The Ruckus Wireless ZoneDirector 1200 is Ruckus' centrally managed Smart Wireless LAN (WLAN) system developed specifically for small-to-medium enterprises (SMEs).

  • Simple to deploy
  • Simple to manage
  • Simple to secure
  • Avoid interference, maximize performance and extend reach with BeamFlex
  • Smart Mesh Networking increases flexibility and reduces costs
  • 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 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 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.
  • Simple to secure
    The ZoneDirector 1200 provides innovative techniques that simplify and automate Wi-Fi security. In addition to enterprise-class 802.1x support and dynamic VLAN assignment capabilities, the ZoneDirector 1200 supports a patent-pending Dynamic Pre-Shared 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.
  • 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 Smart Wi-Fi APs. And with BeamFlex, the 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 and reduces costs
    Ruckus Smart Mesh Networking enables self-organizing and self-healing WLAN deployment. It eliminates the need to run Ethernet cables to every AP, allowing administrators to simply plug in Ruckus 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 ultrahigh reliability.
