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 3000
Centralized Enterprise Smart WLAN Controller
The ZoneDirector 3000 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 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 selfhealing 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
inter-nodal 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 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 channel assignments and transmit power 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.
