Overview:

Ruckus’ Highest Capacity, Highest Performing Four-stream 802.11ac Wave 2 AP

Ruckus R710 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.

Featuring BeamFlex+ adaptive antenna technology, the ZoneFlex R710 Unleashed offers a substantial increase in performance and range by optimizing antenna coverage on a per client, per transmission basis. BeamFlex+ additionally mitigates co-channel interference by directing Wi-Fi signals where they are needed instead of towards neighboring access points. The R710’s BeamFlex+ adaptive antenna system is also equipped with dual polarization antennas, allowing the access point to adapt to the physical orientation of client devices and maximize uplink performance.

With throughput capacities of 800Mbps (2.4GHz) and 1733Mbps (5GHz), the ZoneFlex R710 Unleashed supports the highest available throughput for Wi-Fi clients. 802.11ac Multi-User MIMO (MU-MIMO) support allows the R710 Unleashed to simultaneously transmit to multiple client devices, drastically improving airtime efficiency, overall throughput, and availability.

ZoneFlex R710 Unleashed is purpose-built for high-capacity, high performance and interference-laden environments such as schools, universities, public venues, hotels, and conference centers. The perfect choice for data-intensive streaming multimedia applications, the ZoneFlex R710 Unleashed delivers picture perfect HD-quality IP video while supporting VoIP and data applications that have stringent quality of service requirements.

The ZoneFlex R710 Unleashed is backward compatible with all existing Wi-Fi clients, and is based on a highly resilient architecture.

Multi-User MIMO (MU-MIMO)

802.11ac MU-MIMO allows the ZoneFlex R710 Unleashed to transmit multiple spatial streams to multiple client devices simultaneously, increasing the total throughput and capacity of the wireless network. The ZoneFlex R710 Unleashed is able to provide up to three clients each their own dedicated full-bandwidth channel using an MU-MIMO technique known as spatial reuse. This capability enables several benefits.

Efficient use of available spectrum effectively multiplies the total capacity of a network, allowing it to meet the increasing data demand driven by the proliferation of mobile Wi-Fi clients and data-hungry applications and uses such as high-definition video streaming. Additionally, MU-MIMO does not require client devices to time-share connections with other clients on the network as in legacy Wi-Fi, which means each device experiences less wait time and makes the network more responsive overall. Even legacy clients benefit from MU-MIMO on the wireless network, because substantially increased efficiency for MU clients leaves the network with more free time and capacity by supporting multiple users.
