Huawei, a leading global information and communications technology (ICT) solutions provider, launched Thursday an agile network architecture technology and agile switch, the S12700.
With a design that has been developed from a service and user experience perspective, the Huawei S12700 switch supports higher reliability and larger Ethernet frames, says the company.
This technology features the key attributes required to support new industry trends including; cloud computing, bring your own device (BYOD), software-defined network (SDN), internet of things (IoT), and big data related analytics for business use.
By launching service and user experience centered agile network architecture, Huawei has introduced SDN architecture into campus networks for the first time, according to the company.
This has enabled networks to provide more efficient and agile services and evolve from single-node service processing into full-scale management and control.
Huawei’s S12700 switch forms part of the industry’s most advanced series of agile switches, and is expected to lead a new revolution in Ethernet switching technology and network construction, says the company.
Featuring automatic network deployment and management, the S12700 supports end-to-end (E2E) security collaboration with the flexibility for fast-changing services and full programmability.
