ZoneFlex 7762-S

One of the World’s First Concurrent 2.4/5GHz 802.11n Sector Access Point for unprecedented range, throughput and reliability

ZoneFlex 7762-S 3D

The Ruckus ZoneFlex 7762-S is one of the industry’s first 802.11n outdoor access point featuring a long-range, high-gain sectorized smart antenna array that integrates adaptive antenna technology and unique interference mitigation technology to deliver up to an additional 6dB of BeamFlex gain, physical antenna gain up to 12 dBi and 15 dB of interference mitigation within a 120° azimuth. This advanced smart Wi-Fi design with concurrent 802.11n radios delivers 150 Mbps of sustained throughput between mesh APs 600 meters apart and 50 Mbps of sustained throughput to clients 300 meters away.

The ZoneFlex 7762-S is perfect for providers looking to quickly and economically expand branded broadband services, offload data traffic from congested 3G networks, deploy multimedia hotspots or offer wireless broadband services where fixed line access is limited. Concurrent 2.4/5GHz 802.11n radios for access and backhaul traffic deliver high-throughput to clients.

A directional antenna array and expert QoS software optimize delay-sensitive, IP video and high-density voice over Wi-Fi (VoFi) applications and PoE output allows connecting other devices such as an IP camera. Integrated Smart Mesh Networking technology automates deployment and eliminates running expensive cables to every outdoor AP.

The ZoneFlex 7762-S can be deployed as a standalone AP and managed individually, or centrally managed by the ZoneDirector Smart WLAN controller or through the FlexMaster remote Wi-Fi management system as part of a unified indoor/outdoor wireless LAN. The Ruckus ZoneFlex 7762-S simply plugs into any Ethernet network and is automatically discovered by the ZoneDirector.

Product

The Ruckus ZoneFlex 7762-S is one of the industry’s first 802.11n outdoor access point featuing a long-range, high-gain sectorized smart antenna array for unprecedented range, throughput and reliability at a fraction of the cost of conventional alternatives.

The ZoneFlex 7762 is the first dual-band 802.11n outdoor access point to integrate dynamic beamforming technology to enable much longer range signals, better signal penetration inside buildings, and more resilient mesh connections that automatically adapt to interference and changing environmental conditions.

This high-gain smart antenna array supports up to 100 simultaneous data users or 20 concurrent voice calls, and capable of sustaining 20 Mbps of performance over 100 meters (LOS) and up to 10 Mbps of sustained throughput up to 300 meters per radio. Superior signal coverage reduces the number of APs required for any given area.

Smart Wi-Fi applied outdoors now enables new revenue-generating services such as community Wi-Fi, IP-video applications, multimedia hotspots, extended WLAN services outdoors and 3G data offloading.

Smart

Dynamic RF Management

A patented, sectorized smart antenna array in each ZoneFlex 7762-S outdoor AP integrates horizontally and vertically polarized high-gain, directional antenna elements to provide 24 potential signal paths to any given end device while delivering up to 10dBi in signal gain and up to 15dB of interference avoidance within a 120 degree azimuth for a remarkable increase in Wi-Fi coverage, better signal penetration into buildings, and more resilient mesh connections that automatically adapt to changing environmental conditions.

Advanced smart Wi-Fi design with concurrent 802.11n radios delivers 150 Mbps of sustained throughput between mesh APs 600 meters apart and 50 Mbps of sustained throughput to clients 300 meters away. Directional, high-gain antennas dynamically combine to deliver two- to four-times the coverage over typical outdoor APs. A directional antenna array combined with expert QoS software optimize delay-sensitive, IP video and high-density voice over Wi-Fi (VoFi) applications and PoE output allows connecting other devices such as an IP camera.

A sleek, lightweight design hiding external antennas is combined with ultra-simple, Wizard-based configuration to make configuration and installation as simple as it gets, performed in minutes, not hours.

Water and dust-proof IP-67 plastic enclosure with flexible mounting options ensures that no distortion of Wi-Fi signals is introduced. ZoneFlex 7762-S can be deployed in harsh environmental conditions ranging from -40°C – 65°C (-40°F – 149°F).

Meshing

Self-Organizing, Self-Healing Wireless Meshing. Reduced Costs

Integrated Smart Mesh Networking technology automates deployment and eliminates running expensive cables to every outdoor AP . Supporting advanced Smart Mesh Networking, the ZoneFlex 7762-S is perfect for providers looking to quickly and economically expand branded broadband services, offload data traffic from congested 3G networks, deploy multimedia hotspots or offer wireless broadband services where fixed line access is limited. Separate radios for access and backhaul traffic deliver high-throughput to clients.

Security

Differentiated Services with Multiple SSIDs

Up to eight discrete SSIDs can be configured per ZoneFlex radio (16 total) , each with unique broadcast, QoS, security, and management parameters assigned. This enables operators to easily offer tiered services to different user or traffic types.

Used with ZoneDirector, ZoneFlex 7762-S provides first-of-its-kind automatic user security enforcement. With Ruckus Dynamic PSK™, new users simply plug their computers into the LAN, then specify a URL that directs them to a captive portal for a one-time authentication. Then, ZoneDirector automatically configures the user’s system with the designated SSID and a unique, dynamically-generated encryption key.

Management

Simple Deployment and Configuration

The ZoneFlex 7762-S can be centrally managed by the ZoneDirector Smart WLAN controller as part of a unified indoor/ outdoor wireless LAN or deployed as a standalone AP and managed individually or through the FlexMaster remote Wi-Fi management system. A Web-based wizard allows any computer user to configure ZoneFlex 7762-S through the ZoneDirector™ — creating a secure and sophisticated WLAN in a matter of minutes. The ZoneFlex 7762-S simply plugs into any Ethernet network and automatically discover the ZoneDirector. No RF tuning, no client configuration needed. A true plug-and-play outdoor WLAN that is ready to use.
