Ruckus Wireless ZoneFlex 7782-N - Wireless access Product Details
The Ruckus ZoneFlex 7782-N is the industry's first 802.11n outdoor access point featuring a 30° narrow beam antenna array along with BeamFlex technology to deliver additional signal gain. The ZF 7782-N was specifically designed to address the needs of very high-density deployments such as would be found around stadiums, arenas, airports, etc. These venues are characterized by tens of thousands of people in close proximity to each other and most are carrying mobile data devices of some sort. These are amongst the most challenging wireless environments imaginable and are ideally suited to Wi-Fi technology. High-density best practices usually call for a large number of AP's to get the needed capacity, but care must be taken to limit co-channel interference. The narrow beam antenna in the ZF 7782-N is able to focus RF energy into a specific area, which greatly reduces the opportunity for interference and increases network performance.The ZF 7782-N also features a very minimal form factor with integrated antennas which is essential in many deployments including light poles in major metro areas. These are great locations for outdoor AP deployment, but the entity that owns the poles will usually require that any AP be as unobtrusive as possible.
