Ruckus Networks Eases Hotel Fiber Deployments While Enabling New IoT SolutionsSource: Business Wire
Expands portfolio to include fiber-to-the-room, and IoT partnerships to deliver applications for hotel safety, operational efficiency and enhanced guest experience
Hotel properties come in many sizes—from single stand-alone buildings to large resorts spread across acres. The new Fiber Backpack allows for direct integration of Ruckus H510 in-room access points onto the fiber backbone for a clean, secure installation leveraging the scale, speed and efficiency of fiber-to-the-room architecture. The new product can utilize a wide range of interoperable fiber transceivers with support for single- or multi-mode, enabled by the portfolio of Ruckus ICX fiber switches, of which the Ruckus ICX 7150-24F is the latest addition.
Hotels are also looking to vendors to deliver network solutions that
support multiple applications, reduce costs, improve reliability and
protect investments. To meet these requirements, Ruckus is partnering
with IoT ecosystem vendors such as ASSA
ABLOY Global Solutions, AVSystem,
“In the global hospitality industry, interoperability between multiple
applications and vendors is key to helping hotels plan for the future,
where higher guest and operations bandwidth consumption present real
challenges for existing hotel networks,” said
About the Ruckus Fiber Backpack
The Ruckus Fiber Backpack is a purpose-built, field-installable, fiber-to-Ethernet media converter accessory that provides a pluggable fiber interface for industry-leading Ruckus H510 wall-mounted APs. It also provides Power over Ethernet (PoE) for the associated H510 AP and supports both passive optical networking (PON) and Active Ethernet SFP modules. When paired with Ruckus fiber switches, such as the ICX 7150-24F, the Fiber Backpack enables network designers to easily deploy, standardize and cost-optimize end-to-end fiber solutions.
About the ICX 7150-24F and ICX 7150-C08P Switches
The Ruckus ICX 7150-24F is an entry-level, 24xSFP enterprise switch with four 10GbE SFP+ ports for uplinks and stacking. The fiber switch can be stacked up to 12 units with other members of the ICX 7150 family. The ICX 7150-C08P is an 8-port 10/100/1000 Mbps compact switch with GbE uplink ports, and full PoE/PoE+ support. The compact switch is fanless, providing silent operation for use in locations such as hospitality suites and MDUs. Both switches are covered by the Ruckus limited lifetime warranty and can be managed by the Ruckus SmartZone Network Controller.
The new products will be available in early Q3 2019 through Ruckus channel partners.
