Product Description

The Ruckus ZoneFlex R710u combines Ruckus patented technologies and best-in-class design with the next generation of 802.11ac features to deliver industry-leading Wi-Fi performance and reliability. Featuring BeamFlex+ adaptive antenna technology, the ZoneFlex R710u offers a substantial increase in performance and range by optimizing antenna coverage on a per client, per transmission basis.

Ruckus ZoneFlex R710u Key Features

  • 802.11ac Multi-User MIMO (MU-MIMO)
  • Concurrent dual-band (5 GHz/2.4 GHz) support
  • 80 MHz channelization; 256-QAM modulation support; 1733 Mbps PHY rates at 5 GHz
  • 256-QAM support on 2.4GHz
  • Ethernet Port Link Aggregation (LACP)
  • Backward compatible with legacy 802.11 clients
  • 802.3af mode of operation
  • 802.11ac standard Tx Beamforming

BeamFlex+ additionally mitigates co-channel interference by directing Wi-Fi signals where they are needed instead of towards neighboring access points.

The R710u’s BeamFlex+ adaptive antenna system is also equipped with dual polarization antennas, allowing the access point to adapt to the physical orientation of client devices and maximize uplink performance. With throughput capacities of 800 Mbps (2.4GHz) and 1733 Mbps (5GHz), the ZoneFlex R710u supports the highest available throughput for Wi-Fi clients. 802.11ac Multi-User MIMO (MU-MIMO) support allows the R710 to simultaneously transmit to multiple client devices, drastically improving airtime efficiency, overall throughput, and availability.
