Patented BeamFlex™ Technology Extends Signal Range, Improves Stability of Client Connections
All ZoneFlex R300 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/OSAdvanced WLAN Applications with Smart/OS
When used with the Ruckus ZoneDirector Smart WLAN controller, each ZoneFlex R300 supports a wide range of value-added applications such as guest 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 R300 works with a wide range of authentication servers including Microsoft’s Active Directory, LDAP, and RADIUS.
Flexible Deployment Options
ZoneFlex R300 APs can be deployed as a standalone AP or as part of a centrally managed wireless LAN using ZoneDirec- tor Smart WLAN controllers. ZoneFlex R300 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 ZoneDirector, each ZoneFlex R300 is automatically configured through the network making deployment quick and easy.
Complete Local and Remote Management
Each ZoneFlex R300 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 Smart WLAN controller. 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 ZoneDirector enables local management and control of APs, adding value-added services such as transmit power control, and guest networking.
