Ruckus ICX 7750 Campus Switch
The Ruckus ICX 7750 Campus Switch delivers industry-leading 10/40 GbE port density, advanced high-availability capabilities, and flexible stacking architecture, making it the most robust Brocade aggregation and core distributed chassis switch offering for enterprise LANs. In addition to rich Layer 3 features, the Ruckus ICX 7750 supports 12-unit distributed chassis stacking or Multi-Chassis Trunking (MCT) and is an integral part of Brocade Campus Fabric technology for campus LANs.
Ruckus ICX 7850 Campus Switch
The Ruckus ICX 7850 Campus Switch is a high performance stackable core switch for next generation 100G campus. It delivers nonblocking line-rate performance on all ports concurrently, with a switching capacity of up to 6.4 Tbps. The ICX 7850 supports the next generation Ethernet speeds with 10/25 Gigabit Ethernet at the aggregation and 40/100 Gigabit Ethernet at the core to meet high volume of traffic driving from the edge into the core. It also supports a rich array of routing protocols and delivers a range of high-availability hardware and software features.
SmartZone™ 100 (SZ-100) is the most scalable, resilient, and highest performing Wireless LAN controller within the Ruckus family of WLAN controllers for enterprises around the world. It manages up to 1,024 ZoneFlex Smart Wi-Fi access points, 2,000 WLANs, and 25,000 clients per device. Its unique SmartZone architecture allows the SZ-100 to be deployed in a 3+1 Active-Active cluster. With Active-Active clustering all members (up to 4) of a cluster will actively manage APs in the network, providing enhanced resiliency for high availability requirements. With clustering, the SZ-100 can manage up to 3,000 APs and 60,000 clients.
Smart licensing allows customers to manage all licensing needs online at https://support.ruckuswireless.com. With Smart licensing, customers have the ability to buy and assign licenses at a granular level down to 1 (one) AP license.
The SmartZone 300 (SZ300) Flagship Large Scale WLAN Controller is designed for Service Provider and Large Enterprises, which prefer to use appliances. The Carrier Grade platform supports N+1 Active/Active clustering, comprehensive integrated management functionality, high performance operations and flexibility to address many different implementation scenarios.
The SZ300 supports up to 10,000 AP and 100,000 Clients per unit and 30,000 AP and 300,000 Clients per 3+1 Active/Active Cluster, and runs SmartZone 3.5+ release firmware.
Note: The Virtual SmartCell Gateway (vSCG) has a new name: Virtual SmartZone (vSZ). Same product, new name.
The Ruckus Virtual SmartZone (vSZ) is an NFV-based and cloud-ready WLAN controller for service providers and enterprises ready to elevate their WLAN deployment to the next level of flexibility, resiliency, andscale. vSZ operates in two modes: Essentials and High-Capacity.
Enterprises will find that the Essentials mode (vSZ-E) delivers world-beating Wi-Fi performance in an incredibly easy to manage and cost-effective package that’s friendly to both virtualized and/or distributed environments.
Managed Service Providers deploying the High-Capacity mode (vSZ-H) in their data center will experience a scalable carrier-class Wi-Fi rollout brimming with unique service provider features ready to back up their service level agreements.
The Ruckus Virtual SmartZone-Dataplane (vSZ-D) is available on the vSZ platform and offers organizations more flexibility in deploying the SZ dataplane as needed in an NFV architechture-aligned fashion. Deploying vSZ-D offers secured tunneling of user data traffic that encrypts payload traffic, maintains flat network topology, enables mobility across L2 subnets, supports POS data traffic for PCI compliance, and offers differentiated per site policy control and QoS, etc.
