Ruckus Takes Top Marks In Syracuse University's CCENT Testing Of High-Speed, Three-Stream Wi-Fi Devices

Stocks in this article: RKUS

Overall Vendor PerformancesAccording to Syracuse, in all single and multi-client AP testing, Ruckus consistently posted high TCP throughput measurements across both the 2.4 and 5GHz bands at short, medium, and long ranges.  In single AP, single client Wi-Fi testing, the average of three discrete runs were performed with the client being rotated 45 degrees for each test run.

Single AP / Single Client TestingIn single AP, single client bi-directional tests, the Ruckus ZoneFlex 7982 posted the top aggregate TCP throughput of 372, 275 and 228 Mbps at short, medium, and long distances, respectively. When compared against the average of all vendors at all distances, Ruckus delivered 60% greater Wi-Fi performance.

Single AP / Multi Client TestingIn single AP, multi client tests, the Ruckus ZoneFlex 7982 achieved the highest aggregate TCP throughput of all vendors on 83% of the tests. In bi-directional TCP throughput tests, the Ruckus 7982 posted top speeds of 206, 143, and 91 Mbps at short, medium, and long distances, respectively. When compared against the average of all vendors at all distances, Ruckus delivered 116% greater Wi-Fi performance.

Multi AP / Multi Client TestingIn multi-AP, multi-client tests (6 APs and 120 clients)—the most complex attempt to measure throughput of real-world enterprise deployments—the Ruckus ZoneFlex 7982 achieved the highest TCP throughput of all vendors on 58% of tests performed.  In bi-directional TCP throughput tests, the Ruckus ZoneFlex 7982 posted top aggregate speeds of 570 and 562Mbps. When compared against the average of all vendors at all distances, Ruckus delivered 51% greater Wi-Fi performance.

Ruckus and CCENT acknowledge that vendor-sponsored network testing should be viewed with a critical eye towards bias. CCENT made a diligent, sincere effort to exercise independence, soliciting input from the other vendors in cases where they were willing to cooperate, and to optimize performance for all products tested. CCENT plans to make all product test configurations available upon request and encourages others to replicate some or all of these tests in order to gain a fuller understanding of enterprise Wi-Fi performance.
