Product Description:

Ruckus ZoneFlex R500 Dual-Band 802.11AC Smart WiFi Access Point

High Performance, 802.11ac Mid-Range Smart Wi-Fi Access Points with Adaptive Antenna Technology
The Ruckus ZoneFlex R500 delivers high-performance and reliable 802.11ac wireless networking at a competitive price point.

Unlike any other 802.11ac wireless solution in its class, the ZoneFlex R500 combines patented adaptive antenna technology and automatic interference mitigation to deliver consistent, predictable performance at extended ranges with up to an additional 4dB of BeamFlex gain on top of the physical antenna gain and up to 10dB of interference mitigation.

The R500 is ideal for wireless networks servicing mobile devices with dual-polarized antennas that adapt in real time to hand-held device movement and rotation ensuring consistent performance.

Each ZoneFlex R500 integrates Ruckus-patented BeamFlex, a software-controlled, high gain antenna array that continually forms and directs each Wi-Fi packet over the best performing signal path.
The ZoneFlex R500 automatically selects channels for highest throughput potential using Ruckus ChannelFly dynamic channel management, adapting to environmental changes. Once deployed, enterprises never have to worry about constant site surveys as the environment changes.

A sleek and low-profile design, the ZoneFlex R500 was purposebuilt for enterprises requiring reliable high speed client connectivity.
It is ideal for a variety of medium density enterprise and hotspot environments including SMBs, hotels, schools, retail outlets, and branch offices
