10/40 GBE DISTRIBUTED CHASSIS SWITCH FOR AGGREGATION/CORE
Today’s enterprise network core and aggregation layers are quickly moving to 10 and 40 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) switching as enterprises rapidly adopt applications such as High-Definition (HD) video, Bring Your Own Device (BYOD), and Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI), which drive the need for resilient, high-bandwidth access networks. To meet these challenges, campus network solutions must provide better performance, port density, reliability, security, Quality of Service (QoS), and Total Cost of Ownership (TCO). Likewise, data centers are expanding to accommodate data storage growth. Requirements such as application convergence, non-stop operation, scalability, high availability, and power efficiency are placing even greater demands on the network infrastructure.
The Ruckus® ICX® 7750 switch delivers industry-leading 10/40 GbE port density, advanced high-availability capabilities, and flexible stacking architecture, making it the most robust Ruckus aggregation and core distributed chassis switch offering for enterprise LANs. In addition to rich Layer 3 features, the Ruckus ICX 7750 scales to 12-unit distributed-chassis stacking and serves as the Control Bridge for Ruckus Campus Fabric technology.
Part of the Ruckus ICX family of switches for campus LAN and classic Ethernet data center environments, the Ruckus ICX 7750 switch is a 1U high-performance solution that meets the needs of business-sensitive campus deployments and classic data center environments. With a low latency, cut-through, non-blocking architecture, the Ruckus ICX 7750 provides a cost-effective, robust solution for the most demanding deployments.
Deployed as a standalone switch, a stack, or a network fabric, organizations reap the benefits of a flexible platform and the assurance that their investments are protected.
LEADING-EDGE DESIGN FLEXIBILITY AND RELIABILITY
The Ruckus ICX 7750 switch provides the capabilities of a chassis with the flexibility and cost effectiveness of a stackable switch. Ruckus ICX 7750 is available in three models: the Ruckus ICX 7750-48F, ICX 7750-48C, and ICX 7750- 26Q. The Ruckus ICX 7750-48F and ICX 7750-48C both offer 48 10 GbE ports (SFP+ and 10GBASE-T, respectively) and up to 12 40 GbE ports (six optional). The Ruckus ICX 7750-26Q offers up to 32 40 GbE QSFP+ ports (six optional). All models support stacking, which allows organizations to buy only the ports they need now and expand later by adding switches to the stack where and when they are needed. This eliminates the need for a forklift upgrade and helps avoid provisioning an underutilized, centralized chassis.
Up to 12 Ruckus ICX 7750 switches can be stacked together using up to 12 fullduplex 40 Gbps standard QSFP+ stacking ports that provide an unprecedented maximum of 5.76 Tbps of aggregated stacking bandwidth with full redundancy, eliminating inter-switch bottlenecks.
Ruckus ICX switches support a distributed chassis deployment model that uses standards-based optics and cabling interface connections to help ensure maximum distance between campus switches—up to 10 km—and minimum cabling costs—up to 50 percent less than incumbent solutions. The distributed chassis design future-proofs campus networks by allowing networks to easily and cost-effectively expand in scale and capabilities.
