Ruckus ICX 7650

High Performance Multigigabit Access and Aggregation Switches With 100GbE Support

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 (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 genration 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.

Multigigabit Technology

General Networking Technologies

What it means:

Multi-gigabit technology and specifically the IEEE 802.3bz standard, was formally introduced as 2.5GBASE-T and 5GBASE-T in 2016. IEEE 802.3bz is a standard for Ethernet over twisted-pair copper wire at speeds of 2.5 Gbps and 5 Gbps.

Why you should care:

Gigabit connections have served us well for many years, delivering fast low-latency data to laptops, smartphones and other devices. However, the latest generation of APs can overwhelm a 1 GbE connection so that the wired network becomes a performance bottleneck. Multi-gigabit technology, which operates above 1 Gbps, supports a new data rate of 2.5 Gbps, while still leveraging commonly deployed Cat 5e cabling. Enterprises can therefore maximize the performance of their WiFi networks in the most cost-effective, least disruptive manner. The Ruckus ICX Z-series switches and the Ruckus R720 access point support multi-gigabit technology / 802.3bz to help organizations maximize their WiFi network performance.
