-- CloudEngine S12700E adopts an innovative architecture that separates the
control plane from the switching plane. This allows bandwidth to be
increased by simply upgrading the switch fabric unit (SFU). What's more,
the CloudEngine S12700E reaches an all-time high switching capacity of
57.6 Tbps, six times the industry average(Tolly Test Report

evolution of large enterprise campuses over the next decade.
-- CloudEngine S12700E innovatively introduces a cell switching mechanism
that achieves non-blocking, lossless data forwarding based on dynamic
load balancing. This design efficiently resolves the congestion problem
faced by conventional hash algorithm-based packet switching
technologies, and in doing so ensures the service experience of
network-wide users.
-- Designed with the industry-leading native wireless access controller
(WAC) feature, CloudEngine S12700E implements wired and wireless
convergence by managing a maximum of 10,240 wireless access points (APs)
and supporting 50,000 concurrent users. It is the ideal core switch for
fully-wireless campus networks in the Wi-Fi 6 era.
Up until now, Huawei CloudEngine S series campus switches have served more than 1500 campus network customers worldwide across sectors such as government, education, finance, energy, transportation, manufacturing, and retail, helping them achieve their digital transformation goals.
