High Performance, 802.11ac Smart Wi-Fi Access Points with Adaptive Antenna Technology
The Ruckus ZoneFlex R310 delivers high-performance and reliable 802.11ac wireless networking at the industry’s most affordable price point.
Unlike any other 802.11ac wireless solution in its class, the ZoneFlex R310 combines patented adaptive antenna technology and automatic interference mitigation to deliver consistent, predictable performance at extended ranges with up to 4dB of statistical BeamFlex gain and up to 10dB of interference mitigation.
Additional performance enhancements to signal gain can be attributed to the chip-based transmit beamforming capability adding 3 dB when associated to a compatible client.
Each ZoneFlex R310 integrates Ruckus-patented BeamFlex, a software-controlled, high gain antenna array that continually forms and directs each 802.11ac packet over the best performing signal path. The ZoneFlex R310 automatically selects channels for highest throughput potential using Ruckus ChannelFly dynamic channel management, adapting to environmental changes. Once deployed, enterprises never have to worry about constant site surveys as the environment changes.
Patented BeamFlex Technology Extends Signal Range, Improves Stability of Client Connections
All ZoneFlex R310 Smart Wi-Fi access points integrate a software-controlled smart antenna array that delivers up to an additional 4 dB of BeamFlex gain and 10 dB of interference mitigation. This allows a 2 to 4x improvement in signal range and a reduction in packet loss from the ability to automatically mitigate interference and avoid obstacles.
Advanced WLAN Applications with Smart/OS
When used with Ruckus controllers, each ZoneFlex R310 supports a wide range of value-added applications such as guest access networking, Dynamic PSK, hotspot authentication, wireless intrusion detection and many more. With Smart/OS, WLANs can be created and mapped to the same or different APs or VLANs. In a centrally managed configuration, the ZoneFlex R310 works with a wide range of authentication servers including Microsoft’s Active Directory, LDAP, and RADIUS.
Flexible Deployment Options
ZoneFlex R310 APs can be deployed as a standalone AP or as part of a centrally managed wireless LAN using Ruckus’s ZoneDirector or SmartZone Smart WLAN controllers. ZoneFlex R310 can be deployed across any L2/L3 network and can bridge traffic onto the local network, tunnel to a central location using L2TP or PPPoE, or route between the WAN and NAT’ed private subnets. When used with the controllers, each ZoneFlex R310 is automatically configured through the network making deployment quick and easy.
Complete Local and Remote Management
Each ZoneFlex R310 can be managed as a standalone AP through a Web-based GUI, using SNMP or through the Ruckus FlexMaster Wi-Fi remote management system. Local management can also be performed using the ZoneDirector or SmartZone Smart WLAN controllers. FlexMaster is a LINUX-based software platform that uses industry-standard protocols to perform bulk configuration, fault detection, monitoring and a wide range of troubleshooting capabilities over a wide area connection. The controllers enable local management and control of APs, adding value-added services such as transmit power control, and guest access networking.
