Dual-Band 3x3:3 802.11n Smart Wi-Fi AP
The Industry’s Highest Capacity, Highest Performing
Three-Stream 802.11n AP
Ruckus ZoneFlex 7982 is the industry’s first dual-band, three-stream
802.11n access point that incorporates Ruckus-patented BeamFlex™
adaptive antenna arrays. Coupled with transmit beamforming (TxBF), when
available, the ZoneFlex 7982 delivers the highest throughput of any AP in
its class.
The ZoneFlex 7982 ensures the most reliable connectivity within
challenging and ever-changing RF environments. With BeamFlex, the
ZoneFlex 7982 offers a 2-4x increase in performance and range and is
capable of delivering up to 9 dB of signal-to-interference-plus-noise (SINR)
improvement and up to 15 dB of interference mitigation over other APs.
Capable of supporting 500 concurrent clients, the ZoneFlex 7982
simultaneously supports spatial multiplexing and BeamFlex to deliver the
best price/performance of any three-stream 802.11n AP.
With a stream throughput of 450 Mbps per radio, the ZoneFlex 7982
ensures maximum throughput to three-stream capable clients while also
improving single and dual-stream client performance. This is achieved
through the unique combination of adaptive antenna technology, predictive
channel selection and adaptive polarization diversity. Backward compatible
with all existing clients, the ZoneFlex 7982 can function either as a
standalone AP or as part of centrally-managed Wireless LAN with the
Ruckus ZoneDirector Smart WLAN controller.
ZoneFlex 7982 is purpose-built for high-capacity, high performance and
interference-laden environments such as airports, public venues, hotels,
universities and conference centers. The perfect choice for data-intensive
streaming multimedia applications, the ZoneFlex 7982 delivers picture
perfect HD-quality IP video while supporting VoIP and data applications
that have stringent quality of service requirements.
Smart Meshing makes the ZoneFlex 7982 ideal for reliably extending Wi-Fi
services to areas where cabling Ethernet isn’t possible or economical —
saving time and money.

Smart Wi-Fi AP
Patented BeamFlex technology extends signal range,
improves stability of client connections
The ZoneFlex 7982 integrates a patented software-controlled
adaptive antenna array that delivers additional signal gain per
radio chain. As BeamFlex adapts to client locations and antenna
polarity, the smart antenna array optimizes the RF energy
toward client on a per packet basis. This allows for up to 4x
improvement in signal range and a reduction in packet loss from
the ability to automatically mitigate interference and obstacles.
By combining BeamFlex with the transmit-based beamforming,
the ZoneFlex 7982 is capable of delivering up to 9 dB of SINR
gain while offering concurrent support for spatial multiplexing.

Adaptive polarization diversity for unmatched reception of
mobile client signals
In dynamic indoor and urban Wi-Fi environments device
orientation constantly changes. This affects the polarization of
the transmissions. Traditional Wi-Fi antennas are static in nature
and only listen using one polarization. This prevents them from
capturing the full signal from mobile client devices. The Ruckus
7982 listens in all polarizations simultaneously. This results in a
over 2x (4 dB) gain to mobile devices with weak transmitters.

When used with the Ruckus ZoneDirector Smart WLAN
controller, the ZoneFlex 7982 supports a wide range of
value-added applications such as guest networking, Smart
Wireless Meshing, Dynamic PSK, hotspot authentication,
wireless intrusion prevention and many more. WLANs can also
be grouped and shared by specific APs. In a centrally managed
configuration, the ZoneFlex 7982 works with various authentication servers including AD, LDAP, and RADIUS.
