7781-CM Outdoor Access Point

Outdoor 802.11n Wi-Fi Access Point with Cable Modem

In a competitive marketplace, cable operators are looking to differentiate their services and grow revenues by extending broadband Wi-Fi throughout their coverage areas. But overlaying existing hybrid fiber coax (HFC) cable networks with new Wi-Fi services can be a complex—and expensive—proposition.

The Ruckus 7781-CM outdoor access point delivers the industry’s highest performing 802.11n 3x3:3 Wi-Fi in a lightweight, strand-mounted form factor that easily integrates with existing HFC networks. It features patented Ruckus technology to extend wireless range and reliability, combined with an integrated DOCSIS 3.0-, EuroDOCSIS-, and Japan-certified cable modem. Available with an omnidirectional antenna, the 7781-CM delivers consistent, reliable data access in a wide range of high-density environments.

Adaptive BeamFlex-Antennentechnologie

Leistungsoptimierung

Was es bedeutet:

Intelligente und kompakte adaptive Antennensysteme enthalten mehrere Komponenten, die die Antenneneigenschaften elektrisch beeinflussen, um so optimale Antennenmuster für alle Geräte zu erzeugen, mit denen sie kommunizieren.

Warum spielt das eine Rolle:

Herkömmliche Wireless-Antennen sind entweder „omnidirektional“ (senden Signale in alle Richtungen) oder „direktional“ (senden Signale in eine Richtung). Die adaptive BeamFlex-Antennentechnologie von Ruckus verfolgt einen stärker anpassungsfähigen Ansatz. Durch die BeamFlex-Technologie kann das Antennensystem in einem Ruckus-AP seine Umgebung fortlaufend abtasten und so die Leistung optimieren.

Dieses Antennensystem ist in der Lage, Funkstörungen, Rauschen und Probleme mit der Netzwerkleistung zu minimieren und Abläufe zu optimieren. Die Ergebnisse:

BeamFlex+ ist eine Erweiterung der adaptiven BeamFlex-Antennentechnologie von Ruckus, wobei mobile Geräte adaptiv unterstützt werden. Mit BeamFlex+ können Antennen sich nicht nur an die Position, sondern auch die Ausrichtung des Client-Geräts anpassen.

  • Bessere Leistung und Reichweite
  • Klarere Video- und Sprachübertragung
  • Maximale Leistungseffizienz

BeamFlex+ ist eine Erweiterung der adaptiven BeamFlex-Antennentechnologie von Ruckus, wobei mobile Geräte adaptiv unterstützt werden. Mit BeamFlex+ können Antennen sich nicht nur an die Position, sondern auch die Ausrichtung des Client-Geräts anpassen.
