Ruckus Debuts New Multigigabit Access Products

Ruckus access point

Ruckus Networks (acquired by CommScope earlier this year) has introduced two new multigigabit access products. The Ruckus R750 Wi-Fi 6 access point (AP) and ICX 7150-C10ZP switch are designed to "address the capacity crunch caused by the transition to digital learning," according to a news announcement. Both are on display this week at ISTE 2019 in Philadelphia.

The R750 Access Point is a dual-band, 4x4:4 (5GHz) + 4x4:4 (2.4GHz) device with embedded IoT radios (BLE, Zigbee) and 2.5GbE support. It is optimized for high client-density classroom environments and supports the latest WPA3 WiFi security standard, according to the company.

The ICX 7150-C10ZP Access Switch is a 10-port compact, fanless switch with 1, 2.5, 5 and 10GbE access ports. Four of the ports are PoE-enabled with up to 90W. The device can be stacked with other ICX 7150-family switches within a single wiring closet or across closets or classrooms.

Other products in the Ruckus converged multigigabit network portfolio include:

  • Ruckus SmartZone Network Controller, which manages Ruckus APs and switches through a single interface, available as a physical or virtual converged management appliance; and
  • Ruckus IoT Controller, a virtual controller that works with the Ruckus SmartZone network controller to provide connectivity, device and security management functions for non-WiFi devices.
