ZoneFlex R300

The Industry’s Best-in-Class Performance at Lowest Cost

The next generation Ruckus ZoneFlex™ R300 is an entry level 802.11n 2×2:2 dual-band 2.4GHz and 5GHz concurrent access points designed for bandwidth hungry and latency sensitive applications such as Voice and Video over Wi-Fi. These APs boast Ruckus patented adaptive antennas deliver BeamFlex. This technology works in conjunction with Ruckus’ advanced channel optimization to provide industry-leading wireless performance. Unlike any other 802.11n wireless solution in its class, the ZoneFlex R300 combines patented adaptive antenna technology and automatic interference mitigation to deliver consistent, predictable performance at extended ranges with up to an additional 4dB of BeamFlex gain on top of the physical antenna gain and up to 10dB of interference mitigation.


Simply the Best - CARNet ReportCroatian Academic and Research Network (CARNet) recently conducted independent Wi-Fi performance testing, showcasing the world’s top 802.11ac and 802.11n access points (APs) within a real world high-capacity, high interference classroom environment. Using industry standard test tools, 19 APs were stressed within several progressive testing scenarios. Download the CARNet Report.
