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 a 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 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 Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).
Appearance and Structure
The S12710 chassis is 15 U high (1 U = 44.45 mm). When the chassis has no cable management frame installed, the dimensions (H x W x D) are 663.9 mm x 442 mm x 517.4 mm. When the chassis has cable management frames installed, the dimensions (H x W x D) are 663.9 mm x 442 mm x 585 mm. Figure 1 and Figure 2 show the S12710 chassis.
Figure 3 shows the front structure of the S12710 chassis.
Figure 3 S12710 chassis structure (front view)
|1. Ten LPUs, including:
||2. Two MPUs||3. A pair of mounting brackets
The mounting brackets are used to secure the chassis in the cabinet.
|4. Four power modules||5. Two CMUs||6. Front ESD jack
The ground terminal of an ESD wrist strap can be inserted into this jack. The ESD wrist strap can provide ESD protection when the chassis is reliably grounded.
|7. Cable management frames
Cable management frames are used to route cables.
|8. Two Switch Fabric Units|
