ZoneFlex R510

High Performance Smart Wi-Fi Access Point with Adaptive Antenna Technology

The ZoneFlex R510 is a 2x2 802.11ac Wave 2 enterprise-class access point featuring MU-MIMO. The R510 is ready for Wave 2 clients, enabling higher client density in a mixed client environment. The R510 makes use of existing 802.3af PoE infrastructure, minimizing the total cost of upgrade. R510 is ideal for mid-size enterprises in a wide range of verticals that must support high client density.

The R510 delivers consistent Wi-Fi performance in most environments by combining patented Ruckus BeamFlex+ technology and automatic interference mitigation. Network managers will appreciate predictable performance at extended ranges, enabled by up to 4dB of gain from BeamFlex+ technology and up to 10dB of interference mitigation.

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.
