Entry-Level Access Switch Family Delivers Unprecedented Performance and Features in ITs Class

The RUCKUS ICX 7150 family of stackable switches delivers the performance, flexibility, and scalability required for enterprise access deployment, raising the bar with non-blocking performance and up to 8x10 GbE ports for uplinks or stacking. It offers seamless interoperability with RUCKUS wireless products to deliver unified wired and wireless network access. In addition, RUCKUS Multigigabit Ethernet technology offers bandwidth speeds needed to optimize performance of the latest generation high performance wireless access points and edge devices, over standard Ethernet cables.

The RUCKUS ICX 7150 family of switches are available in three formats:

RUCKUS ICX 7150 Switches

RUCKUS ICX 7150 Switches

The standard RUCKUS ICX 7150 switches are available in 24-, and 48-port 10/100/1000 Mbps models with four 1/10 GbE dual-purpose uplink/stacking ports. These switches are available with or without PoE+ power. Silent operation is available for out-of-closet environments.

RUCKUS ICX 7150 Z-Series Switches

RUCKUS ICX 7150 Z-Series Switches

The RUCKUS ICX 7150-48ZP 48-port switch adds higher performance, greater resiliency and increased PoE power. The switch offers Multigigabit technology (IEEE 802.3bz) to match the highest performing 802.11ac Wave 2 wireless access points available, with dual redundant, hot-swappable power supplies and fans, and up to 8x10 GbE uplink/stacking ports.

The switch offers 16 Multigigabit (100Mbps/1Gbps/2.5Gbps) ports, each with Power-over-HDBaseT (PoH) up to 90 watts, plus 32 10/100/1000 Mbps ports with PoE+. With a maximum PoE budget of 1480 watts, this switch delivers the power, and performance, to drive PoE+ power to all 48 ports.

RUCKUS ICX 7150 Compact Switches

RUCKUS ICX 7150 Compact Switches

The RUCKUS ICX 7150-C12P compact 12-port stackable switch features a fanless design to operate silently in out-of-closet environments such as offices, classrooms, and retail spaces. It offers PoE+ on all 12 ports to drive devices such as wireless APs, VoIP phones, lighting fixtures or surveillance cameras. With 2x1/10 GbE uplink/ stacking ports, the ICX 7150-C12 delivers high performance in a small package.

Stacking Across the ICX 7150 Family

RUCKUS stacking technology2 makes it possible to stack up to twelve RUCKUS ICX 7150 switches into a single logical switch. This allows the RUCKUS ICX 7150 to deliver a class-leading 480 Gbps of aggregated stacking bandwidth and offer simple and robust expandability for future growth. Stacking is supported across the ICX 7150 family and all ICX 7150 models including the ICX 7150 compact switch and the ICX 7150-48ZP can be mixed within the same stack. This stacked switch has only a single IP address that simplifies management and offers transparent forwarding across up to 600×1 GbE ports or up to 192×2.5 GbE ports, and up to 96×10 GbE ports. When new switches join the stack, they automatically inherit the stack’s existing configuration file, enabling a plug-and-play network expansion.

Because the ICX 7150-48ZP switch has twice as many uplink ports, when it is added to a stack of other ICX 7150 switch models, the effective bandwidth of all the switches is doubled. By designing the stack this way, all four of the 10GbE ports on the ICX 7150 switches can be used for stacking (rather than having to split the four ports between stacking and uplinks), and leveraging four of the 10GbE ports on the ICX 7150-48ZP for stacking and the other four 10GbE ports can be used for uplinks.

Stacking Across the ICX 7150 Family

Enterprise-Class Availability

The RUCKUS ICX 7150 Switches help deliver continuous availability to optimize the user experience. RUCKUS stacking technology provides high availability by performing real-time state synchronization across the stack and transferring switch management control from the master stack controller to the standby controller if the master stack controller experiences a failure. When hot-inserting or hot-removing a stack member to increase capacity or perform service upgrade, traffic flows will not experience interruption.

In addition to stack-level high availability, RUCKUS ICX 7150 Switches also support stack level ISSU (In Service Software Upgrade), a unique capability that allows the user to perform software upgrades to a RUCKUS ICX 7150 stack without service interruption. Taking highavailability and reliability even further, the RUCKUS ICX 7150 Z-Series switch offers redundant hot swappable load sharing power supplies and up to 2 hot swappable fans.

Silent Operation

The RUCKUS ICX 7150-C12P compact switch, along with the RUCKUS ICX 7150-24 and the ICX 7150-48 switches, feature a fanless design that enables it to operate silently. The RUCKUS ICX 7150-24P and the ICX 7150-48P offer a “silent mode” configuration option, enabling these switches to operate with the fan disabled while providing a PoE budget of 150 watts. This Ruckusexclusive feature enables users in hospitality, education, healthcare, and retail industries to deploy these switches outside of the wiring closet without disrupting the work environment.

Multigigabit Ethernet Support

The RUCKUS ICX 7150-48ZP Switch raises the bar for entry-level switches even further with 16x IEEE 802.3bz compliant 2.5 GbE ports, up to 8×10 GbE uplink ports, dual redundant load sharing power supplies and class-leading stacking density with up to 12 switches per stack. It stacks with all other members of the ICX 7150 family allowing organizations to buy what they need now and easily scale as the need for Multigigabit support emerges. It is designed to work seamlessly with RUCKUS wireless access points to deliver unified wired and wireless network access.

Power Next-Generation Edge Devices

All ICX 7150 family members offer PoE options. The compact 12 port switch delivers PoE+ on all ports with a 124W PoE budget. The 24- and 48-port ICX 7150 switches offer up to 740W of PoE+ power and the ICX 7150 Z-Series offers an industry leading 1480W PoE budget when equipped with 2 power supplies. In addition to supporting PoE and PoE+, the RUCKUS ICX 7150 Z-Series also offers Power over HDBaseT (PoH). This new, high power HDBT standard delivers up to 90 watts per port through a standard Ethernet cable, simplifying the wiring of next-generation Ethernet-connected devices such as high-performance wireless APs, large HD displays, video surveillance equipment, and VDI thin terminals, enabling data and power to be carried by a single Ethernet wire. The PoE, PoE+ and PoH capabilities reduce the number of required power receptacles and power adapters while increasing reliability and wiring flexibility.

With a 1,480-watt power budget per switch (with two power supplies), the RUCKUS ICX 7150 48ZP model can supply Class 4 PoE+ power (30 watts) to every port and PoH power (90 watts) on 16 dedicated Multigigabit ports.
