HIGH PERFORMANCE MULTIGIGABIT ACCESS AND AGGREGATION SWITCHES WITH 100GBE SUPPORT
Enterprise networks are no longer confined to providing simple VoIP phone connectivity and access to email and the internet. Today, seamless mobility, Bring Your Own Device (BYOD), social media, web based video conferencing, cloud based SaaS applications and Big Data analytics are all contributing to an environment that demands greater performance and flexibility from the wired and wireless network.
Furthermore, with the rapid adoption of 802.11ac Wave 2 Wi-Fi access points, as well as emerging new Wi-Fi standards, can generate multiple gigabits per second of wireless traffic. As mobile devices usage grows exponentially, they push an everincreasing volume of traffic through the wired edge and new high-performance access points draw more PoE power from edge switches. The wired edge is gradually morphing into a wireless traffic aggregation layer requiring higher performance, availability, and more advanced features.
The Ruckus® ICX® 7650 Switch is designed to meet the new challenges of the multigigabit wireless era. It delivers non-blocking performance, high availability, and scalability with Multigigabit Ethernet access, high PoE output as well as 10 Gigabit Ethernet Aggregation and 40G/100G uplink options.
GIGABIT AND MULTIGIGABIT ACCESS SWITCHES
The Ruckus® ICX® 7650 stackable access switches come in Gigabit and Multigigabit versions. Both come standard with 40G and 100G ports for stacking. The Gigabit model offers 48x 10/100/1000 Mbps ports with 40G uplinks, the Multigigabit model offers 24x 10/100/1000 Mbps ports and 24x 100/1000 Mbps/2.5/5/10 Gbps with 40G/100G uplinks for future ready next generation wireless deployment. Both switches deliver non-blocking performance and offers PoE+, 802.3bt* with up to 1500W of PoE budget with two hot-swappable load-sharing power supplies. The switches are targeted at demanding enterprise customers who need a high performance, highly reliable access switch at the edge of a campus network or as top of the rack switch in the data center.
1G/10G AGGREGATION SWITCH
The stackable ICX 7650 aggregation switch comes standard with 40G and 100G ports for stacking and/or uplinks and dual hot-swap power supplies for maximum reliability. The switch offers 24x 1/10GbE SFP+ ports with legacy OM1/OM2 fiber support and MACsec 128-bit or 256-bit encryption, and 24x GbE SFP ports. It is targeted at customer looking for a cost effective 10GbE aggregation solution for small to midsize campus or data center networks that delivers enterprise features with L2/L3 capabilities, high availability and non-blocking performance and combines chassis-level capability with the “pay as you grow” scalability of a stackable solution. This mid-market 1/10G aggregation switch is the first in its class to offer 100 GbE uplinks, enabling organizations to dramatically increase their network capacity to deploy high-performance wireless access and run next generation applications.
