New Ruckus Smart Wi-Fi Innovations Take The Complexity Out Of Optimizing Wi-Fi Networks Overwhelmed With Mobile Devices

BeamFlex+ also enables better reception of communications from low-powered mobile devices that don't have strong Wi-Fi transmission capabilities. BeamFlex+ uniquely leverages maximal ratio combining (MRC) technology in combination with polarization diversity to improve the reception of signals from different orientations for more reliable communication.  This enables BeamFlex+ enabled Ruckus Smart Wi-Fi access points to "listen" to Wi-Fi transmissions that are sent in different ways from client devices, ensuring more consistent Wi-Fi connections.  With BeamFlex+, customers can effectively optimize the signal strength to realize significant improvements in performance and reliable connectivity.

Recent advances in Wi-Fi standards, such as 802.11n, now allow several parallel data streams to be transmitted from multiple antennas, thereby increasing Wi-Fi network throughput.  At the receiver, these streams are effectively combined to gain higher data rates. Unlike conventional access points, Ruckus Smart Wi-Fi APs with BeamFlex+ have complete control over how Wi-Fi signals are transmitted and in what orientation. This improves the chances to increase throughput in virtually any environment.

BeamFlex+ has the unique ability to control the shape of Wi-Fi signals to increase the probability that multiple data streams can be effectively combined within a given environment, improving Wi-Fi performance.

Pricing and Availability

Available immediately, Ruckus BeamFlex+ is supported at no cost in select Ruckus Smart Wi-Fi access points that integrate Ruckus-patented dual-polarized adaptive antenna systems.

Generally available in Q2, Ruckus SmartWay is a new, free software capability supported within the Ruckus ZoneFlex software operating system. SmartWay can currently be tested using existing Ruckus ZoneFlex systems by requesting a simple beta software upgrade.
