Multi-Gigabit Wired and Wireless Access

Multi-Gigabit Speeds—Without Cable Plant Retrofit

Ready for more? More powerful, always-connected mobile devices. More bandwidth-hungry, latency-sensitive video and cloud applications. More mobility - to work and play anywhere, and everywhere.

To deliver more, network access infrastructure—from access points to switches—must work together like never before.

The challenge: Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ac), Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) and future wireless technologies can exceed the connection performance of Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) switch ports.

Some vendors cite the only option is to upgrade to 10 GbE at the network edge—at a huge cost, with huge disruption. Ruckus instead offers our customers options that include access points and switches optimized for Wi-Fi 5 or Wi-Fi 6 with 2.5GbE connections or Wi-Fi 6 and future generations with 2.5/5/10GbE connections.

Using Ruckus optimized wireless and wired multi-gigabit solutions, you can get multi-gigabit access capacity over your existing cable plant—at the right price, without the disruption.

Optimized Wi-Fi through Switching

Wi-Fi 6 was built to handle more devices and bandwidth-hungry applications, but a single Wi-Fi 6 client can quickly overtax existing 1 GbE backhaul links on a typical AP. Ruckus multi-gigabit access switches liberate backhaul performance bottlenecks delivering up to 10 Gbps per port. Furthermore, multi-gigabit switches offer up to 90 watts per port and up to 1500 watts of total Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) budget along with uplinks of up to 100 Gbps to future-proof any network.

Use Existing Cabling

Double the capacity per port with existing Cat 5e Ethernet cabling with 2.5 Gbps multi-gigabit APs and ICX Z-Series switches. Double that again, to 5 Gbps, with Cat 6 or 6A installed. Ruckus delivers this with the flagship APs or ICX Z-Series switches with 2.5/5/10 GbE ports.

Balanced Performance and Cost Options

Only Ruckus offers a full range of multigigabit APs and Switches that allow customers to balance cost, performance and Wi-Fi client density. From entry-level to premium switches and Wi-Fi 5 to Wi-Fi 6 Access Points. Pay only for what you need.
