Ruckus ICX 7650

High Performance Multi-Gigabit Access and Aggregation Switches With 100GbE Support

The Ruckus ICX 7650 Switch is designed to meet the new challenges of the multi-gigabit wireless era. It delivers non-blocking performance, high availability, and scalability with multi-gigabit Ethernet access (2.5/5/10GbE), high PoE output with 802.3bt** support as well as 10 Gigabit Ethernet Aggregation and 40/100GbE uplink options.

The ICX 7650 is an ideal solution for future proof campus edge deployment as an underlay to support the most demanding next generation wireless infrastructure. Additionally the fiber version of the switch delivers a highly cost effective medium density 1/10GbE aggregation solution with 24 SFP & 24SPF+ ports and 40/100GbE uplinks.

The ICX 7650 supports Ruckus Campus Fabric* as both a Port Extender (PE) and a Control Bridge (CB) delivering unmatched flexibility, scalability and simplified management for campus network deployments.

A One-Two Punch For Multi-Gigabit Network Switches

Tecnologia Multigigabit

Tecnologie wireless generali

Cosa significa:

La tecnologia multi-gigabit e, nello specifico, lo standard IEEE 802.3bz, formalmente introdotto come 2.5GBASE-T e 5GBASE-T nel 2016. IEEE 802.3bz è uno standard per Ethernet su coppie di fili in rame a velocità di 2,5 Gbps e 5 Gbps.

Perché è importante:

Le connessioni Gigabit sono state utili per molti anni, offrendo dati rapidi e bassa latenza a laptop, smartphone e altri dispositivi. Tuttavia, l’ultima generazione di AP può sopraffare una connessione a 1 GbE, e la rete cablata diventerebbe un collo di bottiglia per le prestazioni. La tecnologia multi-gigabit, che opera sopra 1 Gbps, supporta nuove velocità dati di 2,5 e 5 Gbps, sfruttando al contempo il cablaggio Cat 5e (per 2,5 Gbps) o Cat 6 (per 5 Gpbs) comunemente installato. Pertanto, le aziende possono potenziare le prestazioni delle proprie Wi-Fi reti nella maniera più efficiente e meno scomoda. Gli switch serie ICX Z e l’access point Ruckus R720 di Ruckus supportano la tecnologia multi-gigabit/802.3bz per aiutare le aziende a massimizzare le prestazioni della rete Wi-Fi.
