Huawei S9306 Switch

Product Overview

Huawei S9300 series (S9300 for short) terabit routing switches are next-generation high-end smart switches tailored for multiservice networks. The S9300 uses Huawei’s intelligent multilayer switching concept to provide high-performance L2/L3 switching services as well as rich network applications such as High-Definition (HD) video, elastic cloud computing, hardware IPv6, unified security, and H-QoS. Secure, reliable, and scalable, and providing converged, end-to-end routing and switching functions, the S9300 switches are widely used in Wide Area Networks (WANs), Metropolitan Area Networks (MANs), and data centers to help carriers build application-centric networks. The S9300 is available in three models: S9303, S9306, and S9312. All S9300 models use interchangeable modules and components for inexpensive switching capacity and port expansion. In addition, S9300 models use innovative energy saving technologies that greatly reduce energy consumption and noise without compromising performance or stability. An S9300 running a system software version of V2R5C00 or later can be upgraded to an agile switch by using an X1E card, which is equipped with the first Ethernet Network Processor (ENP) of Huawei.

Product Features

Agile Switch, Enabling Networks to Be More Agile for Services

The high-speed ENP is tailored for Ethernet networks. The ENP's flexible packet processing and traffic control capabilities can meet current and future service requirements and help build a highly scalable network. The ENP has a fully programmable architecture, in which customers can define their own forwarding models, forwarding behaviors, and lookup algorithms. Microcode programmability enables new services to be provisioned within six months, without the need of replacing the hardware. In contrast, with traditional ASIC chips, new services cannot be provisioned until new hardware is developed to support the services, which may take 1 to 3 years, because ASIC chips use a fixed forwarding architecture and follow a fixed forwarding process.

By using an X1E board, the S9300 supports the unified user management function to authenticate both wired and wireless users, ensuring a consistent user experience regardless of whether they use wired or wireless access devices to connect to the network. The unified user management function supports various authentication methods, including 802.1x, MAC, and Portal authentications, and is capable of managing users based on user groups, domains, and time ranges. This function visualizes user and service management and enables the transformation from device-centric management to user-centric management

The X1E board supports the Packet Conservation Algorithm for Internet (iPCA) function, which changes the traditional method of using simulated traffic for fault location. iPCA technology can monitor network quality for any service flow at any network node, at any time, and without extra costs. It can detect temporary service interruptions in a very short time and precisely identify faulty ports. This cutting-edge fault detection technology turns "extensive management" to "fine granular management."

Innovative CSS Technology

S9300 switches can set up a clustering switch system (CSS) through cluster cards or service ports. The CSS provides industry-leading 256 Gbps inter-chassis bandwidth due to Huawei's novel approach of using the switching fabric clustering technology in CSS. Member switches can be connected through the service ports on LPUs. These service ports can be configured as stack member ports and added to a logical stack port to enable connection through SFP+ optical modules and fibers, or direct connection through SFP+ stack cables. Virtualization technology improves link use efficiency and prevents single-point failures through inter-chassis link aggregation.

The S9300 uses route hot backup technology to back up and uninterruptedly forward all data of the control and data planes at Layer 3. This technology significantly improves reliability and performance of the S9300. The inter-chassis links in a CSS can be bundled to improve link use efficiency and eliminate single-point failures.

The S9300 can use common service ports as cluster ports, and member switches can be connected through optical fibers. This increases the permitted distance between switches in the CSS.

All member switches in a CSS are managed through a single IP address, which simplifies network device and topology management, improves network operation efficiency, and reduces maintenance costs.

Carrier-Class Reliability

The S9300's key components, such as MPUs, power supplies, and fans trays, use a redundant design, and all modules are hot swappable to ensure stable network running
