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.

Технология адаптивных антенн BeamFlex

Оптимизация производительности

Что это такое:

Интеллектуальные и компактные многокомпонентные системы адаптивных антенн с автоматической регулировкой свойств создают оптимальные диаграммы направленности для каждого устройства, с которым взаимодействуют.

Почему это важно:

Обычные антенны беспроводной связи бывают либо всенаправленными (распространяют сигналы во всех направлениях), либо направленными (распространяют сигналы в одном направлении). В технологии адаптивных антенн Ruckus BeamFlex применяется более гибкий подход. Система антенн точки доступа Ruckus непрерывно распознает требования окружающей среды и оптимизирует свою работу в соответствии с ними.

Это позволяет уменьшить радиопомехи и шум, а также повысить производительность сети и качество выполнения приложения. В результате:

  • производительность и дальность действия увеличиваются;
  • клиенты получают голосовую связь и видео идеального качества;
  • энергоэффективность максимально повышается.

BeamFlex+ — это расширение технологии адаптивных антенн Ruckus BeamFlex, которое обеспечивает адаптивность для мобильных устройств. Технология BeamFlex+ адаптирует антенны не только к местоположению клиентского устройства, но и к его ориентации.
