Ruckus Wireless ZoneDirector 1006 + ZoneFlex 7962 (x3)

ZoneDirector 1000
™
Enterprise-Class Smart Wireless LAN Controllerr
The First “IT Lite” Full-featured
Smart Wireless LAN Controller
The Ruckus Wireless ZoneDirector 1000 is the first centrally
managed Smart Wireless LAN (WLAN) system developed
specifically for small-to-medium enterprises (SMEs) and hot
zone operators.
With simplicity and ease of use in mind, the Ruckus
ZoneDirector 1000 is purpose-built to address the gap
between standalone, feature-deficient access points (APs) that
must be individually managed and the costly, complex highend enterprise systems that are overkill for most small business
environments.
BENEFITS
Simple to use, simple to manage
Centralized management, quick setup, IT-Lite and automatic, real-time
optimization of entire WLAN
Smart Mesh Networking streamlines costly and complex
deployment
Integrated Smart Mesh Networking technology automates deployment, eliminates the need to run Ethernet cable to every Smart Wi-Fi
access point
IT Lite deployment in 5 minutes or less
The Ruckus ZoneDirector is ideal for small businesses
that require a robust and secure WLAN that can be easily
deployed, centrally managed and automatically tuned.
The ZoneDirector 1000 is also perfect for operators who want
to offer business class hot spot services such as voice over
Wi-Fi, IP-based video, secure enterprise access and tiered
Wi-Fi services in venues such as hotels, airports, schools and
public buildings.
The ZoneDirector 1000 integrates the Ruckus Smart/OS
application engine that delivers advanced features such as
smart wireless meshing, hot spot authentication, elegant guest
networking and dynamic Wi-Fi security.
The Ruckus ZoneDirector 1000 can be deployed and operated by non-wireless experts and installed quickly and easily.
Any organization with limited IT staff and budget can create a
robust and secure multimedia WLAN in a matter of minutes.
The Ruckus ZoneDirector easily integrates with network, security and authentication infrastructure already in place and is
easily configured through a point-and-click web-based wizard.
Ruckus ZoneFlex APs automatically discover and are configured by the ZoneDirector.
A web-based configuration wizard lets any computer user configure
an entire WLAN in minutes. Ruckus ZoneFlex APs auto-discover the
ZoneDirector. Centralized management and automatic, real-time optimization of entire WLAN
Distributed forwarding architecture
Maximizes data throughput by sending all data traffi c directly from the
access points to the wired network
Flexible deployment options
The ZoneDirector interacts with existing network and security infrastructure and provides dynamic RF management across APs to eliminate AP placement issues
Triple play ready
The smart antenna array and precision Quality of Service (QoS) support
within the ZoneFlex APs enable the reliable transport of voice, video
and data traffic
Automatic user security
Dynamic PSK eliminates the requirement to configure and update individual PC client devices with unique encryption keys. Dynamic VLAN
assignment seamlessly extends existing security policies to the WLAN
Complete integration
Combines network management, dynamic RF management, location
management and AP control within a low-cost solution
Advanced WLAN features and functions
Redundant and secure, the Ruckus ZoneDirector provides
WLAN-wide network, security, RF and location management
within a single, easy-to-use and affordable WLAN system.
Advanced wireless networking features include rogue AP detection,
band steering, airtime fairness, WLAN groupings, role-based user policies, and client thresholds per AP

Simple to Manage
Once up and running, the ZoneDirector automatically manages the
ZoneFlex network of APs — automatically adjusting transmit power
levels and RF channel assignments as needed to prevent adjacent
APs from interfering and enable redundant coverage in the event
of an AP failure. Configuration changes can easily be applied to
multiple APs or the entire system simultaneously. A customizable
dashboard provides instant access to a variety of client and network information and events, and a real time heat map displays AP
locations and signal coverage, as well as your Ruckus Smart Mesh
Networking topology.
ZoneDirector Smart WLAN systems integrate a unique performance
utility from Ruckus called SpeedFlex™. Ruckus SpeedFlex allows
administrators to locally or remotely determine client Wi-Fi performance over the wireless LAN. With SpeedFlex, administrators can
now better plan, troubleshoot, monitor and measure WLAN performance, eliminating the need to use Internet-based speed tools that
often provide inaccurate results of the local Wi-Fi environment.

ZoneDirector 1000
Centralized Enterprise Smart WLAN Controller
The ZoneDirector 1000 provides
a detail map view that lets
administrators quickly see the Wi-Fi
network topology for all ZoneFlex
Smart Wi-Fi access points.
First-time users plug their computers into the LAN and
specify a URL that directs them to a captive web portal for a
one-time authentication. After successful authentication, the
ZoneDirector automatically configures the client system with the
designated SSID and a dynamically-generated encryption key.
The key is bound to the client, and can be removed upon expiration when the user or the user’s device is no longer trusted.
The Ruckus ZoneDirector centralizes authentication and authorization decisions for all APs, providing secure admission control
across the WLAN. It works with any backend authentication
database such as RADIUS and ActiveDirectory/LDAP and also
comes with an internal authentication database. Additionally,
clients can be dynamically assigned to a VLAN based on their
RADIUS attributes.
Smart Mesh Networking Increases Flexibility, Reduces Costs
Ruckus Smart Mesh Networking enables self-organizing and
self-healing WLAN deployment. It eliminates the need to run
Ethernet cables to every AP, allowing administrators to simply plug
in ZoneFlex APs to any power source and walk away. All configuration and management is delivered through the ZoneDirector Smart
WLAN controller. Smart meshing uses patented Smart Wi-Fi technology to extend range and control Wi-Fi signals to minimize internodal hops that degrade performance and automatically adapt
Wi-Fi connections between nodes to maintain ultra high reliability.
Avoid Interference, Maximize Performance and
Extend Reach with BeamFlex
Ruckus BeamFlex™, a patented Wi-Fi beam-steering technology, ensures predictable performance for multimedia traffic
applications and extends range to eliminate Wi-Fi deadspots.
With the ZoneDirector, the value of BeamFlex is extended
beyond a single access point to the system-wide WLAN and
smart wireless meshing.
The ZoneDirector automatically controls the channels assignments and transmit power levels of all ZoneFlex Smart Wi-Fi
APs. And with BeamFlex, the ZoneFlex system continuously
picks the best path for every packet, to both clients outside the
network and mesh APs inside the network, automatically avoiding interference to guarantee the highest quality of service.
SpeedFlex™ is a unique wireless performance test tool integrated within the ZoneFlex™ family of centralized controllers
that measures the Wi-Fi throughput of associated wireless
LAN clients.
