Best Price Performance Dual-Band 802.11n SME Access Point
Cost-minded small and medium enterprises now have a sleek and low-profile AP for delivering high-performance and reliable 802.11n wireless networking at the industry’s most affordable price point relative to performance.
The ZoneFlex 7321 is capable of running on either 2.4GHz or 5GHz with a click of a button. Performance is enhance by up to 3dB with transmit beamforming capable clients. Performance is further enhanced by ChannelFly, Ruckus’ unique channel selection approach that increases capacity by up to 50 percent over similar products from other vendors.
The ZoneFlex 7321 is the industry’s most affordable dual-stream entry-level 802.11n access point. The ZoneFlex 7321 is designed primarily for emerging markets and single AP deployments where the demand for mobile Internet services is rising but also where tighter economic constraints dictate a balance toward lower cost over sheer performance.
Weighing only 7 ounces, the Ruckus ZoneFlex 7321 is a two spatial stream (2×2:2), multi-band selectable access point (AP) that delivers the highest performance at the most competitive price point in the market.
The ZoneFlex 7321 comes with a myriad of advanced features that maximizes Wi-Fi performance and capacity including bandsteering, airtime fairness, and capacity-driven auto channel selection (ChannelFly™). ChannelFly has been tested and demonstrated to increase capacity up to 50 percent over other vendors. Unlike other APs in its class, ZoneFlex 7321 also supports transmit beamforming (TxBF) to increase signal gain of up to 3dB.
The ZoneFlex 7321 supports up to 256 concurrent clients and can be deployed as a standalone wireless router in single AP environments such as a small business, remote office, or hotspot locations, or as part of a centrally managed Ruckus Smart WLAN.
Easy to Deploy
The ZoneFlex 7321 is easily managed directly using the Web GUI, through any ZoneDirector controller, FlexMaster or via SNMP. With a limited lifetime warranty, the ZoneFlex 7321 supports 802.3af PoE or DC power along with integrated mounting for easy installation. Used either as a standalone AP with router functionality or as a controller-based deployment with any Ruckus ZoneDirector, the ZoneFlex 7321 also has a simple web based wizard that can configure multiple APs in minutes. Because of the high performance through advanced features, meshing is extremely easy, reliable, and less costly than meshing with other vendors.
