Ruckus Puts Higher Speed, Multi-Band Wi-Fi Into Hotel Walls

Stocks in this article: RKUS

The new Ruckus ZoneFlex 7055 delivers 802.3af Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) to power devices such as a Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) phone, using one of its front-facing Ethernet ports.  An additional pass-through port allows direct wired connectivity for devices that need to bypass the Ethernet switch altogether or provide a guest with VLAN connectivity. It can be powered by 802.3af/PoE through the uplink port, which means only a single cable drop is required behind the wall. In the absence of PoE, a standard power adapter can also power the ZoneFlex 7055.

With support for Ruckus Wireless SmartMesh Networking, the ZoneFlex 7055 is an excellent solution for buildings where running Ethernet cable behind the walls is difficult or prohibitively expensive.  In-room wired and wireless access can be provided in several rooms, each hosting a single ZoneFlex 7055 powered by a power adapter and meshed with a centrally wired (root) access point (AP).  Since only the root AP requires a cabled Ethernet uplink, multiple rooms are covered with just a single cable drop.

Pricing and Availability

Shipping now, the new Ruckus ZoneFlex 7055 Wi-Fi wall switch has an MSRP of $369 (USD), and is available through authorized Ruckus Big Dog resellers worldwide.
