7781-CM

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.

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.
