Re-Architecting Enterprise Networks With High-performance Stackable SwitchesIn recent years the evolution of packet processor and CPU technology, the heart of an Ethernet switch, has allowed unprecedented levels of performance and functionality to be incorporated into fixed form factor (FFF) switches which were previously only available to much larger and more costly chassis-based systems. This situation was highlighted by Gartner analyst Andrew Lerner in his blog post on the topic of fixed form factor switching in the data center, which applies equally well to campus edge networks, concludes “the emergence of high-density fixed form factor switches can reduce or eliminate the need for costlier, oversized chassis-based switches in the data center. The move toward FFF switches will help network managers deliver higher-performance networks and reduce footprint, power, cooling and TCO.”
The Power Of Ruckus Campus Fabric In The Data CenterSmall to mid-sized organizations often don’t have the budgets and the skillsets to support a sophisticated data center infrastructure. Ruckus ICX switching’s innovative technologies enable the deployment of a modern high performance data center networking infrastructure at lower cost without specialized data center networking experience.
Transforming The Network With Ruckus Campus FabricTraditional Campus Architectures Struggle to Meet Today’s Application Requirements For the past two decades, campus network design has seen little innovation, as market leaders have promoted the status quo with no significant investments beyond incremental “speeds and feeds” enhancements. Years of incremental technology upgrades have turned traditional legacy campus networks, into a complex and fragmented patchwork of network devices
Energy Efficiency in Campus NetworksDuring the latter decades of the 20th century the Information Technology (IT) industry grew alongside traditional industries and has become one of the major consumers of electricity and in some areas, where large corporate offices and data centres are located, demand has increased exponentially. Despite increases in efficiency the growth of IT has meant that power consumption has significantly increased over several decades and the pressure to reduce electricity usage and adopt strategies that indirectly cut carbon emissions has never been greater.
Ruckus ICX Switches in the DatacenterIT managers overseeing networks at smaller organizations, need solutions that simplify and automate the deployment and management of their networks. These organizations are better served by network products that can be operated without relying on costly network experts.
