Huawei releases a new generation of 400GE data center switches

On July 24, Huawei released the Huawei CloudEngine 16800 next-generation 400GE data center switch for the world.

On July 24, Huawei released the Huawei CloudEngine 16800 next-generation 400GE data center switch for the world.

The new platform hardware of the data center switch has made technological breakthroughs in the fields of high-speed information transmission loss and power consumption per Gbit, achieving a single machine to provide the industry’s largest 768-port 400GE switching capacity.

In terms of software, it improves equipment integration and network visualization to meet the needs of a new generation of data center computing power and ultra-large-scale networking in the intelligent era.

At the same time, Huawei and the authoritative organization China Telecommunication Technology Labs jointly announced that Huawei’s new-generation flagship data center switch CloudEngine 16800 has passed strict tests on the forwarding performance of 768 400GE networks in a full frame.

Its new optical interface achieves a 15% reduction in transmission energy consumption of 400GE optical modules, a 5 times increase in transmission distance, and 90% proactive identification of optical link risks, ensuring the sustainability of computing power. It also achieves zero packet drop on the network, improves data calculation efficiency by 27%, and data storage efficiency by 30%.

At the same time, the new generation of intelligent and lossless data center network realizes the integration of computing, storage and business three networks, reducing TCO by 30%. Currently, more than 100 data centers around the world have completed the deployment of a zero-packet drop intelligent and lossless network.
