ZoneFlex™ 7300 Series
Single/Dual-Band 802.11n Smart Wi-Fi Access Points
High Performance, 802.11n Mid-Range Smart Wi-Fi
Access Points with Adaptive Antenna Technology
The Ruckus ZoneFlex 7300 series delivers high-performance
and reliable 802.11n wireless networking at the industry’s
most affordable price point.
Unlike any other 802.11n wireless solution in its class, the
ZoneFlex 7300 combines patented adaptive antenna
technology and automatic interference mitigation to deliver
consistent, predictable performance at extended ranges
with 4dBi of signal gain and 10dB of interference rejection.
The ZoneFlex 7300 delivers a 2- to 4-fold increase in signal
range with lower packet error rates while reducing the number of APs required to deliver dependable Wi-Fi service.
Each ZoneFlex 7300 integrates Ruckus-patented BeamFlex,
a software-controlled, high gain antenna array that continually forms and directs each 802.11n packet over the
best performing signal path. And because the ZoneFlex
7300 automatically adapts to environmental changes, once
deployed, enterprises never have to worry about constant
site surveys as the environment changes.
A sleek and low-profile design, the ZoneFlex 7300 was
purpose-built for cost-minded enterprises requiring reliable high speed client connectivity. It is ideal for a variety
of enterprise and hotspot environments including hotels,
schools, retail outlets, branch offices and public venues.
Offered in single and dual band models, the ZoneFlex 7300
series can be deployed as a standalone access point or as
part of the centrally-controlled Smart Wireless LAN with the
Ruckus ZoneDirector. The ZoneFlex 7300 can also be easily
deployed using Smart Mesh Networking to extend Wi-Fi
services in locations where Ethernet cabling is not available
or cost prohibitive.
Standard 802.3af power over Ethernet (PoE) leverages
existing PoE switches eliminating costly and cumbersome
upgrades.

ZoneFlex™ 7300 Series
Single/Dual-Band 802.11n Smart Wi-Fi Access Points
Patented BeamFlex™ Technology Extends Signal
Range, Improves Stability of Client Connections
All ZoneFlex 7300 Smart Wi-Fi access points integrate a software-controlled smart antenna array that delivers 4dBi of signal
gain and 10dB of interference rejection. This allows a
2 to 4x improvement in signal range and a reduction in packet
loss from the ability to automatically avoid interference and
obstacles.
Advanced WLAN Applications
with Smart/OS
When used with the Ruckus ZoneDirector
Smart WLAN controller, each ZoneFlex
7300 supports a wide range of value-added
applications such as guest networking,
Smart Wireless Meshing, Dynamic PSK,
hotspot authentication, wireless intrusion
detection and many more. With Smart/OS, up to 32 discrete
WLANs can be created and mapped to the same or different APs or VLANs. In a centrally managed configuration, the
ZoneFlex 7300 works with a wide range of authentication servers including Microsoft’s Active Directory, LDAP, and RADIUS.
High-gain
directional antenna
elements not
only delivers
signal gain but
also interference
avoidance for
range extension,
reliability and high
data rates
Two 10/100 Mbps and one 802.3af
PoE 10/100/1000 Mbps Ethernet
port support
More than 300 potential
antenna combinations can be
chosen for high availability
of Wi-Fi
Flexible Deployment Options
ZoneFlex 7300 APs can be deployed in as a standalone AP or
as part of a centrally managed wireless LAN using ZoneDirector
Smart WLAN controllers. ZoneFlex 7300’s can be deployed
across any L2/L3 network and/or meshed without Ethernet
cabling. When used with the ZoneDirector, each ZoneFlex
7300 is automatically configured through the network making
deployment quick and easy.
Complete Local and Remote Management
Each ZoneFlex 7300 can be
managed as a standalone
AP through a Web-based
GUI, using SNMP or through
the Ruckus FlexMaster Wi-Fi
remote management system.
Local management can also be
performed using the ZoneDirector
Smart WLAN controller. FlexMaster
is a LINUX-based software platform
that uses industry-standard protocols
to perform bulk configuration, fault
detection, monitoring and a wide range of troubleshooting
capabilities over a wire area connection. The ZoneDirector
enables local management and control of APs, adding valueadded services such as transmit power and channel management, guest networking and meshing.
