Ruckus Wireless Launch the ZoneFlex R710 the First 802.11ac Wave 2 AP

April 10th, 2015

Ruckus Wireless has unveiled the Ruckus ZoneFlex™ R710 access point (AP), the industry’s first Wi-Fi AP based on Wave 2 features of the 802.11ac standard that extends Wi-Fi to enable multi-gigabit Wi-Fi performance and unprecedented capacity.

ZoneFlex R710

The new Ruckus ZoneFlex R710 is the first Wi-Fi access point to now support major technical advances in the 802.11ac standard that allow the simultaneous transmission of multiple client streams to different devices over the same frequency, a highly anticipated new capability called multi-user multiple input/multiple output (MU-MIMO). This enables over two times the density of mobile devices versus Wave 1, and aggregate data rates exceeding two gigabits per second.

“The R710 is an extraordinary feat of engineering that marks a new era for our industry,” said Selina Lo, president and CEO of Ruckus Wireless. “The work and innovation we’ve put into the R710 reflects our leadership in delivering the world’s best in class wireless products that stand the test of time.”

Ruckus Delivers Unique Advantage with BeamFlex™

Within a sleek and elegant new design, the Ruckus ZoneFlex R710 access point supports up to four spatial streams and 500 concurrent clients. Additionally, each ZoneFlex R710 access point integrates Ruckus-patented BeamFlex™+ adaptive antenna technology, designed to enhance the operation of Wave 2 802.11ac technology by optimizing antenna coverage on a per client, per transmission basis.
With four discrete, dual-band smart antenna arrays, the ZoneFlex R710 is capable of dynamically creating over 4,000 unique directional antenna patterns per radio, mitigating up to 15dB of RF interference while also reducing co-channel interference. Dual-polarized smart antennas also allow the R710 to automatically adapt to the changing physical orientation of mobile client devices such as smartphones and tablets, thereby helping to maximize uplink performance and offer unmatched reception of weak mobile client signals.

With BeamFlex+, the ZoneFlex R710 also offers a significant increase in performance and range, delivering up to 5dB of signal gain and aggregate data rates of over two gigabits per second (Gbps), 1,733 Mbps (@ 5 GHz) and 800 Mbps (@ 2.4 GHz). Backwards compatible with existing Wi-Fi clients, the ZoneFlex R710 can operate as a standalone Wi-Fi access point or part of a centrally managed Ruckus Smart Wireless LAN (WLAN). Additionally, the ZoneFlex R710 is equipped

zf-r710-front

with dual gigabit Ethernet ports that can be aggregated to satisfy peak throughput requirements for maximum investment protection. The ZoneFlex R710 is also unique in its ability to support spatial multiplexing, adaptive antenna switching and transmit beamforming—designed to ensure that Wi-Fi performance and reliability are never compromised. The ZoneFlex R710 maintains full 4×4:4 802.11ac functionality with standard 802.3af Power over Ethernet (PoE), eliminating the need for costly and cumbersome wired switch upgrades.

What’s the similarity between a Mercedes S500 and Davos?

January 23rd, 2015

It is said that if the technology appears in the Mercedes then other manufacturers will follow suit and those features will become standard, and that most of them are safety and security items.

So why is Davos like the S500?

If you read this BBC article (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/30925696), you’ll see that CEO’s of the world’s largest organisations are at last taking a very active interest in data security. And if they do, you can be sure that CEO’s of more modest organisations will do so too. The trickle-down effect.

True enough cyber criminals interested in bringing down a nuclear power station probably won’t be interested in hacking a double glazing company in Ipswich to get a customer prospect list, but free of charge hacking tools and tutorials are available on-line and there are more would be hackers out there that you can shake a stick at.

What’s the answer then?

Well it depends on what you are trying to protect; reputation, PCI data, customer data, supplier data or uptime for services.

There is no one answer, except this. Take responsibility as CEO to protect your business, your organisation, your school or college.

Ruckus Wireless Launch the ZoneFlex R710 the First 802.11ac Wave 2 AP

April 10th, 2015

Ruckus Wireless has unveiled the Ruckus ZoneFlex™ R710 access point (AP), the industry’s first Wi-Fi AP based on Wave 2 features of the 802.11ac standard that extends Wi-Fi to enable multi-gigabit Wi-Fi performance and unprecedented capacity.

ZoneFlex R710

The new Ruckus ZoneFlex R710 is the first Wi-Fi access point to now support major technical advances in the 802.11ac standard that allow the simultaneous transmission of multiple client streams to different devices over the same frequency, a highly anticipated new capability called multi-user multiple input/multiple output (MU-MIMO). This enables over two times the density of mobile devices versus Wave 1, and aggregate data rates exceeding two gigabits per second.

“The R710 is an extraordinary feat of engineering that marks a new era for our industry,” said Selina Lo, president and CEO of Ruckus Wireless. “The work and innovation we’ve put into the R710 reflects our leadership in delivering the world’s best in class wireless products that stand the test of time.”

Ruckus Delivers Unique Advantage with BeamFlex™

ZoneFlex R710 Antenna

Within a sleek and elegant new design, the Ruckus ZoneFlex R710 access point supports up to four spatial streams and 500 concurrent clients. Additionally, each ZoneFlex R710 access point integrates Ruckus-patented BeamFlex™+ adaptive antenna technology, designed to enhance the operation of Wave 2 802.11ac technology by optimizing antenna coverage on a per client, per transmission basis.
With four discrete, dual-band smart antenna arrays, the ZoneFlex R710 is capable of dynamically creating over 4,000 unique directional antenna patterns per radio, mitigating up to 15dB of RF interference while also reducing co-channel interference. Dual-polarized smart antennas also allow the R710 to automatically adapt to the changing physical orientation of mobile client devices such as smartphones and tablets, thereby helping to maximize uplink performance and offer unmatched reception of weak mobile client signals.

With BeamFlex+, the ZoneFlex R710 also offers a significant increase in performance and range, delivering up to 5dB of signal gain and aggregate data rates of over two gigabits per second (Gbps), 1,733 Mbps (@ 5 GHz) and 800 Mbps (@ 2.4 GHz). Backwards compatible with existing Wi-Fi clients, the ZoneFlex R710 can operate as a standalone Wi-Fi access point or part of a centrally managed Ruckus Smart Wireless LAN (WLAN). Additionally, the ZoneFlex R710 is equipped

with dual gigabit Ethernet ports that can be aggregated to satisfy peak throughput requirements for maximum investment protection. The ZoneFlex R710 is also unique in its ability to support spatial multiplexing, adaptive antenna switching and transmit beamforming—designed to ensure that Wi-Fi performance and reliability are never compromised. The ZoneFlex R710 maintains full 4×4:4 802.11ac functionality with standard 802.3af Power over Ethernet (PoE), eliminating the need for costly and cumbersome wired switch upgrades.

What’s the similarity between a Mercedes S500 and Davos?

January 23rd, 2015

It is said that if the technology appears in the Mercedes then other manufacturers will follow suit and those features will become standard, and that most of them are safety and security items.

So why is Davos like the S500?

If you read this BBC article (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/30925696), you’ll see that CEO’s of the world’s largest organisations are at last taking a very active interest in data security. And if they do, you can be sure that CEO’s of more modest organisations will do so too. The trickle-down effect.

True enough cyber criminals interested in bringing down a nuclear power station probably won’t be interested in hacking a double glazing company in Ipswich to get a customer prospect list, but free of charge hacking tools and tutorials are available on-line and there are more would be hackers out there that you can shake a stick at.

What’s the answer then?

Well it depends on what you are trying to protect; reputation, PCI data, customer data, supplier data or uptime for services.

There is no one answer, except this. Take responsibility as CEO to protect your business, your organisation, your school or college.

Ruckus Wireless Announce the ZoneDirector 1200

January 13th, 2015

The Ruckus Wireless ZoneDirector 1200 is Ruckus’ new centrally managed Smart Wireless LAN (WLAN) system.

With simplicity and ease of use in mind, the Ruckus ZoneDirector 1200 is purpose-built to address the gap between standalone, feature-deficient access points (APs) that must be individually managed and the costly, complex high-end enterprise systems that are overkill for most small business environments.

The Ruckus ZoneDirector 1200 can be deployed and operated by non-wireless experts and installed quickly and easily. Any organisation with limited IT staff and budget can create a robust and secure multimedia WLAN in a matter of minutes.

This new ZoneDirector will utilise a ‘pay as you grow’ license model so you can match the number of licenses to the exact numbers of access points for your deployment. This can then be expanded to support up to 75 APs. Please note the existing ZoneDirectors (3000 & 1100 series) will not be using this approach.
