Ruckus ZoneFlex 7982 is the industry’s first dual-band, three-stream 802.11n access point that incorporates Ruckus-patented BeamFlex™ adaptive antenna arrays. Coupled with transmit beamforming (TxBF), when available, the ZoneFlex 7982 delivers the highest throughput of any AP in its class.
The ZoneFlex 7982 ensures the most reliable connectivity within challenging and ever-changing RF environments. With BeamFlex, the ZoneFlex 7982 offers a 2-4x increase in performance and range and is capable of delivering up to 9 dB of signal-to-interference-plus-noise (SINR) improvement and up to 15 dB of interference mitigation over other APs.
Capable of supporting 500 concurrent clients, the ZoneFlex 7982 simultaneously supports spatial multiplexing and BeamFlex to deliver the best price/performance of any three-stream 802.11n AP. With a stream throughput of 450 Mbps per radio, the ZoneFlex 7982 ensures maximum throughput to three-stream capable clients while also improving single and dual-stream client performance. This is achieved through the unique combination of adaptive antenna technology, predictive channel selection and adaptive polarization diversity.
Backward compatible with all existing clients, the ZoneFlex 7982 can function either as a standalone AP or as part of centrally- managed Wireless LAN with the Ruckus ZoneDirector Smart WLAN controller.
