Huawei S5700 S5720 Series SMB Network Solution

Category: Network, Solutions 628

Huawei two-tier network infrastructure, which includes a stack of two S5720 core switches, and a stack of several S5700 switches.

A SMB network typically mixed and matched several brands of switches interconnected together when it grows from smaller into a bigger one network infrastructure. The switches are usually un-configured and badly managed. When there is a network outage there is no trace to the cause of the problem.

Below is a proposed network solution comprising Huawei S5720 as core, and S5700 as access layer switches. It is a very cost effective and well managed infrastructure for SMB network.

Solution Highlights
  • All gigabit ports for core, access switches ports
  • Core switches stacked and managed as a single unit
  • Access switches stacked and managed as a single unit
  • Core switch redundancy
  • Core switch supports layer 3 switching
  • Scalability – The S5700-SI supports intelligent stacking (iStack). Multiple S5700-SI can be connected with stack cables
    to set up a stack, which functions as a virtual switch
