Ruckus Wireless = Smart Wi-Fi and beyond
The Ruckus Smart Wi-Fi technology redefines what’s possible in wireless network performance with flexibility, reliability and affordability. It’s a combination of innovative features needed to achieve the goal of delivering the most consistent and highest-speed wireless performance possible – anywhere, everywhere, all the time.
Ruckus has an indoor or outdoor wireless access point to fit just about any budget, performance requirement or deployment scenario. Whether you’re challenged with high client density, WiFi-unfriendly building materials or just rising employee or customer expectations, Ruckus WiFi access points are built to satisfy. Every Ruckus AP, from the humblest to the boldest, is packed with patented technologies that go beyond the everyday to ensure consistently great Wi-Fi performance.
Indoor Wi-Fi Access Points
Ruckus WLAN systems brings power and simplicity together for large-scale indoor deployments, combining 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.
Ultra fast and Reliable Wi-Fi Access Points with Adaptive Antenna Technology
Outdoor Wi-Fi 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.
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.
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.
SMARTZONE: Smart Wi-Fi Controllers
The Ruckus SmartZone software platform provides unified software architecture across wireless LAN (WLAN) controllers, for appliance, virtualized and cloud environments offering the ultimate in deployment flexibility. This new Wi-Fi software offers a tremendous level of flexibility: scaling up to 300,000 devices, offering single and multi-tenancy, as well as ‘WiFi-as-you-grow’ — the capability for your network to expand with and adapt to the changing needs of your business.
Ruckus Virtual SmartZone (vSZ)
vSZ is a key building block in enabling service providers of all types to provide a complete managed service to their customers. This can include management of the access points on the customer’s premises as well as all back end systems in their data center. One of the most important back end systems is the WLAN controller. The vSZ is a virtualize version of the industry leading SCG-200 that makes use of Network Functions Virtualization to enable MSPs to offer a totally cloud-based service. vSZ can run on either an open-source KVM or VMware hypervisor.
Service Provider Class WLAN Controller Designed to Run in the Cloud
Along with vSZ, Ruckus offers Virtual SmartZone Data Plane (vSZ-D), a complementary NFV conformant solution to securely aggregate user data traffic, expanding the deployment options within large networks to address growing user data volumes while simplifying network configuration. For major applications (like VoIP or guest access) that require a tunneling approach to data management, vSZ-D is a very cost effective and flexible product to meet these requirements.
ZONEDIRECTOR: Smart Wi-Fi Controllers that support up to 1000 APs
Technical staff love cool networking features but not if it requires two-years of tedious training and massive manuals. Ruckus ZoneDirector software and applications is just that: smart. It delivers a bunch of wireless LAN features not found in any other centrally-managed system.
Ruckus ZoneDirector is widely-considered the most simple and straightforward centralized WLAN software solution there is. Ruckus ZoneDirector runs in our WLAN controller appliances and uses a highly-intuitive Web user interface to make configuration and administration of the entire WLAN a breeze.
