ZoneFlex Indoor Access Points
Ultra-fast and Reliable Smart WiFi Access Points with Adaptive Antenna Technology
In the world of wireless LANs (WLANs), power and simplicity are like oil and water — they’ve just never mixed — until now.
Our Ruckus WLAN systems brings power and simplicity together for large-scale indoor deployments — along with all the requisite capabilities demanded:
Advanced Wi-Fi security
Robust WLAN management
What’s more, Ruckus WLAN solutions combine one of the best centrally managed WLANs with jaw-dropping advances in intelligent RF routing and Smart WiFi meshing. The result? One of the best WLAN products and technology that money can buy. Here are more bullets to mull over:
Patented Smart Wi-Fi antenna array technology: BeamFlex, which provides extended range and adaptive signal steering, for the most reliable WiFi, period
Predictive real-time capacity channel selection – ChannelFly is one of the industry’s most effective approach to channel selection resulting in up to 50 percent better performance
Optimum signal path selection, interference mitigation, and auto RF management, for a consistent user experience
Smart Mesh Networking to eliminate the costly, cumbersome task of pulling Ethernet cable wherever you want access points
State-of-the-art security — from 802.1x support to Dynamic Pre-Shared Keys, all the latest link layer encryption and authentication mechanisms you’d expect but made simple to administer and manage
High-performance dual-band 802.11ac Wave 2 access points (meshed or wired) that deliver consistently high-performance at range to new 802.11ac and legacy 802.11a/b/g/n clients
Better coverage with fewer access points
Configuration in minutes and installation in hours, without cumbersome site surveys or tedious network setup
Smart Wi-Fi access points that can be flexibly deployed with or without a Smart WLAN controller
Controller stays out of the data path of wireless LAN clients and handles management traffic only
Smart Wi-Fi access points handle all control traffic and probe requests/responses, as well as the data path between wireless clients
ZoneFlex Outdoor Access Points
ZoneFlex outdoor access points uniquely combine adaptive antenna technology and adaptive meshing to enable a new level of outdoor performance at a low cost. Built to withstand the harshest of outdoor conditions, they’re designed with the flexibility to function as standalone APs or as managed devices, using the same wireless controller as their indoor Smart WiFi counterparts. If no Ethernet cabling is available, the outdoor AP meshes seamlessly with the indoor access points. Unprecedented 802.11ac Wave 2 performance enables extremely fast connections up to 1733 Mbps (5 GHz) and 800 Mbps (2.4 GHz). Unlike other outdoor Wi-Fi device today, it provides advanced interference mitigation to ensure the highest resilience for both client and inter-node mesh connections.
ZoneFlex outdoor access points are ideal for hotels and resorts covering pool areas, for schools and stadiums covering sports facilities, and for general enterprises covering shipping docks and other outdoor areas where Ethernet cabling is not possible. Service providers can easily extend branded broadband services, offload bulky data traffic from congested 3G networks, deploy multimedia hotspots, or offer wireless DSL services where fixed line access is limited, including converting outdoor fiber strand mount or underground into wireless with the 7762 fiber node accessory. Customers now have a simple-to-use Smart WiFi environment that provides extended range, simple deployment, reliable connectivity and consistent performance at range outdoors. Now THAT’S interesting.
