Ruckus Wireless has just announced their latest 802.11ac access point along with the expansion of their Ruckus Unleashed series. This entry-level AP is meant to make it easier for small businesses to deploy high-performance wireless that they can afford and is easy to deploy. These new editions expand the options available for small businesses and are:

  • Ruckus ZoneFlex™ R310 is an entry-level, enterprise-class 802.11ac access point that features a wide range of Ruckus performance-enhancing features. The Ruckus R310 has a sleek, low-profile form factor and delivers superior dual-band performance for organizations that rely on Wi-Fi to run their business.
  • Ruckus ZoneFlex R310 Unleashed is a controller-less version of the R310. Unleashed eliminates the need for separate controllers and access point licenses, significantly reducing upfront costs. A simple web interface featuring a step-by-step set-up guide enables non-IT users to configure Wi-Fi in just 60 seconds and deploy in minutes.
  • Ruckus ZoneFlex T300 Series Unleashed are controller-less versions of Ruckus’ existing T300 access points, which provide dual-band 802.11ac access for outdoor deployments. The T300 series features a lightweight, low-profile design for easy installation, and will now allow small businesses to add outdoor connectivity to a controller-less Wi-Fi environment.

New features have also been released to simplify the management of controller-less networks. Ruckus is introducing SmartMesh which elminates the need for for small businesses to run ethernet wiring to all access points.

“Small and mid-size organizations increasingly rely on Wi-Fi to engage customers, deliver services and run their businesses,” said Kash Shaikh, vice president of marketing and business development at Ruckus. “Our new products help level the playing field for small businesses, local retailers, coffee shops and restaurants, so they can deliver a high-quality Wi-Fi experience indoors and outdoors – with a much lower total cost of ownership.”

Ruckus Unleashed will now be available with three indoor access points – ZoneFlex R310 ($495); ZoneFlex R500 ($645); and ZoneFlex R600 ($795) – and one family of outdoor access points (ZoneFlex T300, T300E, T301N, and T301S). ZoneFlex R310 is available now. The Unleashed versions of ZoneFlex R310 and T300 series will be available in March 2016. All of these access points are also available as part of a controller-based network managed by Ruckus’ ZoneDirector™ and SmartZone™ controllers. These controller platforms include user access controls, guest networking functions, advanced Wi-Fi security and traffic management.
