2 Abstract

The CE6810-48S4Q-EI and CE6850-48T4Q-EI fixed data center switches will no longer be sold after December 31, 2016. Huawei will not accept new orders for the two switches after the date.

Huawei provides the CE6851-48S6Q-HI switch to replace the CE6810-48S4Q-EI switch and the CE6850-48T6Q-HI switch to replace the CE6850-48T4Q-EI switch. The CE6851-48S6Q-HI switch can completely replace the CE6810-48S4Q-EI switch in performance. The CE6850-48T6Q-HI switch can completely replace the CE6850-48T4Q-EI switch in performance.

This PCN is intended for the customers who purchased Huawei CE6810-48S4Q-EI and CE6850-48T4Q-EI fixed switches.
