RUCKUS ZoneFlex 7363 Access Point
High Performance, 802.11n Mid-Range Smart Wi-Fi Access Points with Dynamic Beamforming.
Now cost-minded enterprises have a sleek and low-profile purpose-built AP for delivering high-performance and reliable 802.11n wireless networking at the industry’s most affordable price point.
The Ruckus ZoneFlex 7300 series delivers high-performance and reliable 802.11n wireless networking at the industry’s most affordable price point. The ZoneFlex 7300 series includes both single-band (7343) and dual band (7363) products. Maximum 802.11n capacity of 300Mbps (single band) or 600Mbps (dual band), makes the ZoneFlex 7300 the industry’s lowest cost, highest performing line of 802.11n mid-range access points available. The aesthetically-pleasing design is ideal for a variety of enterprise and hotspot environments including hotels, schools, retail outlets, branch offices and public venues.
Unlike any other 802.11n wireless solution in its class, the ZoneFlex 7300 combines patented dynamic beamforming and automatic interference mitigation to deliver consistent, predictable performance at extended ranges with 4dBi of signal gain and 10dB of interference rejection.
The ZoneFlex 7300 delivers a 2- to 4-fold increase in signal range with lower packet error rates while reducing the number of APs required to deliver dependable Wi-Fi service.
Each ZoneFlex 7300 integrates Ruckus-patented BeamFlex, a software-controlled, high gain antenna array that continually forms and directs each 802.11n packet over the best performing signal path. And because the ZoneFlex 7300 automatically adapts to environmental changes, once deployed, enterprises never have to worry about constant site surveys as the environment changes.
A sleek and low-profi le design, the ZoneFlex 7300 was purpose-built for cost-minded enterprises requiring reliable high speed client connectivity. It is ideal for a variety of enterprise and hotspot environments including hotels, schools, retail outlets, branch offi ces and public venues.
Offered in single and dual band models, the ZoneFlex 7300 series can be deployed as a standalone access point or as part of the centrally-controlled Smart Wireless LAN with the Ruckus ZoneDirector. The ZoneFlex 7300 can also be easily deployed using Smart Mesh Networking to extend Wi-Fi services in locations where Ethernet cabling is not available or cost prohibitive.
Standard 802.3af power over Ethernet (PoE) leverages existing PoE switches eliminating costly and cumbersome upgrades.
Patented BeamFlex™ Technology Extends Signal Range, Improves Stability of Client Connections
All ZoneFlex 7300 Smart Wi-Fi access points integrate a software- controlled smart antenna array that delivers 4dBi of signal gain and 10dB of interference rejection. This allows a 2 to 4x improvement in signal range and a reduction in packet loss from the ability to automatically avoid interference and obstacles.
Advanced WLAN Applications with Smart/OS
When used with the Ruckus ZoneDirector Smart WLAN controller, each ZoneFlex 7300 supports a wide range of value-added applications such as guest networking, Smart Wireless Meshing, Dynamic PSK, hotspot authentication, wireless intrusion detection and many more. With Smart/OS, up to 32 discrete WLANs can be created and mapped to the same or different APs or VLANs. WLANs can also be grouped and shared by specifi c APs. In a centrally managed confi guration, the ZoneFlex 7300 works with a wide range of authentication servers including Microsoft’s Active Directory, LDAP, and RADIUS.
Flexible Deployment Options
ZoneFlex 7300 APs can be deployed in as a standalone AP or as part of a centrally managed wireless LAN using ZoneDirector Smart WLAN controllers. ZoneFlex 7300’s can be deployed across any L2/L3 network and/or meshed without Ethernet cabling. When used with the ZoneDirector, each ZoneFlex 7300 is automatically configured through the network making deployment quick and easy.
Complete Local and Remote Management
Each ZoneFlex 7300 can be managed as a standalone AP through a Web-based GUI, using SNMP or through the Ruckus Wi-Fi remote management system. Local management can also be performed using the ZoneDirector Smart WLAN controller. is a LINUXbased software platform that uses industry-standard protocols to perform bulk confi guration, fault detection, monitoring and a wide range of troubleshooting capabilities over a wire area connection. The ZoneDirector enables local management and control of APs, adding value-added services such as transmit power and channel management, guest networking and meshing.
