ZoneFlex 7782 Overview

The Ruckus ZoneFlex 7782 Series comprise the industry's first 802.11n outdoor access points featuring the option of a 30° narrow beam antenna, a 120° antenna, internal omni-directional antennas, or an external antenna version along with BeamFlex+ technology to deliver up to 6 dB of additional signal gain and up to 15 dB of interference mitigation. The ZF 7782 Series was specifically designed to address the needs of very high-density deployments such as would be found around stadiums, arenas, airports, etc. These venues are characterized by tens of thousands of people in close proximity to each other and most are carrying mobile data devices of some sort. These are amongst the most challenging wireless environments imaginable and are ideally suited to Wi-Fi technology. High-density best practices usually call for a large number of AP's to get the needed capacity, but care must be taken to limit co-channel interference. The narrow beam antenna in the ZF 7782-N is able to focus RF energy into a specific area, which greatly reduces the opportunity for interference and increases network performance.

The ZF 7782 Series also features a very minimal form factor with integrated antennas which is essential in many deployments including light poles (aka street furniture) in major metro areas. These are great locations for outdoor AP deployments, but the entity that owns the poles will usually require that any AP be as unobtrusive as possible. The ZF 7782 Series is one of the most compact units in the industry.

Other key ZF 7782 Series capabilities include support for up to 500 concurrent users, integrated GPS receiver for location based services, spectrum analysis, hotspot 2.0 support for seamless roaming, SmartMesh wireless backhaul, ChannelFly support, PoE-out to power collocated small cells and much more.

The ZoneFlex 7782 Series can be deployed as a standalone AP and managed individually, or centrally managed by the ZoneDirector WLAN controller or through the SmartCell Gateway 200, which also provides connectivity into the mobile packet core.

ZoneFlex 7782 Data Sheet

DUAL BAND SMART WI-FI OUTDOOR AP The Industry's Highest Capacity, Highest Performing Access Point with Adaptive Antenna Technology and Smart Wi-Fi Meshing

The ZoneFlex 7782 Series is the first dual-band 802.11n outdoor access point (AP) to integrate BeamFlex+ adaptive antenna technology coupled with transmit beamforming (TxBF) to enable much longer range signals, and more resilient mesh connections that automatically adapt to interference and changing environmental conditions.

The ZoneFlex 7782 Series implements Ruckus-patented BeamFlex+ smart antenna technology that enables consistent, high-performance, extended coverage and multimedia support in the most challenging RF environments. BeamFlex+ combined with TxBF is capable of delivering up to 6 dB of signal- to-interference-plus-noise (SINR) improvement above the antenna gain and up to 15 dB of interference mitigation. Ruckus ChannelFly dynamic channel management optimizes client throughput up to 50 percent by selecting the best channel to operate on.

Supporting advanced Smart Mesh Networking, the Ruckus ZoneFlex 7782 Series is perfect for service providers looking to quickly and economically expand branded broadband services, offload data traffic from congested 3G networks, deploy multimedia hotspots or offer wireless broadband services where fixed line access is limited.

The ZoneFlex 7782 Series can be centrally managed by the ZoneDirector Smart WLAN controller or the Smart Cell Gateway (SCG) 200 as part of a unified indoor/outdoor wireless LAN, deployed as a standalone AP and managed individually, or through the FlexMaster remote Wi-Fi management system. A Web-based wizard allows any computer user to configure ZoneFlex 7782 Series - creating a secure and sophisticated WLAN in a matter of minutes.

Ruckus ZoneFlex 7782 Series simply plugs into any Ethernet network and automatically discovers the ZoneDirector or SCG 200. No RF tuning, no client configuration needed. The small, lightweight hardware unit is designed for easy installation and to minimize the visual impact and public awareness challenges of introducing new infrastructure to a public venue.
