Wireless News

Ruckus Wireless logoRuckus Wireless has announced two new 802.11n access points.

The ZoneFlex 7982 is a dual-band three-stream 802.11n access point designed for "high-capacity" environments such as stadiums, airports and schools. It is based on a "latest generation" Qualcomm Atheros three-stream N chipset and is said to be able to support 500 simultaneous clients with link rates up to 450 Mbps with three-stream clients.

Ruckus attributes the 7982's performance to a patented, dual-polarized adaptive antenna array (photo below), beamforming and maximal ratio combining (MRC) techniques.

The ZoneFlex 7321 uses similar technology but supports only a maximum of 256 concurrent users and has a single dual-band two-stream radio supporting maximum link rates of 300 Mbps.

Both APs support 802.3af power over Ethernet (PoE) and can be deployed as either standalone or as part of a centrally-managed WLAN. Other features of both products include bandsteering, airtime fairness and predictive, capacity-driven channel selection.

The ZoneFlex 7982 and 7321 are shipping now at MSRPs of $1099 and $349, respectively.
