The Ruckus ICX 7250 switch combines enterprise-class features, manageability and the flexibility and “pay as you grow” scalability of a stackable solution. The switch delivers the performance required for enterprise Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) access deployment. It raises the bar with up to 8x10 GbE ports for uplinks or stacking and market-leading stacking density with up to 12 switches (576x1 GbE) per stack. Ruckus ICX 7250 switches also offer an external power supply for failover resiliency, as well as increased PoE/PoE+ port availability.
The Ruckus ICX 7250 is easy to deploy, manage, and integrate into both new and existing networks. Organizations can buy only what they need today, and easily scale out as demand grows and new technologies emerge. Optimizing performance based on specific requirements is easy with flexible licensing upgrade which allows users to upgrade from 1 GbE to 10 GbE ports for uplink and stacking.
Deployed as a standalone switch, a stack, or a network fabric, organizations reap the benefits of a flexible platform and the assurance that their investments are protected.
The Ruckus ICX 7150 is one of the ICX switch families delivering the enterprise class features for flexibility, scalability and simplified management.
- Ruckus Campus Fabric technology delivers unmatched flexibility, scalability and simplified management for campus network deployments. Incorporating all of the ICX 7000 switch families with up to 1800 ports in a single logical domain, Campus Fabric allows customers the benefits of a traditional chassis, with the flexibility of stackable switches at a dramatically reduced Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).
- Advanced stacking goes beyond traditional stacking with capabilities that take flexibility, ease of management and cost effectiveness to then next level, including:
- Stacking on standard Ethernet ports
- Long-distance stacking
- No hardware module require for stacking
- In Service Software Upgrade (ISSU) to minimize downtime
- Superior scalability with the industry-leading number of switches per stack
- Stacking at the access, aggregation and core layers
- Enterprise-Class Availability to improve resiliency and minimize downtime, including:
- Hitless stack failover
- Hot-insertion/removal of stack members
- Redundant power supplies
- In Service Software Upgrades for switch stacks
- On-boarding and security policies across ICX switches and wireless networks.
- OpenFlow 1.3 protocol support in hybrid mode allows user to deploy traditional Layer 2/3 forwarding with OpenFlow on the same port for Software Defined Network (SDN) enabled programmatic control of the network
- Open Standards based management, monitoring and authentication
- sFlow-based network monitoring to help analyze traffic statistics and trends on every link and overcome unexpected network congestion
- Open-standards management includes Command Line Interface (CLI), Secure Shell (SSHv2), Secure Copy (SCP), and SNMPv3
- Support for Access Controller Access Control System (TACACS/TACACS+) and RADIUS authentication helps ensure secure operator access
- LLDP and LLDP-MED protocol support for configuring, discovering, and managing network infrastructure such as QoS, security policies, VLAN assignments, PoE power levels, and service priorities
