Backward compatible with all existing clients, the ZoneFlex R700 can function either as a standalone AP or as part of centrally-managed Wireless LAN with the Ruckus ZoneDirector Smart WLAN controller.
ZoneFlex R700 is purpose-built for high-capacity, high performance and interference-laden environments such as airports, public venues, hotels, universities and conference centers. The perfect choice for data-intensive streaming multimedia applications, the ZoneFlex R700 delivers picture perfect HD-quality IP video while supporting VoIP and data applications that have stringent quality of service requirements.
Ruckus Delivers the World’s First Purpose-Built 802.11ac Wi-Fi Product
Industry’s Only Dual-band, Three-stream 802.11ac Wi-Fi Access Point to Integrate
Patented Adaptive Antenna Arrays for Ultra High Performance, Capacity and
Reliability Using Standard 802.3af Power over Ethernet
SUNNYVALE, CA — MARCH 18, 2014 — Ruckus Wireless, Inc. (NYSE: RKUS)
announced today the Ruckus ZoneFlex™ R700, the world’s first dual-band,
three-stream indoor Wi-Fi product specifically designed from the ground up
built on the new 802.11ac standard. The R700 is the only 802.11ac product
on the market that integrates patented Ruckus BeamFlex+™ adaptive antenna
array technology to extend the range, reliability and speed of indoor Wi-Fi
services, giving enterprises and service providers the ability to offer
reliable, gigabit-class Wi-Fi performance.
The perfect storm of wireless data hit our San Francisco and Bay Area wireless networks last week.
Oracle Open World brought in the people and our networks observed almost triple the typical number of wireless connected devices at our hospitality and enterprise clients.
The iPhone iOS update then pushed bandwidth usage and data downloads to a new level. It seemed everywhere we looked iPhones were downloading the update.
We even had a IT manager asking where was all this traffic was coming from while he admitted he was currently updating his iPhone
Fortunately for our clients SF WiFi designs and installs high capacity and high speed wireless networks. We did not have one downed wireless network, one system reboot or a single screaming hotel general manager during this data perfect storm.
In fact this “data storm” was a great time for us to observe our network infrastructure under increased stress, look at config options and offer clients tweaks to optimize performance.
And congratulations to Oracle Team USA for winning the America’s Cup.
During the weeks of competition SF WiFi caught small views of the races as we commuted the city from project to project.
When the time came for our customer to expand and open a cross town office/warehouse they contracted SF WiFi to design and install a building to building wireless bridge to extend their existing network.
Design and install a stable and secure data link connecting the remote office to the home office local network
SF WiFi designed and installed a stable and secure wireless bridge with high speed
access points utilizing the 5GHz channel. This solution offers enterprise spec features
such as channel interference avoidance, AES based security and higher data throughput
rates than T1/E1 or xDSL lines at only a fraction of the cost.
A foggy day in Daly City:
This wifi bridge from home office to remote office is a 4.2 mile link. The picture at the left is the South S.F. office access point and illustrates that the client is literally redeiving data from the cloud.

Take the Guesswork Out of Planning a World Class Wireless LAN with a Smarter Wi-Fi RF Simulation Tool
Accurate network planning is one of most critical steps to successful Wi-Fi deployment, while poor planning leads to over-spending on infrastructure – resulting in spotty coverage and unhappy users.
ZonePlanner is ideal for designing and estimating Wi-Fi deployment headaches before the installation of any APs. With ZonePlanner, network managers can more easily and accurately plan, design, deploy and manage Ruckus Smart WLAN networks in any indoor environment.
ZonePlanner integrates directional, high-gain antenna patterns derived from BeamFlex, the Ruckus-patented and award-winning smart antenna array, and combines them with AirMagnet’s industry-leading planning tool.
Unlike other Wi-Fi APs on the market that use omni-directional dipole antennas to blindly radiate Wi-Fi energy in all directions, each Ruckus ZoneFlex AP integrates a high-gain directional smart antenna array that constantly focuses and directs Wi-Fi energy over the best performing signal paths to increase throughput and channel capacity while also significantly improving reliability and range.
By combining these state-of-the-art RF controls with powerful new planning tools, designing a world-class wireless LAN has never been easier.
