Ruckus Takes Top Marks in High-Speed, Three-Stream Wi-Fi Device Testing

The Industry’s First Tests of New High-Speed Wi-Fi System Show Ruckus ZoneFlex 7982 Consistently Outperforms Cisco, Aruba, Aerohive and Meraki in Majority of Wi-Fi Tests

Ruckus Wireless® has announced that its new three-stream 802.11n ZoneFlex™ 7982 consistently outperformed competitive alternatives in the industry’s first evaluation of high-speed three-stream enterprise Wi-Fi access points (APs).

The competitive Wi-Fi testing, conducted by Syracuse University’s School of Information Studies’ Center for Convergence and Emerging Networking Technologies(CCENT), in cooperation with Ruckus Wireless, was developed to help enterprise managers better determine what type of real-world performance can be expected from leading Wi-Fi suppliers including Aruba, Aerohive, Cisco, Meraki, and Ruckus Wireless.

The comprehensive testing, performed by faculty and graduate students in Syracuse’s School of Information Studies, is the first view into the real-world performance of emerging three-stream 802.11n enterprise Wi-Fi systems. New three-stream 802.11n access points use multiple Wi-Fi radio chains to simultaneously transmit different streams to receiving devices. Three-stream capable receiving devices are able to combine these streams to achieve higher data rates. Typically Wi-Fi vendors quote the theoretical maximum data rate of 450 Mbps for each radio.

According to Syracuse University, the Ruckus ZoneFlex 7982 consistently posted the highest aggregate transmission control protocol (TCP) throughput measurements, taking the top spot in 66 percent of all the tests performed.
