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.
POE POWER TO SUPPORT NEXT-GENERATION EDGE DEVICES
The Ruckus ICX 7650 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 ICX 7650 supports the pending IEEE 802.3bt standard. This high-power standard delivers up to 90 watts per port through a standard Ethernet cable, simplifying the wiring of nextgeneration Ethernet-connected devices such as large HD displays, video surveillance equipment, and VDI thin terminals. These ports are also compatible with uPoE (60 watts). The PoE/PoE+ and 802.3bt 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 7650 PoE models can supply up to full Class 4 PoE+ power (30 watts) to all 48 port and 802.3bt power (90 watts) on eight ports on the ICX 7650-48ZP and the 24 Multigigabit ports on the ICX 7650-48ZP.
MULTIGIGABIT ETHERNET SUPPORT
Designed to handle 802.11ac Wave 2 access points, next-generation 802.11ax standard and future wireless technology evolution, the Ruckus ICX 7650-48ZP switch offers 24x 100/1000 Mbps/2.5/5/10 ports to connect Multigigabit wireless access points. Moreover, the switch’s non-blocking architecture offers up to 200 Gbps of uplink bandwidth, ensuring smooth end-to-end traffic flow from the wireless edge to the core.
EEE POWER SAVINGS
The Ruckus ICX 7650 Switch supports the IEEE 802.3az standard for Energy Efficient Ethernet (EEE), reducing power consumption during periods of low utilization. Ports are placed into a low power mode when no data is being transmitted.
DATA CENTER TOP-OF-RACK SWITCH
With class-leading 10 GbE and 40/100 GbE port count, the Ruckus ICX 7650 is a great solution as a Top-of-Rack (ToR) switch in a mixed 1GbE/10GbE server connectivity environment. It is designed to fit in server racks, consuming only one rack unit and offering dual integrated power supplies and fan assemblies with front-to-back or back-to-front airflow for flexible cooling options. In data center environments where servers have a mixed of 1 GbE and 10 GbE network interfaces, the 1RU switch provides a cost-effective 1 GbE/10 GbE ToR switch with 40/100 GbE uplinks to connect to the data center spine switches.
