Tecnologia di antenne adattive BeamFlex

Ottimizzazione delle prestazioni

Cosa significa:

Sistemi di antenne adattive intelligenti e compatti che contengono diversi elementi e manipolano elettricamente le proprietà dell'antenna al fine di creare percorsi ottimali per ciascun dispositivo con il quale comunicano.

Perché è importante:

Le antenne wireless tradizionali sono "omnidirezionali" (irradiano i segnali in tutte le direzioni) o "direzionali" (lo fanno in una direzione). La tecnologia di antenna adattiva Ruckus BeamFlex prevede un approccio più adattabile. La tecnologia BeamFlex consente al sistema di antenne in un AP Ruckus di analizzare e ottimizzare costantemente il proprio ambiente.

Il sistema di antenne riduce l'interferenza radio, il disturbo e i problemi di prestazioni della rete, oltre a migliorare i flussi delle applicazioni. I risultati?

  • Prestazioni e portata migliorate
  • Comunicazioni video e voce chiarissime
  • Efficienza energetica ottimizzata

BeamFlex+ è la versione migliorata della tecnologia di antenne adattive Ruckus BeamFlex e fornisce un supporto adattivo ai dispositivi mobili. BeamFlex+ consente alle antenne di adattarsi all'orientamento del dispositivo client, oltre alla sua posizione.
