802.11ac High Performance Mid-Range 3x3:3 Smart WiFi Access Points with Adaptive Antenna Technology

The RUCKUS ZoneFlex R600 delivers high-performance and reliable 802.11ac wireless networking at a competitive price point for medium density venues such as in K-12 or education.

The ZoneFlex R600 combines patented adaptive antenna technology and automatic interference mitigation to deliver consistent, predictable performance at extended ranges with up to an additional 6dB of BeamFlex gain on top of the physical antenna gain and up to 15dB of interference mitigation.

The R600 is ideal for wireless networks servicing mobile devices with dual-polarized antennas that adapt in real time to maximize performance for the mobile enterprise.

Performance is further enhanced as the ZoneFlex R600 integrates Ruckus’ patented BeamFlex, a software-controlled, high gain adaptive antenna technology. The ZoneFlex R600 automatically selects channels for highest throughput potential using RUCKUS ChannelFly dynamic channel management, adapting to environmental changes.

A sleek and low-profile design, the ZoneFlex R600 was purpose-built for smallmedium enterprises requiring reliable high speed client connectivity. It is ideal for a variety of medium density enterprise and hotspot environments including SMB’s such as independent hotels, local retailers and non-franchise restaurants.

Patented Beamflex technology extends signal range, improves stability of client connections

All ZoneFlex R600 Wi-Fi access points integrate a softwarecontrolled smart antenna with PD-MRC (polarization diversity) that delivers up to an additional 6dB of BeamFlex gain and 15dB 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 R600 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 R600 works with a wide range of authentication servers including Microsoft’s Active Directory, and AAA/RADIUS.

RuckusFlexible Deployment Options

RUCKUS 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.

Complete Local and Remote ManagementComplete Local and Remote Management

Each ZoneFlex R600 can be managed as a standalone AP through a Web-based GUI, using SNMP or through the RUCKUS SCI or FlexMaster. Local management can also be performed using Ruckus’ Smart WLAN controllers. FlexMaster is a LINUX-based software platform that uses industry standard protocols to perform bulk configuration, fault detection, monitoring and a wide range of trouble-shooting capabilities over a wire area connection. The controllers enable local management and control of APs, adding value-added services such as transmit power control and guest networking.
