Intuitive Cloud Managed Wi-Fi

Ruckus Cloud Wi-Fi takes the complexity out of deploying and managing your Wi-Fi network. Even a small IT staff can keep pace with the longest list of Wi-Fi demands—new users, guest networks, Wi-Fi-enabled buildings and campuses. Ruckus checks all the boxes for simple, intuitive cloud managed Wi-Fi:

  • Remote setup of additional APs and new sites in minutes
  • Intuitive web interface with virtually no learning curve
  • Full-featured mobile app for anywhere, anytime network management and monitoring

Exceptional Wi-Fi User Experience

Ruckus is known for exceptional Wi-Fi performance even under the most challenging network conditions. This means exceptionally happy users.  Get the best of both worlds–easy cloud Wi-Fi management together with the best APs in the industry.

  • Read this independent report showing how Ruckus APs outperform all other 802.11ac wireless APs.
  • Learn more about how Ruckus BeamFlex adaptive antenna technology creates optimal antenna patterns for each device for better signal quality.
  • Read how Ruckus ChannelFly technology dynamically switches a client to a better channel to mitigate interference.

Lower WLAN Total Cost of Ownership (TCO)

You can count on Wi-Fi demands increasing.  But can you count on budgets increasing, too? Here's one way to keep growth and budgets aligned: reduce the TCO of your WLAN infrastructure. Our APs offer better capacity and coverage, often able to support 30-50% more clients than competitive solutions. Think of all the APs you won't need to buy, plus the associated expenses you'll save. A more cost-efficient infrastructure is definitely the way to grow.

Use this TCO calculator to compare deployment costs with Ruckus Cloud Wi-Fi and other providers.

Protect Your AP Investment

Wi-Fi technology is changing at a dizzying rate. Your own wireless environment is probably changing constantly, too. You may decide to shift your WLAN management approach. With Ruckus Cloud Wi-Fi, your Wi-Fi network investments are protected.

  • Works with a growing list of Ruckus 802.11ac APs
  • Change WLAN management from cloud to on-premise or vice versa without changing APs

Technologie d’antennes adaptatives BeamFlex

Optimisation des performances

Ce que cela signifie :

Des antennes adaptatives compactes et intelligentes refermant plusieurs éléments manipulant les propriétés des antennes électriquement afin de créer des modèles d'antenne optimaux pour chaque appareil avec lequel elles communiquent.

En quoi cela devrait vous concerner :

Les antennes sans fil traditionnelles sont soit « omnidirectionnelles » (émettant des signaux dans toutes les directions), soit « directionnelles » (émettant des signaux dans une seule direction). La technologie d'antennes adaptatives BeamFlex de Ruckus adopte une approche plus adaptable. La technologie BeamFlex permet au système d'antennes au sein d'un point d'accès Ruckus de capter et d'optimiser les signaux de manière continue en fonction de l’environnement.

Ce système d'antennes minimise les interférences radio, le bruit et les problèmes de performances réseau et améliore le flux des applications. Résultat :

  • Des performances et une portée améliorées
  • Une vidéo et des communications vocales d'une grande clarté
  • Une économie d'énergie optimisée

BeamFlex+ est une amélioration de la technologie d'antennes adaptatives BeamFlex de Ruckus offrant un support adaptatif aux appareils mobiles. BeamFlex+ permet aux antennes de s'adapter à l'orientation et à l'emplacement des appareils clients.

Sélection avancée de canaux ChannelFly

Optimisation des performances

Ce que cela signifie :

La technologie de gestion de canaux dynamique ChannelFly, intégrée aux points d'accès Ruckus, améliore les performances sans fil en transférant dynamiquement un client vers un meilleur canal lorsque celui qu'il utilise commence à se dégrader.

En quoi cela devrait vous concerner :

La plupart des produits WLAN d'aujourd'hui peuvent changer le canal d'un client lorsque celui qu'il utilise est sujet à beaucoup trop d'interférences ou est utilisé par trop d'appareils. Toutefois, il ne sert à rien de changer de canal si l'on ne sait pas si le nouveau canal offre une meilleure capacité. En outre, la plupart des stratégies de gestion de canaux ne sont pas capables de prévoir ce genre de chose avec précision. La technologie ChannelFly évalue tous les canaux disponibles et mesure la capacité d'amélioration réelle que peut fournir chacun d'entre eux avant d'ordonner au point d'accès de changer de canal.

À l'origine, la technologie ChannelFly a été développée pour être utilisée dans les environnements WiFi sujets à une forte congestion des opérateurs. Dans de tels environnements, cette technologie est capable de renforcer les capacités du réseau et des points d'accès automatiquement et en quelques secondes.
