The H3C S9800 DataCenter Cloud High Density Switch Series is designed for cloud services data centers. It deploys industry leading CLOS architecture, providing highest switching performance and most comprehensive data centre features of this kind in the industry.

S9800 is industry’s highest port density high-end switch per RU. S9810 can provide upto 480 wire speed 10G ports or 120 wire speed 40G ports, delivering super high density 10GE, 40GE and even 100G port density. In order to fulfill data centre cloud virtualization requirements, S9800 switch series supports IRF2 (Intelligent Resilient Framework version 2) and MDC (Multitenant Devices Context). At the same time, S9800 switch series uses latest Comware V7 platform, which is a modular design and reliable, highly efficient and open operating system.

The S9800 switch series includes S9804 and S9810, two models which meet various port density and performance requirements. The S9800 switch series can work with H3C routers, switches, security devices, IMC, and H3Cloud to provide wide variety solutions.

Advanced CLOS multi-grade multi-plane switching architecture

* Adopt CLOS multi-grade multi-plane architecture, providing industry leading port density

* S9810 can provide max.480 line-speed 10G interfaces or 120 line-speed 40G interface per chassis, fulfilling high density 10G, 40G and future 100G application

Virtualization technologies - IRF2

* IRF2 can virtualize up to four S9800 switche into one logical IRF fabric. IRF2 delivers the following benefits:

* High Availability (HA) - Patented hot standby technology to provide data backup and non-stop forwarding on the control plane and data plane. This improves availability and performance, eliminates single-point failures, and ensures service continuity.

* Distribution - Multi-chassis link aggregation to enable load sharing and backup over multiple uplinks, improving redundancy and link utilization.

* Easy Management - A single IP address to manage the whole IRF fabric, which simplifies device and topology management, improving operating efficiency, and lowering network maintenance cost.

Virtualization technologies – MDC

* MDC virtualizes one S9800 switch into multiple logical switches, enabling multiple services to share one core switch. The 1:N virtualization maximizes switch utilization, reduces network TCO, and ensures secure isolation of services.

DC-class HA

* BFD for VRRP/BGP/IS-IS/RIP/OSPF/RSVP/static routing.

* NSR/GR for OSFP/BGP/IS-IS/RSVP.

* 1+1 redundancy for fan trays.

* N+M redundancy for power modules.

* S9810 1+1 redundancy for control engines.

Multi-level security protection

* The S9800 switch series use QoS policies to filter and limit traffic from data plane to control plane. During a DoS attack, the switch can identify and protect important packets and discard attack packets, ensuring normal operation.

* Supports a large numbers of ACLs while ensuring line-speed forwarding. ACLs can identify and control L2/IPv4/IPv6/MPLS traffic by using combinations of packet fields.

Comprehensive maintenance and monitoring

* Online state monitoring - Uses a dedicated engine to monitor the state of switch fabric modules, backplane channels, service communication channels, key chips, and storage.

* Card isolation - Isolates specified cards from the forwarding plane. The isolated cards still work on the control plane, allowing the user to perform management operations such as real-time diagnosis and CPLD upgrade on the isolated cards without affecting system operation.

* Ethernet OAM provides multiple device-level and network-level fault detection methods.

DC-oriented features

* Low latency, suitable for high performance data centre

* Distributed ingress buffers (100 ms) to accommodate burst traffic in data centers

* Large capacities for storing ARP/ND, suitable for large scale flat data centre

* Advanced flow control and back pressure mechanism for new generation data centre lossless design

* FCOE - Integrates heterogeneous LANs and storage networks in data centers. FCOE and CEE integrate data, computing, and storage networks in data centers, reducing the costs for building and expanding data centers

Green

* Intelligent EMS engine system - Provides smart power management that supports sequential power-on and power-off and device status check. Sequential power-on and power-off reduces power impulse and electromagnetic radiation, and increases the lifetime of the device. Additionally, device status checks can isolate faulty and idle cards to reduce power consumption.

* Smart fan management - Collects fan temperature, calculates fan speed, and assigns the calculated speed to the fan tray. In addition, it detects fan speeds, fault alarms, and performs speed adjustment based on configurations and area, reducing power consumption and noise, increasing the fan's lifetime.

* Internal interface monitoring - Automatically shuts down unused internal interfaces to reduce power consumption.

* RoHS compliance - The S9800 series meets the EU RoHS safety standards.
