在開放標準 IEEE 802.1BR Bridge Port Extension (橋接連接埠擴充) 技術的基礎上,Ruckus 校園網狀架構技術將網路存取、彙總和核心層合併為共用服務的單一網域,進而整合了頂級、中階和入門款交換器。

橋接控制和連接埠延伸是構成校園網狀架構的重要基石。傳統的彙總功能/核心層將由具備橋接控制功用的交換器取而代之,在校園網狀架構技術中扮演中樞角色。以連接埠延伸模式運作的交換器也將取代存取層;這些交換器皆可連接個人電腦、筆記型電腦、IP 電話和其他存取裝置。控制橋接功能會使用以 IEEE 802.1BR 標準定義的通訊協定,與外接的連接埠延伸裝置進行通訊。



有別於傳統的三層網路設計,Ruckus 校園網路將網路合併成單一邏輯裝置。這種設計可方便集中控管,簡化部署和服務管理作業,並可隨使用需求成長輕鬆擴充。交換器之間的所有連結隨時都保持開啟,流量負載也維持平衡。帶來的成效包括:

  • 達到最佳效能
  • 彈性提升
  • 網路服務部署更加迅速

OpenFlow 混合連接埠模式



透過 Ruckus 的 OpenFlow 混合連接埠模式,使用者可針對 Ruckus ICX 交換器上的任何連接埠啟用 OpenFlow,並可同時支援其他傳統交換器功能,且不會提升延遲情況。


客戶通常希望能夠建立 OpenFlow 層疊,與既有的工作網路並行使用。OpenFlow 層疊主要用於支援基礎網路之外的新高階服務和 SDN 應用程式。在 Ruckus 混合連接埠模式下,便不需要另外建立網路,也能享有 SDN 和 OpenFlow 的優勢。




sFlow 是內嵌於 Ruckus ICX 交換器的標準型封包取樣技術,可為網路管理員提供測量網路流量、收集、排序及分析網路數據的可擴充技術。有了這項技術,便能從單一位置監控數以萬計的不同介面。


隨著企業的重要營運項目日漸仰賴網路服務,網路方面的任何變更都可能影響網路效能和可靠性。若能為各種連結設定 sFlow,則 sFlow 將可協助企業:

  • 分析這些連結的流量統計資料和趨勢
  • 化解出乎意料的網路壅塞情形
  • 改善容量規劃
