T811-CM Series Outdoor Access Point

Outdoor 4x4:4 2.4/5GHz 802.11ac Wave 2 Wi-Fi access point with DOCSIS 3.1 backhaul

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 T811-CM outdoor access point delivers the industry’s highest performing 802.11ac Wave 2 4x4:4 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 3.1- and EuroDOCSIS cable modem. Available with an omnidirectional antenna, the T811-CM delivers consistent, reliable data access in a wide range of high-density environments.

ChannelFly Advanced Channel Selection

Performance Optimization

What it means:

The ChannelFly dynamic channel management technology in Ruckus APs improves wireless performance by dynamically switching a client to a better channel when the one it’s using starts to degrade.

Why you should care:

Most modern WLAN products can change a client’s channel when the one it’s using gets clogged with interference or too many devices. But there’s no point in switching channels unless you know the new one will actually provide more capacity. And most channel management strategies don’t do a great job of predicting. ChannelFly technology assesses all available channels to measure the real-world capacity improvement each one can provide before it directs the AP to switch channels.

ChannelFly technology was originally developed for use in carrier Wi-Fi environments, where channels are highly congested. Even in these dense public settings, it delivers multi-fold improvements in AP and network capacity—within seconds, automatically.

BeamFlex Adaptive Antenna Technology

Performance Optimization

What it means:

Smart, compact adaptive antenna systems containing multiple elements that electrically manipulate antenna properties so as to create optimal antenna patterns for each device with which they communicate.

Why you should care:

Traditional wireless antennas are either “omnidirectional” (radiating signals in all directions) or “directional” (radiating signals in one direction). Ruckus BeamFlex Adaptive Antenna Technology takes a more adaptable approach. BeamFlex technology enables the antenna system within a Ruckus AP to continually sense and optimize for its environment.

This antenna system mitigates radio interference, noise and network performance issues, and improves application flows. The results:

  • Increased performance and range
  • Crystal clear video and voice communications
  • Maximized power efficiency

BeamFlex+ is an enhancement to Ruckus BeamFlex adaptive antenna technology by providing adaptive support to mobile devices. BeamFlex+ enables antennas to adapt to client device orientation in addition to client device location.
