A fully connected, intelligent world is fast approaching. As data centers evolve from the cloud era to the AI era, they become the infrastructure core for new technologies such as 5G and Artificial Intelligence (AI).
The Huawei CloudEngine 16800 is the industry’s first data center switch built for the AI era. Huawei defines three data center switch characteristics in the AI era: Embedded AI chip, 48-port 400 GE line card per slot, and the capability to evolve to the autonomous driving network. With an innovative incorporation of AI technologies into data center switches, Huawei can help customers accelerate their intelligent transformation.
