ZoneDirector 1100
™
Enterprise-Class Smart Wireless LAN Controller
“IT Lite” Full-featured
Smart Wireless LAN Controller
BENEFITS
The Ruckus Wireless ZoneDirector 1100 is Ruckus’ centrally
managed Smart Wireless LAN (WLAN) system developed
specifically for small-to-medium enterprises (SMEs) and hot
zone operators.
Simple to use, simple to manage
With simplicity and ease of use in mind, the Ruckus
ZoneDirector 1100 is purpose-built to address the gap
between standalone, feature-deficient access points (APs)
that must be individually managed and the costly, complex
high-end enterprise systems that are overkill for most small
business environments.
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.
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 1100 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 1100 integrates the Ruckus Smart/OS application engine that delivers advanced features such as smart
wireless meshing, high availability, hot spot authentication,
elegant guest networking and dynamic Wi-Fi security.
The Ruckus ZoneDirector 1100 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.
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.
Centralized management, quick setup, IT-Lite and automatic, real-time
optimization of entire WLAN
IT Lite deployment in 5 minutes or less
Advanced WLAN features and functions
Advanced wireless networking features include rogue AP detection,
interference detection, band steering, airtime fairness, role-based user
policies, per-user rate-limiting, hotspot and guest networking services
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. Adaptable architecture with Hybrid Mesh extends the
wireless network through Ethernet-connected APs, increasing system
performance through better spatial reuse.
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
Easy monitoring and troubleshooting
Customizable dashboard provides comprehensive at-a-glance network
snapshot and allows drill down to troubleshoot wireless problems
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
Complete integration
Combines network management, dynamic RF management, location
management and AP control within a low-cost solution

Simple to Deploy
The Ruckus ZoneDirector integrates seamlessly with existing
switches, firewalls, authentication servers and other network infrastructure. The ZoneDirector can be placed within any Layer 2/3 network. Ruckus ZoneFlex APs (whether wired or mesh APs using Smart
Mesh Networking) automatically discover the Ruckus ZoneDirector,
self configure and become instantly manageable. Ruckus Smart
Redundancy ensures high network availability and is easy to use
with automatic synchronization of configuration and authorized
users between ZoneDirectors.
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 avoid interference,
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 1100
Centralized Enterprise Smart WLAN Controller
The ZoneDirector 1100 provides
a detail map view that lets
administrators quickly see the Wi-Fi
network topology for all ZoneFlex
Smart Wi-Fi access points.
802.1x support and dynamic VLAN assignment capabilities, the
ZoneDirector 1100 supports a patent-pending Dynamic PreShared Key (PSK) capability that streamlines WLAN security.
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.
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.
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. APs can also be daisy-chained to mesh
APs to extend the mesh and take advantage of spatial reuse.
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.
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.
