Overview:

High Performance, 802.11ac Mid-Range Smart Wi-Fi Access Points with Adaptive Antenna Technology

Ruckus R500 Unleashed enables controller-less Wi-Fi architecture for small business environments with superior performance, lower costs and simplified management. Separate controllers and access point licenses are no longer needed, significantly reducing upfront costs. Set-up is also easy, thanks to a simplified web interface that helps businesses configure Wi-Fi in just 60 seconds.

The R500 Unleashed is ideal for wireless networks servicing mobile devices with dual-polarized antennas that adapt in real time to hand-held device movement and rotation ensuring consistent performance.

Each ZoneFlex R500 Unleashed integrates Ruckus-patented BeamFlex, a softwarecontrolled, high gain antenna array that continually forms and directs each Wi-Fi packet over the best performing signal path. The ZoneFlex R500 Unleashed 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.

A sleek and low-profile design, the ZoneFlex R500 Unleashed was purpose-built for small-medium enterprises requiring reliable high speed client connectivity. It is ideal for a variety of medium density enterprise and hotspot environments including SMBs, venues, local retailers and non-franchise restaurants.

Patented BeamFlex+ Technology Extends Signal Range, Improves Stability of Client Connections

All ZoneFlex R500 Smart Wi-Fi access points integrate a software-controlled smart antenna with PD-MRC (polarization diversity) that delivers up to an additional 6 dB of BeamFlex gain and 15 dB of interference mitigation. This is especially beneficial to enhance the performance of mobile devices which are constantly in motion and changing orientation.

Advanced WLAN Applications

Each ZoneFlex R500 Unleashed supports a wide range of value-added applications such as guest networking, Dynamic PSK, hotspot authentication, wireless intrusion detection and many more. In a controller-less configuration, the ZoneFlex R500 Unleashed works with a wide range of authentication servers including Microsoft’s Active Directory, and AAA/RADIUS.

Flexible Migration Options

Ruckus Unleashed is custom-designed to help small business owners grow their business, deliver an excellent customer experience and manage costs while supporting Wi-Fi and a variety of mobile devices with minimal IT staff. Unleashed access points have built-in controller capabilities, including user access controls, guest networking functions, advanced Wi-Fi security and traffic management. As businesses grow to multiple sites or a larger scale deployment, Ruckus offers an easy migration path to controllerbased Wi-Fi, using the same Wi-Fi access points.

Complete Local and Remote Management

ZoneFlex R500 Unleashed can be securely managed from anywhere at anytime using any browser on any device.

Enterprise-grade features

Ruckus Unleashed APs and switches come loaded with enterprise-grade features to customize, optimize and secure your Wi-Fi networks and deliver great user experiences. Key features are highlighted below.

FEATURE

BENEFIT

Guest Services

Give guests secure, high-performance Wi-Fi access, while isolating their traffic from the private business network easily. Customize your guest Wi-Fi portal with your logo, brand and messages. Provide Wi-Fi access through Guest Passes, or have guests authenticate using social media accounts such as Facebook to eliminate the hassle (and security holes) of sharing
Wi-Fi passwords.

Application Visibility and Control

Monitor the network usage patterns of over 2,200 applications with Deep Packet Inspection, and find out which ones are consuming the most resources. You can define application-specific access rules (such as limiting access to YouTube or social media), or even limit Wi-Fi speeds for specific applications and/or SSIDs.

Resiliency

Continue to access printers and other network devices even if internet connectivity fails. Users stay connected to the Wi-Fi network even if one or several APs fail for any reason, as long as at least one AP in the network is online.

Security

Use DPSK to eliminate the risks of shared passwords and lock down access to the Wi-Fi network—without complex configurations. In addition, secure your network and protect your clients with WPA encryption, client isolation and 802.1x for RADIUS and Active Directory.

Zero Touch Mesh

Add new Unleashed APs to the existing network securely over the air. Dramatically speed up and simplify the installation of an Unleashed network.

Multiple Language Support

Create and manage your Wi-Fi network in your own language. Ruckus Unleashed currently supports 13 languages.

URL Filtering

Define web access rules for your network users. Protect your network from malware and phishing sites.

Social Login

With the built-in Social Login feature, you can sign into the Unleashed mobile app using your Gmail, Facebook or Twitter account, and link your Unleashed Wi-Fi network. From that point on, you can manage your Unleashed
network from anywhere in the world using your social login.

Remote Management

Need a quick answer or help troubleshooting a network issue? Just tap the “Invite for Remote Management” option on the mobile app, and send a text message or email with a link containing all the Unleashed network information  to an expert.

AP Groups

Apply multiple configuration profiles to different groups of APs.

Zero IT

Easily onboard customers or employees onto your Wi-Fi network through a simple, self-service portal.

SSID Rate-Limiting

If you want to limit data speeds for a particular group of users (such as guest users), you can create a separate SSID with a data rate “speed limit” that you define.
