Features and Highlights
Innovative Energy-saving Design
CloudEngine S1730S series switches can adjust the output power based on the cable length. It can also set any ports that are not transmitting traffic to sleep mode.
The models that use a fan-free design reduce power consumption and noise.Non-blocking and High-speed Forwarding
All ports on CloudEngine S1730S series switches provide Layer 2 line-rate forwarding capabilities to ensure non-blocking packet forwarding. CloudEngine S1730S models provide both optical and electrical GE uplink ports, which facilitate user access and are cost-effective.
The CloudEngine S1730S-S and S1730S-H support up to 8K and 16K MAC address entries, respectively, facilitating
network expansion and new service provisioning.
CloudEngine S1730S series switches support flow control. If congestion occurs on the local device, the local device sends a message to the remote device, instructing the remote device to temperately stop sending packets.
When a PoE switch is restarted after its software version is upgraded, the power supply to PDs is not interrupted. This
capability ensures that the connected PDs are not powered off during the switch restart.Convenient Management and Maintenance
Web-managed S1730S-S models come with a web network management system (NMS), simplifying device configuration and management.
Fully-managed S1730S-H models allow for the use of a Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) NMS for
centralized configuration and management.
Web-managed and fully-managed S1730S models support a variety of intelligent O&M features for audio and video
services, including the Enhanced Media Delivery Index (eMDI). With eMDI, the switch can act as a monitored node to
periodically collect statistics and report audio and video service indicators to CampusInsight. In this way, CampusInsight can quickly demarcate audio and video service quality faults based on the results of multiple monitored nodes.
Switches support the intelligent upgrade feature. Specifically, switches obtain the version upgrade path and download the newest version for upgrade from the Huawei Online Upgrade Platform (HOUP). The entire upgrade process is highly automated and achieves one-click upgrade. In addition, preloading the version is supported, which greatly shortens the upgrade time and service interruption time.
The intelligent upgrade feature greatly simplifies device upgrade operations and makes it possible for the customer to
upgrade the version independently. This greatly reduces the customer's maintenance costs. In addition, the upgrade policies on the HOUP platform standardize the upgrade operations, which greatly reduces the risk of upgrade failures.
Powerful Security Performance
CloudEngine S1730S series switches provide a wide range of security features, including 802.1X, RADIUS, Portal, and
NAC. These switches also support packet filtering based on MAC addresses or interfaces in order to defend against hackers and virus attacks.
High Networking and Bandwidth Extensibility
CloudEngine S1730S series switches provide LACP, STP, RSTP, and MSTP functions to implement link aggregation and
