HIGH PERFORMANCE 802.11AC WAVE 2 INTEGRATED WIRED/ WIRELESS WALL SWITCH
The ZoneFlex™ H510 is the industry’s first Wave 2 802.11ac wired and wireless wall switch using Ruckus’ patented BeamFlex+ adaptive antenna technology to deliver high-speed 802.11ac Wi-Fi in an ultra-sleek, low-profile design that can be discretely installed over a standard electrical junction box. Ideal for offering converged services in hotel guest rooms, student residences, and multi-dwelling units, the ZoneFlex H510 provides an easy way to offer multiple connections in a single room without multiple cables.
The ZoneFlex H510 supports Multi-User MIMO (MU-MIMO) as a Wave 2 solution and can increase network throughput by transmitting to two Wave 2 clients at the same instant in time. This efficient utilization of the Wi-Fi channel boosts performance for Wave 2 clients but also frees up airtime for all clients, which means even non-Wave 2 clients see a performance benefit.
The “mobile device ready” ZoneFlex H510 with BeamFlex+ adapts in real time to client device location and physical orientation, delivering consistent Wi-Fi performance. The BeamFlex+ adaptive antenna system of the ZoneFlex H510 is optimized to deliver best-in-class Wi-Fi coverage and performance in hotel guest rooms and MDU residences.
Equipped with four Ethernet ports for in-room access, the ZoneFlex H510 can be used to connect a range of wired network devices such as IPTV set top boxes, IP telephones, or networked minibars while simultaneously providing dual band 802.11ac wireless LAN coverage. An IEEE 802.3af-compliant Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) port on the H510 allows devices such as IP telephones to be powered directly from the wall switch. The H510 itself may be powered via standard PoE or a DC power adapter.
The ZoneFlex H510 offers maximum flexibility and future-proofed utility. It is designed to securely support future add-on radio modules for wireless connectivity beyond best-in-class Wi-Fi. The cable pathways at the rear, support legacy cabling such as RG6 or CAT3/CAT5. Existing services such as video and voice over Ethernet can co-exist within the same junction box, reducing both installation time and construction costs. The H510 can be deployed as a standalone device or centrally managed by SmartZone, ZoneDirector, or FlexMaster management platforms.
