Ruckus Wireless has announced it has built, 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.
Operating as a standalone access point (AP) or part of a centrally managed wireless LAN (WLAN), the Ruckus ZoneFlex R700 is purpose-built for the 802.11ac standard.
Ruckus says the product is suited for high capacity and challenging wi-fi environments such as airports, hotels, schools, hospitals, warehouses and high-density venues.
“While 802.11ac promises improved performance across the board, realising that promise requires sophisticated RF controls and advanced WLAN system architecture and product implementation,” says Craig Mathias, a principal with the mobile and wireless advisory firm Farpoint Group. “With the announcement of the R700, Ruckus Wireless is building upon years of innovation with exactly the techniques required for success in the gigabit-WLAN era.”
Ruckus says one of the first customers to deploy the Ruckus ZoneFlex R700 is Sejong Smart School in South Korea, which has just installed over 500 ZoneFlex R700 APs.
