Digital transformation, while sometimes referred to in
futuristic terms, is sweeping through federal agencies and rolling over network
infrastructure with billions of mobile devices and internet-connected sensors.
Civilian and military agencies alike are gobbling bandwidth and taxing the
network core with the proliferation of mobile and IoT, as well as cloud capabilities
enabling everything from data analytics to artificial intelligence. Federal expenditures on IoT alone is expected
to hit $3 billion in fiscal 2018, according to an Immix Group Market
As organizations plan for the next big thing in digital transformation, they often overlook the core component – the networks – until connectivity becomes a problem. That was the thinking behind the Ruckus ICX 7850, the latest offering in Ruckus’ extensive switch lineup, which delivers 100 GbE from edge to core. The ICX 7850 uses a high-density, secure and scalable platform to support 10-, 25-, 50- and 100-GbE using existing customer investments in fiber to allow for growth. As agencies increasingly push connectivity to the edge, the ICX 7850 is the latest edge-to-core solution with high-end routing and security capabilities.
switches have been used by federal agencies for two decades, so why roll out a
new version? It’s because the exponential growth that agencies are planning for
puts added demand on the network. With 6.4 Tbps, the ICX 7850 has more than
three times the switching capacity of our core switch, the ICX 7750, eliminating bottlenecks between network
layers and ensuring a smooth user experience in high-density wireless
This new model includes the ability to mix and match ICX
switches to build highly converged networks that simplify deployment and
management, improve operational efficiency, and provide maximum scalability.
Solutions for network growth don’t have
to be complex or expensive. What federal agencies need is the ability to grow
and transform digitally without disruption. In this regard, ICX 7850 is the
answer for next-generation wireless, no matter when, where or how it’s being
