    S12700 Series Agile Switches

    Huawei S12700 series agile core switches are designed for next-generation campus networks. The S12700 series uses a fully programmable architecture to meet fast-changing service needs, and allow new services to be flexibly and quickly provisioned in six months.

    The S12700 series provides high-performance Layer 2/Layer3 switching services, supports millions of hardware entries, and can meet campus network evolution over the next 10 years.

    The S12700 series has built-in large-capacity WLAN AC functionalities, achieving wired and wireless convergence and eliminating the capacity bottleneck of ACs.
