Overview:

Enterprise stackable switch delivers gigabit, multigigabit and fiber connectivity, to support next generation wireless access

The CommScope RUCKUS® ICX 7550 switch delivers the premium performance and scalability required for Wi-Fi 6 deployments and beyond with up to 48 ports of multigigabit connectivity and full 90 watts of 802.3bt PoE power per port with perpetual and fast-boot PoE support. It offers market-leading stacking density with up to 12 switches (up to 576 gigabit, multigigabit or fiber ports) per stack and combines chassis-level performance with “pay as you grow” scalability of a stackable solution. The mid-market stackable switch is one of the first in its class to offer 100 GbE uplinks, enabling enterprises to dramatically increase their network capacity while using their existing optical wire infrastructure.

The RUCKUS® ICX® 7550 series of mid-range stackable switches are purpose-built to provide wired connectivity at the edge of the network for the latest generation Wi-Fi 6 Access-Points. With high density multigigabit Ethernet ports and the latest 802.11bt 90W PoE power, the ICX 7550 delivers the performance, flexibility, and scalability required for the most demanding campus deployment scenarios.

The ICX 7550 comes in 8 different models that can all be seamlessly stacked together to cover a broad range of deployment scenarios including gigabit or multigigabit network edge and 1/10 gigabit fiber for network aggregation or fiber to the room as well a smart building network edge with a class leading 2000W PoE budget and up to 90W of power delivery per port.

Figure 1: Up to 12 Ruckus ICX 7550 switches can be stacked together using two full-duplex QSFP+ 40 Gbps ports that provide a fully redudant backplane with 960 Gbps of stacking bandwidth.

Port and Service Module Options:

The ICX 7550 comes in 8 different models that can all be seamlessly stacked together to cover a broad range of deployment scenarios including gigabit or multigigabit network edge and 1/10 gigabit fiber for network aggregation or fiber to the room as well a smart building network edge with a class leading 2000W PoE budget and up to 90W of power delivery per port.

Multigigabit Network Edge

The RUCKUS ICX 7550 multigigabit models come in 24- and 48-port offering class leading multigigabit port density with a mix of 2.5G and 2.5/5/10G ports delivering the ultimate solution for WiFi 6 access points Ethernet connectivity today while providing plenty of future proofing for deploying future generations of Wi-Fi APs

Multigigabit Network Edge

Gigabit Ethernet Access

To complete the solution, The ICX 7550 Series includes four Gigabit Ethernet models, two with PoE support and two without. These models come in 24- and 48-port versions and can stack with the rest of the ICX 7550 series to offer traditional Gigabit ethernet connectivity for legacy Wi-Fi access points, VoIP phones, printers, laptop and desktop computers

Gigabit Ethernet Access

1/10 GbE Fiber Aggregation

The RUCKUS ICX 7550 fiber models come in 24- and 48-port versions with a mix of 1G and 10G SFP/SFP+ ports offering class leading port density as an entry level 10G aggregation solution for small to mid-size networks. The 24 ports model offers 24x 10GbE ports while the 48 ports offers 36x 1GbE and 12 10GbE SFP/SFP+ ports. For maximum flexibility at the aggregation layer, the ICX 7550 support a broad range of L2/L3 protocols such as RIP, OSFP and BGP.

1/10 GbE Fiber Aggregation

Support for latest generation PoE standards

Latest generation of Wi-Fi access points comes with greater power requirements to support additional IoT radios and scale to a larger number of users. The ICX 7550 Multigigabit models all support 802.3bt with up to 90W power delivery per port as well as a classleading 2000W PoE budget with two power supplies to maximize the supported number of powered devices. These PoE capabilities make the ICX 7550 ideally suited to provide connectivity and power delivery to the latest generation of smart buildings with PoE powered lighting and LED signage.

Perpetual PoE and Fastboot PoE

All ICX 7550 PoE models support perpetual and fastboot PoE. Perpetual PoE keeps PoE devices powered without interruption when the switch is restarted, for example after a major SW upgrade or for any other reason. Fastboot PoE delivers power to PoE devices before the switch operating system has completed its boot sequence.

100 Gigabit Ethernet support for uplink and stacking

To ensure maximum performance and eliminate any network bottleneck considering the class leading multigigabit and 10GbE port density, the 7550 offers up to 3x100 GbE ethernet ports depending on model. Just like the other members of the ICX switch portfolio, the ICX 7550 can use 2 of these 100 GbE ports for stacking over fiber links and over distance up to 10km to maximize deployment flexibility and simplify switch configuration and management
