With throughput capacities of 300Mbps (2.4GHz) and 867 Mbps (5GHz), the ZoneFlex R510 brings cutting edge Wave 2 technology for the mid-tier segment. 802.11ac Multi-User MIMO (MU-MIMO) support allows the R510 to simultaneously transmit to multiple client devices, drastically improving airtime efficiency, overall throughput, and availability.
ZoneFlex R510 is purpose-built for medium density, high performance and interference-laden environments such as schools, universities, small-medium businesses, hotels, MDUs and conference centers.
The SmartCell™ Gateway (SCG) 200 represents the first in a new category of scalable and versatile WLAN controllers with support for 3GPP compatible WLAN gateway functionality. It has been designed to eliminate the difficulties operators are experiencing with building and managing large-scale Wi-Fi RANs and integrating them into the mobile packet core. The latter is required for a truly scalable heterogeneous network (HetNet) deployment. Capabilities include:
Massively Scalable WLAN Controller
Support for WLAN Gateway Functionality per 3GPP Standards
Integrated Element Management System Support
Support for Hotspot 2.0 functionality
SmartZone™ 100 (SZ-100) is the most scalable, resilient, and highest performing Wireless LAN controller within the Ruckus family of WLAN controllers for enterprises around the world. It manages up to 1,024 ZoneFlex Smart Wi-Fi access points, 2,000 WLANs, and 25,000 clients per device. Its unique SmartZone architecture allows the SZ-100 to be deployed in a 3+1 Active-Active cluster. With Active-Active clustering all members (up to 4) of a cluster will actively manage APs in the network, providing enhanced resiliency for high availability requirements. With clustering, the SZ-100 can manage up to 3,000 APs and 60,000 clients.
