Optimized & Industry-ready Solutions
For All Your Complicated Needs
When connectivity really matters, organizations turn to RUCKUS. We offer indoor and outdoor wireless access points to fit just about any budget, performance requirement or deployment scenario. Whether you’re challenged with high client density, Wi-Fi-unfriendly building materials or just rising employee or customer expectations, our access points provide secure, reliable access no matter how tough the environment. Every RUCKUS AP, from the humblest to the boldest, is packed with patented technologies that go beyond the everyday to ensure superior connections and awesome user experiences.
Industry Focused Products!
RUCKUS SmartRoam technology addresses the roaming challenges described above by proactively monitoring client connection strength and facilitating client roaming to mitigate the side effects of poor roaming decisions made by clients alone. For example, if the connection strength (RSSI) of a client device is detected to fall below a roaming threshold, the AP to which it is connected will use technologies such as 802.11v BSS transition management messaging and 802.11k neighbor lists to steer the client to a roaming destination AP.
Client Load Balancing
Client load balancing seeks to improve WLAN performance by optimally distributing clients between nearby access points, so that one AP does not get overloaded while another sits idle. Each AP scans the air to determine which other APs on the network are physically near it, and then uses this knowledge as well as its own client loading to determine if it should steer clients to alternate APs.
Deploying an AP in an area where there is no easy way to run cable is a challenge. RUCKUS SmartMesh eliminates Ethernet cabling to every Wi-Fi access point, while also reducing cumbersome RF planning. SmartMesh simplifies the cost of a WLAN deployment. The SmartMesh allows APs to be connected by Ethernet as well to form new trees in the middle of the mesh and thus take advantage of spectrum reuse to increase system capacity while expanding the mesh. APs automatically determine their role in the mesh, and automatically react to topology changes.
BeamFlex Adaptive Antenna
Traditional APs use “omnidirectional” antennas that radiate signals in all directions. Conversely, RUCKUS BeamFlex adaptive antennas allow RUCKUS APs to dynamically choose among a host of antenna patterns (over 4,000 possible combinations) in real time to establish the best possible connection with every device. BeamFlex works on a per-packet basis to optimize the user experience. In addition, BeamFlex uniquely supports mobile devices by adapting antenna transmissions to a device’s orientation in both vertical and horizontal axes through our PD-MRC technology.
