Ruckus’ Highest Capacity, Highest Performing Four-Stream 802.11ac AP

The ZoneFlex R710 combines Ruckus patented technologies and best-in-class design with the next generation of 802.11ac features to deliver industry-leading Wi-Fi performance and reliability.

Featuring BeamFlex+ adaptive antenna technology, the ZoneFlex R710 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 800 Mbps (2.4GHz) and 1733 Mbps (5GHz), the ZoneFlex R710 supports the highest available throughput for Wi-Fi clients. 802.11ac Multi-User MIMO (MU-MIMO) support allows the R710 to simultane - ously transmit to multiple client devices, drastically improving airtime efficiency, overall throughput, and availability.

The ZoneFlex R710 is backward compatible with all existing Wi-Fi clients, and can function either as a standalone AP or as part of centrally-managed Wireless LAN.

ZoneFlex R710 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 delivers picture perfect HD-quality IP video while supporting VoIP and data applications that have stringent quality of service requirements.

Patented BeamFlex+ technology extends signal range, improves stability of client connections

The ZoneFlex R710 integrates patented software-controlled adaptive antennas that delivers additional signal gain per radio chain. As BeamFlex+ adapts to client locations and antenna polarity, the smart antenna technology optimizes the RF energy toward client on a per packet basis. This allows for substantial performance improvement and a reduction in packet loss from the ability to automatically mitigate interference and obstacles. BeamFlex+ with PD-MRC or polarization diversity ensures the R710 listens in all polarizations simultaneously. This results in significant receive signal gain from mobile devices with weak transmitters.

Multi-User MIMO (MU-MIMO)

802.11ac MU-MIMO allows the ZoneFlex R710 to transmit multiple spatial streams to multiple client devices simultaneously, increasing the total throughput and capacity of the wireless network. The ZoneFlex R710 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.

Advanced WLAN applications

When used with the Ruckus Smart WLAN management systems, the ZoneFlex R710 supports a wide range of value-added applications such as guest networking, Dynamic PSK, hotspot authentication, wireless intrusion prevention and many more. WLANs can also be grouped and shared by specific APs. In a centrally managed configuration, the ZoneFlex R710 works with various authentication servers including AD, LDAP, and RADIUS.
