Seleção de canal avançada ChannelFly

Otimização do desempenho

O que significa:

A tecnologia de gerenciamento dinâmico de canais ChannelFly nos APs da Ruckus melhora o desempenho sem fio por meio da alternância dinâmica de um cliente para um canal melhor quando o canal que ele está usando começa a perder qualidade.

Por que isso é importante:

Os produtos de WLAN mais modernos podem mudar o canal de um cliente quando o canal que ele está usando fica congestionado com interferência ou muitos dispositivos. Mas não há motivo para mudar de canal, a menos que você saiba que o novo canal realmente fornecerá mais capacidade. E a maioria das estratégias de gerenciamento de canal não faz um ótimo trabalho de previsão. A tecnologia ChannelFly avalia todos os canais disponíveis para medir a melhoria da capacidade real que cada um pode oferecer antes de direcionar o AP para mudar de canal.

A tecnologia ChannelFly foi originalmente desenvolvida para uso em ambientes de WiFi de operadora, nos quais os canais são altamente congestionados. Mesmo nessas condições públicas densas, ela melhora em muitas vezes a capacidade de rede e AP em segundos, automaticamente.

Tecnologia de antena adaptável BeamFlex

Otimização do desempenho

O que significa:

Sistemas de antenas adaptativas inteligentes e compactas com vários elementos que manipulam eletricamente as propriedades das antenas, a fim de criar padrões de antena ideais para cada dispositivo com o qual elas se comunicam.

Por que isso é importante:

Antenas sem fio tradicionais são "omnidirecionais" (irradiam sinais em todas as direções) ou "direcionais" (irradiam sinais em uma direção). A tecnologia de antena adaptativa BeamFlex da Ruckus tem uma abordagem mais adaptável. A tecnologia BeamFlex permite que o sistema de antenas em um AP da Ruckus mantenha uma capacidade sensorial e de otimização contínua para seu ambiente.

Este sistema de antenas ameniza problemas de interferência de rádio, ruído e desempenho da rede, além de melhorar os fluxos de aplicações. Os resultados:

  • Melhor desempenho e alcance
  • Comunicações por vídeo e voz extremamente claras
  • Maior eficiência energética

BeamFlex+ é um aprimoramento à tecnologia de antena adaptativa BeamFlex da Ruckus que oferece suporte adaptável a dispositivos móveis. O BeamFlex+ permite que as antenas se adaptem à orientação do dispositivo do cliente, bem como ao local.
