The Ruckus Wireless ZoneFlex Centrally Managed Wireless LAN System
DOWNLOAD THE ZONEFLEX FAMILY OVERVIEW DATA SHEET

The Ruckus ZoneFlex family of wireless LAN equipment is centrally managed by a Ruckus ZoneDirector management server appliance. The ZoneDirector provides configuration, monitoring and control of your Ruckus Wireless ZoneFlex network. All ZoneDirector models run the same management and control software so the same comprehensive feature set is available no matter which model you need. ZoneDirectors differ only in the number of access points they support (with larger ZoneDirector models also supporting redundant fail-over operation).

For a complete perspective on the Ruckus ZoneFlex family of centrally managed, secure Wi-Fi products and a side-by-side comparison, please Download the ZoneFlex Family Overview Data Sheet

You're encouraged to download the individual data sheets for ZoneDirector appliances and ZoneFlex access points to see representative user interface screen images, read about deployment options and get a perspective on the broad set of features and capabilities you'll find with Ruckus Wireless.

ZoneFlex R700 Dual-Band Indoor 802.11ac Access Point
DOWNLOAD THE ZONEFLEX R700 DATA SHEET

The Ruckus ZoneFlex R700 improves on the R600 with a faster processor and more advanced antenna array. Any enterprise-grade AP can give high throughput in a clean environment with few client devices. The R700 is optimally suited for very high-density environments like airports, stadiums, and conference centers. In these environments, the huge amount of interference and client devices can overwhelm the capabilities of an AP, reducing performance. The R700 has the muscle to handle these high-demand environments without a reduction in top-end performance. The R700 is a three-stream 802.11ac device. Data rates top out at 600 Mbps with typical 40 MHz channels, or 1300 Mbps with 80 MHz channels.

  • Dual-band concurrent operation (2.4 GHz / 5 GHz)
  • BeamFlex adaptive antenna array provides up to an additional 6 dB of antenna gain and 15 dB of interference mitigation.
  • Advanced BeamFlex antenna array provides 3000+ unique antenna patterns
  • Best-in-class receive sensitivity of < -99 dBm
  • Router mode with NAT and DHCP services for remote office operation. (Available only in standalone mode.)
  • Advanced QoS packet classification and automatic prioritization for latency-sensitive traffic.

The Ruckus ZoneDirector Centralized Management Appliance
DOWNLOAD THE ZONEDIRECTOR OVERVIEW DATA SHEET

The ZoneDirector is a server appliance the provides centralized management and control of your Ruckus ZoneFlex network. ZoneFlex access points automatically locate and connect to the ZoneDirector (even across multiple IP subnets!) and no individual configuration or management of any access point is required. The same Ruckus Smart/OS management software runs on all ZoneDirector models - they differ only in the number of ZoneFlex access points they support.

DOWNLOAD THE RUCKUS SMART/OS DATA SHEET

The ZoneDirector includes location mapping to show you where users are connecting to the network and to allow the ZoneDirector to optimize channel and power settings. Multiple SSIDs and VLANS are configured and each can have its own authentication and usage policies allowing you to create a system that provides the right capacity and the right capabilities for different user groups (i.e. employees, visitors, PDA-users, 802.11n clients).

  • User authentication and control is managed through the ZoneDirector but user traffic passes directly from the ZoneFlex access point to the network without having to be tunneled back to the ZoneDirector improving overall system performance and eliminating system complexity
  • Real-time connectivity mapping using building floorplans or outdoor maps including mesh backhaul links when Smart Mesh is part of the network design
  • SpeedFlex software allows real-time throughput testing of individual user's devices minimizing support headaches. A user can be shown that their wireless connection is performing properly so that troubleshooting efforts can be focused elsewhere.
  • Fully scalable architecture and the management of multiple ZoneDirectors can be aggregated using FlexMaster software (see description below).
  • Automatic device discovery including layer 2 broadcast, DHCP Option 43, DNS and UPnP to eliminate initial manual configuration of access points
  • Connect802 can be allowed to access your ZoneDirectors remotely through the Internet to provide hands-on technical support
