ZoneFlex 7055

Multiservice 802.11n dual band concurrent 2 stream Wired/Wireless wall switch

The ZoneFlex 7055 is the industry’s first dual-band dual-concurrent wall mounted wired switch and wireless wall switch designed for next generation wireless. The ZoneFlex 7055 features integrated 2.4GHz and 5GHZ concurrent 802.11n WLAN radios, five wired Ethernet ports, PoE ouput, and a passthrough port for devices such as digital phones that require native access to a PBX system. Designed with hotels and multi-dwelling units in mind, the ZoneFlex 7055 is easy to mount to an electrical junction box and has a sleek and low-profile form factor. It provides flexible deployment options with Ruckus SmartMesh Networking for areas without existing Ethernet infrastructure.


The ZoneFlex 7055 is the industry’s first dual-band 2.5GHz and 5GHz wall mounted switch focusing on next generation mobile and smart devices with 5GHz support. It delivers high performance 802.11n wireless coverage and four wired Ethernet access connections that can be used to support a range of in-room IP device and user connectivity options. An additional passthrough port allows connectivity for digital phones that requires native access to an in-house PBX system.

An IEEE 802.3af/at-compliant POE port, powers devices such as IP telephones directly from the wall switch. The ZoneFlex 7055 requires only a single POE cable drop thereby reducing cabling, switch ports, and power sourcing equipment.

The ZoneFlex 7055 can be deployed in standalone mode or centrally managed by the Ruckus ZoneDirector or Ruckus FlexMaster systems.


With SmartMesh Networking the ZoneFlex 7055 can be deployed in difficult to reach places with out existing Ethernet cabling or for extending wired and wireless coverage for temporary access.

The ZoneFlex Wi-Fi Wall Switch very low profile, minimizing the protrusion off the wall to make in-room cabling and furniture arrangement simple. Flexible deployment options allow the ZoneFlex 7055 to be easily installed via two uplink Ethernet options: an RJ-45 Ethernet jack or a 110 punch down block connection.


Authentication options include: 802.1x, MAC-based, captive portal, LDAP, RADIUS, Active Directory and through an internal user database.

Differentiated Services

The ZoneFlex 7055 is the first wired/wireless wall switch to provide support for next generation mobile devices that support 5GHz connections. These devices include new Apple devices such as MacbookPros, iPhone 5 and iPhad 2 and newer, newly announced Google Chromebook Pixel laptop, and many Android devices.

Port-based VLANs and up to eight discrete SSIDs can be configured within each ZoneFlex 7055, each with unique broadcast, QoS, security and management parameters. The ZoneFlex 7055 idea for supporting concurrent IP-based services such as VoIP, IPTV, high-speed Internet access and in-room device connectivity. This enables enterprises to easily offer tiered services to different user or traffic types, differentiate guest, contractor, and employee access policies, or segment different traffic types.
