Overview:

If you’re looking to build a mass-scale wired and wireless network and want the peace of mind that comes with purpose-built hardware, look no further. If you need it to be multi-tenant capable to support your Networking-as-a-Service (NaaS) or managed services business, you’ve come to the right place. The SmartZone 300 (SZ300) is a carrier-grade network controller that gives you the flexibility you need to manage complex network architectures—and business models—for networks of practically any scale.

Need to integrate with your own management system or other tools? No problem. Open APIs let 3rd party applications easily invoke SmartZone OS functionality.

Together with Ruckus access points and switches you get scale, control and deployment flexibility and your users get a consistently great experience—fast, reliable and secure.

Offer Great NaaS

The SmartZone 300 enables operators and managed service providers (MSPs) to easily, flexibly and securely deliver Networking-as-a-Service (NaaS).

  • Open APIs enable your applications to invoke just about any function or configuration available in the SmartZone OS Graphical User Interface (GUI) or Command Line Interface (CLI).
  • Sophisticated zone and domain segmentation gives service providers the flexibility to supply non-hosting partners with their own domains, to run different SmartZone OS versions in different zones, and countless other options.
  • An independent, containerized tenant architecture minimizes the risk of degraded end-user experience and enhances data privacy between tenants.

Scale at Will

The SZ300 is built for service-provider scale and availability.

  • A single cluster scales to 30,000 APs, 1,500 switches and 450,000 clients.
  • Geo-redundancy with active/active 3+1 clustering eliminates idle controller capacity and data loss during redundant failover, while minimizing configuration time when nodes are added.
  • Purpose-built hardware with hot-swappable power supplies, 3x fan sets and redundant disk drives further improve uptime.

Deliver a Better Quality of Experience

The SZ300 simplifies workflows and gives IT the tools to ensure a better end-user experience.

  • Visual Connection Diagnostics lets IT troubleshoot client connection problems in real-time, helping to pinpoint the stage at which the failure occurs.
  • Ruckus “super-KPIs” enable IT to more quickly detect and react to potential user experience degradation.
  • SmartZone streaming APIs push in near real-time the full array of Ruckus network data, statistics and alarms to IT’s preferred analytics tool with no fidelity loss and no need to create a firewall pinhole.
  • Easily monitor networks with a customizable interface and view topology maps, network element health, cluster health, traffic analysis, spectrum analysis and more.

Deploy Great Wi-Fi

Ruckus is known for exceptional Wi-Fi performance even under the most challenging network conditions. This means exceptionally happy users.

  • Read this independent report showing how Ruckus APs outperform all other 802.11ac wireless APs.
  • Learn more about how Ruckus BeamFlex adaptive antenna technology creates optimal antenna patterns for each device for better signal quality.
  • Read how Ruckus ChannelFly technology dynamically switches a client to a better channel to mitigate interference.

Features:

Unmatched Scale

A single SZ300 appliance can manage 10K APs and 500 switches, while 3+1 active clustering increases capacity to 30K APs, 1,500 switches and 450K clients.

Ultra-High Availability

The SZ300 protects itself from catastrophic failures with intra-cluster, and inter-cluster failover. Geo-redundancy with active/active clusters deliver higher availability versus traditional hot-standby. Hot-swappable power supplies, 3x fan sets and redundant disk drives further improve uptime.

Multi-tier Managed Services

Multi-tenancy, domain segmentation and containerization enable secure delivery of managed network services in complex, multi-tier business models across multiple geographies, including MVNO models.

Comprehensive Experience Management

Visual Connection Diagnostics speeds and simplifies troubleshooting and client problem resolution while unique “super-KPIs” enable IT to more quickly detect and react to potential user experience degradation.

Multi-variate, Role-based Policies

Optional Ruckus Cloudpath integration lets IT to create rich location-, device- and user-based policy rules, enabling network segmentation based on real security and policy needs rather than on a one-size-fits-all approach.

High-Fidelity Streaming Data

The SmartZone streaming API pushes in near real-time the full array of Ruckus network data, statistics and alarms to IT’s preferred analytics tool with no fidelity loss and no need to create a firewall pinhole, enabling IT to effectively respond in the event of rapidly deteriorating network conditions.

Advanced Features

The SmartZone OS advanced feature set includes rogue AP detection and mitigation, adaptive band balancing, load balancing, airtime fairness, hotspot and guest services, capacity-based admission control, and more.
