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 challenge: 802.11ac, 802.11ax 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 10 GbE at the network edge—at a huge cost, with huge disruption. Ruckus instead offers our customers options that include access points and switches optimized for 802.11ac with 2.5GbE connections or 802.11ax and future generations with 2.5/5/10GbE connections.
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.
