Ports on Demand

Performance Optimization

What it means:

The Ruckus ICX 7250 Switch has 8 ports that can be upgraded to 10 Gbps port speed with one or more Ports on Demand (PoD) licenses.

Why you should care:

Flexible licensing of 1 GbE to 10 GbE ports, for uplink or stacking, allows organizations to optimize network performance based on specific requirements by simply applying a software license. This eliminates the need to install a separate hardware module and makes network or infrastructure upgrade easier. The results are:

  • Faster response to network changes and needs
  • Cost-effective use of Ruckus switches
  • Stronger investment protection as performance/capacity needs expand

Location and Analytics

What it means:

sFlow is a standards-based packet sampling technology embedded into the Ruckus ICX Switches to provide network managers a scalable technique for measuring network traffic, collecting, storing, and analyzing traffic data. This enables tens of thousands of interfaces to be monitored from a single location.

Why you should care:

With increasing reliance on network services for business critical operations, any change in the network can impact the network performance and reliability. If sFlow is configured on various links, sFlow helps to:

  • Analyze traffic statistics and trends on those links
  • Overcome unexpected network congestion
  • Improve capacity planning
