S12708 overview

HUAWEI S12700 series agile switches (S12700 for short) are designed for next-generation campus networks. Using a fully programmable switching architecture, the S12700 allows fast, flexible function customization and supports smooth evolution to Software-Defined Networking (SDN). The S12700 uses a Huawei Ethernet Network Processor (ENP) and provides a native Wireless Access Controller (AC) to help build a wired and wireless converged network. Its Unified User Management capabilities deliver unified user and service management, and Huawei’s Packet Conservation Algorithm for the Internet (iPCA) supports hop-by-hop monitoring of any service flows, helping manage services in a more refined way.
The S12700 runs the Huawei Versatile Routing Platform (VRP), which provides high-performance L2/L3 switching services and rich network services, such as Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) VPN, hardware IPv6, desktop cloud, and video conferencing. In addition, the S12700 series uses a variety of reliability technologies, including non-stop forwarding, hardware Eth-OAM/BFD, ring network protection, and Cluster Switch System Generation2 (CSS2) — a switch fabric hardware clustering technology that allows 1+N backup of Main Processing Units (MPUs). These technologies help improve productivity and maximize network operation time, reducing the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).
