At the core of innovations in cloud data center networks.

CloudEngine data center switches Ethernet switches widely used in diverse applications and in different network sizes, in both data centers and high-end campus networks   feature network scaling, automation, programmability, and real-time visibility.

Huawei CloudEngine 12800 series switches are high-performance core switches designed for data centers and high-end campus networks. Providing stable, reliable, secure, and fast L2 and L3 switching services, the switches help enterprises build elastic, virtual, agile, and high-quality networks.

CloudEngine 12800 boasts an ultra-large switching capacity of up to 178 Tbit/s (scalable to 1032 Tbit/s) and supports 576 x 100 GE, 576 x 40 GE, 2304 x 25 GE, or 2304 x 10 GE line-speed interfaces. Coupled with industrial-grade reliability, comprehensive virtualization capabilities, and a variety of data center service features, the switches meet the diverse requirements of data center networks of tomorrow, today. And thanks to multiple energy conservation technologies and a strict front-to-back airflow design, CloudEngine 12800 can do more all while consuming less power.

Intelligent O&M

Google Remote Procedure Call (gRPC)-based telemetry helps detect network-wide paths and monitors network health in real-time.


A single switch can be virtualized into up to 16 logical switches. Border Gateway Protocol Ethernet Virtual Private Network (BGP EVPN) supports resource sharing among data centers.

High Quality

A patented, strict front-to-rear airflow design isolates line card and switch fabric unit airflows, greatly improving heat dissipation efficiency.
