Core Ethernet Switches
ICX Core switches
Traditional enterprise networks were architected to utilize chassis systems to deliver reliable, high-speed, and scalable routing capabilities to the campus. With recent advances in network processors these capabilities can be packaged into a more flexible stackable switch design. This opens the door to new network architectures where the core can be distributed across the campus, deploying ports and switching capacity directly where they are needed.
RUCKUS core Switches are designed to meet the most demanding enterprise requirements. they deliver non-blocking line-rate performance on all ports concurrently, with a switching capacity up to 6.4 Tbps, supporting the next generation Ethernet speeds with 10/25 Gigabit Ethernet at the aggregation and 40/100 Gigabit Ethernet to meet high volume of traffic driving from the edge into the core. They also support a rich array of routing protocols and delivers a range of high-availability hardware and software features.
Find the right switch for your network. ICX switches work seamlessly with RUCKUS Wi-Fi access points and RUCKUS SmartZone network controllers to deliver the highest performance and most cost-effective solutions on the market today.

Re-architecting enterprise networks with high-performance stackable switches.
White Paper: Re-Architecting Enterprise Networks With High-performance Stackable SwitchesFixed form factor switches, often referred to as “pizza boxes” or “stackables”, offer some compelling advantages over their chassis-based counterparts which have not been evolving at the same pace. A stackable solution offers true pay-as-you-grow economics not just in terms of acquisition costs but also ongoing support and power consumption resulting in a significantly lower Total Cost of Ownership.
