Huawei Agile Switch (S12700) key innovations
Hover over the dotsDiscover the key tech innovations within the new Huawei Agile Switch and the main differences between Mr. Switch and Mr. Agile Switch in the two videos on this site
Full programmabilityStandard switches use ASIC chips, but Huawei Agile Switch uses a Huawei Ethernet Network Processor (ENP) chip, enabling a fully-programmable switching architecture that speeds up service innovation, without the need to replace any hardware.
In the videos… the whiteboard scene
Mr. Switch is not fully programmable, so he processes more instructions than Agile Switch, slowing his data management.
Agile Switch can be programmed to listen to an external controller or to process specific data streams, resulting in faster data & network management.
WLAN Access Control
Agile Switch is equipped with a native “wireless access controller” (AC) to build a converged wired and wireless network, w/out additional AC hardware.
This setup, combined with native broadband remote access server (BRAS) capabilities, deliver unified user management (U2M).
w/Unified User Management
In the videos… the placards scene
Mr. Switch is not equipped w/built-in WLAN AC or U2M capabilities, so wired and wireless users are managed separately.
Thanks to its built-in WLAN AC and Huawei’s proprietary U2M technology, Agile Switch manages indistinctly wired and wireless devices.
2nd-gen Clustered Switch Systems (CSS2)Agile Switch employs 2nd-gen switch fabric hardware clustering technology (CSS2). Control and data packets are only forwarded once, reducing both service interruption risks and transmission latency. What’s more, iPCA (Packet Conservation Algorithm for Internet) is deployed for network quality monitoring..
In the videos… the videoconference scene
Data latency caused by Mr. Switch interrupts service and loses data during a video chat, so IT Manager can’t speak with his team.
Thanks to CSS2 technology, Agile Switch optimizes both the data stream & transmission latency, for a flawless video chat. IT Manager can finally speak to his team!
