What challenges do quickly increasing power requirements and performance needs present to partners?

We don't want to lose sight of some of the challenges our partners have. How do they deploy networks? How do they make it easy to use? How do they make it operationally a low cost to support, manage and maintain? We have extended the capabilities of this switch where we're adding features such as ISSU and manageability. We have a capability within the Ruckus portfolio that allows you do deploy multiple switches in collapsed architecture and manage them like a single device. The 7650 can act both as an edge switch, as well as a fabric controller, which adds a lot of flexibility for our partners to deploy fabrics of different sizes based on the size of the customer they're working with. A small hospitality property may go with the 7650 controller-based fabric design while a larger property may use one of our existing controllers at a higher scale, like the 7750 as the controller for the fabric.
