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

The RUCKUS ZoneFlex R500 delivers high-performance and reliable 802.11ac wireless networking at a competitive price point.

Unlike any other 802.11ac wireless solution in its class, the ZoneFlex R500 combines patented adaptive antenna technology and automatic interference mitigation to deliver consistent, predictable performance at extended ranges with up to an additional 4dB of BeamFlex gain on top of the physical antenna gain and up to 10dB of interference mitigation.

The R500 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 integrates Ruckus-patented BeamFlex, a software-controlled, high gain antenna array that continually forms and directs each Wi-Fi packet over the best performing signal path. The ZoneFlex R500 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 was purposebuilt for enterprises requiring reliable high speed client connectivity. It is ideal for a variety of medium density enterprise and hotspot environments including SMBs, hotels, schools, retail outlets, and branch offices.

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 4 dB of BeamFlex gain and 10 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 with Smart/OS

When used with the RUCKUS Smart WLAN controllers, each ZoneFlex R500 supports a wide range of value-added applications such as guest networking, Dynamic PSK, hotspot authentication, wireless intrusion detection and many more. With Smart/OS, WLANs can be created and mapped to the same or different APs or VLANs. In a centrally managed configuration, the ZoneFlex R500 works with a wide range of authentication servers including Microsoft’s Active Directory, LDAP, and RADIUS.

Flexible Deployment Options

ZoneFlex R500 APs can be deployed as a standalone AP or as part of a centrally managed wireless LAN using ZoneDirector Smart WLAN controllers. ZoneFlex R500 can be deployed across any L2/L3 network and can bridge traffic onto the local network, tunnel to a central location using L2TP or PPPoE, or route between the WAN and NAT’ed private subnets. With the RUCKUS controllers, each ZoneFlex R500 is automatically configured through the network making deployment quick and easy.

Complete Local and Remote Management

Each ZoneFlex R500 can be managed as a standalone AP through a Web-based GUI, using SNMP or through the RUCKUS FlexMaster Wi-Fi remote management system. 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 troubleshooting 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.
