slots, including eight service slots, which can
be used with 100GE and 400GE line cards. It
supports 800GE line cards in the future,
easily coping with future bandwidth
expansion needs.

supports up to 288 x 400GE and 1152 x
100GE line-rate ports, and allows smooth
evolution to 800GE, satisfying requirements
in diversified scenarios of data center

Innovative Architecture Design,
Achieving Highly Efficient Data Transmission

Zero Midplane

Clos Architecture

Service line cards are directly connected to SFUs, without the use of the midplane. Data can directly reach the SFU, with a
short distance. This significantly reduces the transmission loss and achieves efficient data transmission.

Communication at the Maximum Distance of 120 KM and Easy DCI

400GE ZR/ZR+ optical modules are used for interconnection, reducing Optical Transport Units (OTUs) and helping a cloud or hyper-scale
data center network to adapt to growing high-bandwidth services

Hardware-level Redundancy,
Ensuring Nonstop Services and Data
Center Network Stability

SFUs in N+1 Redundancy Mode
SFUs use N+1 redundancy and work in load balancing
mode, ensuring nonstop services.
Power Modules in M+N Redundancy Mode
Ten hot-swappable power modules are available. When a
fault occurs, services are switched within seconds. Services
are not interrupted when a power module is replaced. The
switch provides different protection measures for links.
Fan Trays in 2+1 Redundancy Mode
Three hot-swappable fan trays are available. The speed of
fan modules can be intelligently adjusted, ensuring highly
efficient heat dissipation.
Supervisor Engin es in 1+1 Redundancy Mode
The 1+1 hot standby design ensure continuous operation of
the switch.

Innovative Technology Design and Highly Efficient Heat Dissipation

MACsec Data Encryption and Transmission,
Effectively Protecting Service Data Security

MACsec provides hardware-level data encryption. With MACsec and 802.1X configured, the switch can strictly identify and verify transmitted data.
With MACsec, the switch achieves interface-based secure line-rate transmission, effectively preventing data from being intercepted and obtained maliciously
and ensuring service data security.

Telemetry-based Network Monitoring and Automated O&M,
Making Management Simple and Efficient

The switch enabled with telemetry provides clear data status and hierarchy.
The switch uses the push mode to proactively collect and push information and to provide sub-second-level network monitoring in real time,
making network management more efficient and accurate.

Order Information

Perform the following steps to configure an RG-N18000-XH series device:

  • Select the switch and supervisor module.
  • Select the line cards and switch fabric modules based on the service requirements. If redundancy is required, youare advised to install all switch fabric modules for N+1 bandwidth redundancy.
  • Select the power supply modules based on the power requirements of the entire device. (N+1 redundancy is recommended at a minimal level.
