Multi-Gigabit Wired and Wireless Access
Multi-Gigabit Speeds—Without Cable Plant Retrofit
Ready for more? More powerful, always-connected mobile devices. More bandwidth-hungry, latency-sensitive video and cloud applications. More mobility - to work and play anywhere, and everywhere.
To deliver more, network access infrastructure—from access points to switches—must work together like never before.
The problem: 802.11ac Wave 2 and future wireless technologies can exceed the connection performance of Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) switch ports. Some vendors cite the only option is to upgrade to 5 or 10 GbE at the network edge—at a huge cost, with huge disruption. Ruckus instead offers our customers options that include 802.11ac Wave 2 optimized 2.5GbE access points and switches, and 2.5/5/10GbE switches to support next generation Wi-Fi standards.
Using Ruckus optimized wireless and wired multi-gigabit solutions, you can get multi-gigabit access capacity over your existing cable plant—at the right price, without the disruption.
Optimized Wi-Fi through Switching
802.11ac was built to handle more devices and bandwidth-hungry applications, but a single 802.11ac Wave 2 client can quickly overtax existing 1 GbE backhaul links on a typical AP. Ruckus multi-gigabit access switches liberate backhaul performance bottlenecks delivering up to 2.5Gbps per port. Furthermore, 5/10 GbE multi-gigabit switches offer up to 1500 watts of Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) budget and uplinks of 100 Gbps to future-proof any network.
Use Existing Cabling
Double the capacity per port with existing Cat 5e Ethernet cabling with 2.5 GbE multi-gigabit AP (R720) and switches (ICX 7150-Z Series). With Cat 6 or 6A installed, consider the flagship ICX 7650 Z-Series switches with 2.5/5/10 GbE ports.
Balanced Performance and Cost
Eliminate overpaying for performance that cannot be used with our 2.5GbE access APs and switches. The latest ICX 7650 Z-Series offer even more performance for the next generation of Wi-Fi soon to come.
