ZoneFlex 7982 - the best access point ever

  1. 1. Best to Market Wi-FiRuckus Bolsters the Market’s Broadest Wi-FiPortfolio With Wi-Fi Innovations at the High End
  2. 2. What’s News? Wi-Fi Outpacing Cellular Data Consumption 1. Capacity, performance and reliability have (Jan. 2012) become the top three problems to solve 30% 2. Introducing breakthrough price/performance GLOBAL AGGREGATE at the high and low end of the Wi-Fi market 70% ZoneFlex 7982 ▪ First 3-stream 802.11n AP Source: with adaptive antennas Most Mobile Data Usage Occur IndoorsOUTDOORS (Jan. 2012) INDOORS 3. The broadest and most complete Wi-Fi portfolio for carriers and enterprises 25% ▪ The only products that deliver Pervasive Performance™ 75% Source: In-Stat, IDC, etc. 2
  3. 3. What is Pervasive Performance?Delivering the most consistent and highest speedwireless performance possible – anywhere, everywhere,all the time Adaptive signal controlAugmenting the Interference mitigationWi-Fi radio isthe only way Capacity-driven channel assignmentto positivelyaffect wireless Dynamic polarization diversityperformance. Increased signal strength Network capacity optimization (airtime fairness, client load balancing, band steering) 3
  4. 4. More is Killing Wireless Top Three Carrier / Enterprise Concerns Circa 2012 BANDW IDTH 1 Capacity Constraints MORE Client density , aggregate throughput MORE MORE USERS 2 TRAFFIC MORE MORE APPLICATIONS MORE Poor DEVICES VIDEO Connectivity At range, everywhere, all the time MORE NOISE 3 Interference Dropped packets, low data rates 4
  5. 5. Introducing ZoneFlex 7982 Industry’s Highest Performing, Highest Capacity 3-Stream Enterprise AP ▪ The only dual-band AP supporting transmit beamforming AND adaptive antennas ▪ Up to 9dB in added signal gain ▪ Adaptive polarization diversity ▪ Up to 4dB in added receive gain (PD-MRC) ▪ Highest capacity 802.11n AP ▪ Capable of up to 500 clients per device ▪ Based on newest three-stream chipset ▪ Advanced features: TxBF, airtime fairness, bandsteering, ChannelFly IDEAL FORCARRIERS ENTERPRISES ▪ No mounting brackets required (integrated)▪ Stadiums ▪ Schools▪ Airports ▪ Hotels ▪ Standard 802.3af and plenum rated▪ Conference centers ▪ Hospitals▪ Shopping Malls▪ Public venues ▪ Lifetime warranty ▪ Available immediately at USD $1099 5
  6. 6. Inside the 7982 Over 3000 unique Integrated key Dual antenna holes for wall or radios patterns ceiling mount 3x3:3 (900 Mbps) Vertical and Routing horizontal channel polarity for cables Release Integrated mechanism T-bar mount protected 20.3cmwith security screw 5cm 20.3cm 1kg. (2.25 lbs.) Two 10/100/1000 Hidden Ethernet ports with cables 802.2af PoE Secured with Kensington Lock 6
  7. 7. What’s So Unique?1. Combined adaptive antennas and transmit beamforming ▪ Better range, stronger signal and higher data rates to clients2. Adaptive polarization diversity (Tx/Rx) ▪ Better chance to hear and talk to low transmit power clients that constantly change their orientation3. Reduced Wi-Fi interference ▪ 50% reduction in interference to neighboring APs ▪ Up to 15dB of interference mitigation (ZoneFlex 7982)4. Improves mobile client device performance ▪ Higher speeds to single-stream mobile devices, two-stream clients5. Highest capacity with best price/performance in its class ▪ Aggregate throughput/concurrent clients 7
  8. 8. Extending Performance at RangeAdaptive Antennas and Transmit Beamforming Working Together Problem Best-of-Both-Worlds Solution 6dB 9dB Client Direction 3dB AP + = Conventional TxBF Pattern Asymmetric Composite BeamFlex 2.0 BeamFlex AA Pattern AA + TxBF Pattern Better client connection NET RESULT > 9dB OF S I G N A L T O TxBF alone INTEFERENCE PLUS NOISE (SINR) IMPROVEMENT Composite AA + TxBF > 15dB OF INTEFERENCE M I T I G AT I O N Less self-interference than symmetric TxBF pattern 8
  9. 9. Adaptive Polarization Diversity Device orientation accounts for up to 5x performance ▪ Better reception (PD-MRC) for weak differential among products and hard to “hear” devices ▪ Better transmission to devices constantly changing their orientation HORIZONTAL POLARIZATION VERTICAL POLARIZATION 9
