High Performance Multigigabit Access and Aggregation Switches with 100 GbE 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 ever-increasing 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 line rate performance, high availability, and scalability with Multigigabit Ethernet access, high PoE output as well as 10 Gigabit Ethernet Aggregation and 40G/100G uplink options.
