ZoneFlex R500 indoor 802.11ac access point

High Performance Smart Wi-Fi Access Point with Adaptive Antenna Technology

The Ruckus ZoneFlex R500 delivers high-performance and reliable 802.11ac wireless networking at a competitive price point.

Unlike any other 802.11ac wireless solution in its class, the ZoneFlex R500 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.

A sleek and low-profile design, the ZoneFlex R500 was purposebuilt for enterprises requiring reliable high speed client connectivity. It is ideal for a variety of medium density enterprise and hotspot environments including SMBs, hotels, retail outlets, and branch offices.
