ENTERPRISE STACKABLE SWITCH DELIVERS PREMIUM CAPABILITIES AND ULTIMATE FLEXIBILITY
The Ruckus® ICX® 7450 switch delivers the performance, flexibility, and scalability required for enterprise Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) access deployment. It offers market-leading stacking density with up to 12 switches (576x 1 GbE and 144x 1/10 GbE ports) per stack and combines chassis-level performance with “pay as you grow” scalability of a stackable solution. The mid-market stackable switch is one of the first in its class to offer 40 GbE uplinks, enabling enterprises to dramatically increase their network capacity while using their existing optical wire infrastructure. In addition, the Ruckus ICX 7450 is the industry’s first stackable switching solution to leverage the advantages of site-to-site IPsec VPN security to ensure end-to-end data integrity without the need for dedicated encryption appliances.
The modular design of the switch provides three slots for scaling up to 12 1/10 GbE SFP/SFP+ ports, 12 10GBASE-T ports, or up to three 40 GbE QSFP+ ports for uplink or stacking. Organizations can initially deploy 1 GbE or 10 GbE uplink ports and easily upgrade to 40 GbE ports on-demand with a new, high-speed module. As a result, Ruckus ICX 7450 delivers high performance across all ports for flawless support of latency-sensitive applications.
System-level high-availability features, such as dual hot-swappable, load-sharing, and redundant power supplies, and hot-swappable fan trays offer another level of availability for the campus wiring closet, all in a 1 RU form factor.
The switch is an ideal network solution for campus network 1 GbE access or small aggregation deployment with 10 GbE or 40 GbE uplinks to the core. The switch is also suitable for a data center Top-of-Rack (ToR) solution, providing a mix of 1 GbE and 10 GbE server connectivity ports with 10 GbE or 40 GbE uplinks to the data center aggregation or core.
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.
FULL POWER SUPPORT FOR NEXT-GENERATION EDGE DEVICES
The Ruckus ICX 7450 can deliver both power and data across network connections, providing a single-cable solution for the latest edge devices. In addition to supporting the Power over Ethernet (PoE/PoE+) standards, the switch also supports Power over HDBaseT (PoH) and IEEE 802.3bt ready ports. This high power standard delivers up to 90 watts per port through a standard Ethernet cable, simplifying the wiring of next-generation Ethernet-connected devices such as large HD displays, video surveillance equipment, and VDI thin terminals. The PoE/PoE+ and PoH capabilities reduce the number of required power receptacles and power adapters while increasing reliability and wiring flexibility. With a 1,500-watt PoE budget per switch (with two power supplies), the Ruckus ICX 7450 24- and 48-port PoE models can supply up to Class 4 PoE+ power (30 watts) to every port and PoH power (90 watts) on eight dedicated ports.
