Take the Guesswork Out of Planning a World Class Wireless LAN with a Smarter Wi-Fi RF Simulation Tool

Accurate network planning is one of most critical steps to successful Wi-Fi deployment, while poor planning leads to over-spending on infrastructure – resulting in spotty coverage and unhappy users.

ZonePlanner is ideal for designing and estimating Wi-Fi deployment headaches before the installation of any APs. With ZonePlanner, network managers can more easily and accurately plan, design, deploy and manage Ruckus Smart WLAN networks in any indoor environment.

ZonePlanner integrates directional, high-gain antenna patterns derived from BeamFlex, the Ruckus-patented and award-winning smart antenna array, and combines them with AirMagnet’s industry-leading planning tool.

Unlike other Wi-Fi APs on the market that use omni-directional dipole antennas to blindly radiate Wi-Fi energy in all directions, each Ruckus ZoneFlex AP integrates a high-gain directional smart antenna array that constantly focuses and directs Wi-Fi energy over the best performing signal paths to increase throughput and channel capacity while also significantly improving reliability and range.

By combining these state-of-the-art RF controls with powerful new planning tools, designing a world-class wireless LAN has never been easier.

SmartCell 8800

Carrier-class 2.4/5GHz 802.11n Outdoor Access Point with integrated small cell option designed specifically for the challenges facing mobile operators in deploying HetNets in high-density environments

The Ruckus SmartCell™ 8800 Series represents a completely new class of outdoor access point (AP) technology designed specifically to address the capacity and siting challenges mobile operators face in deploying HetNets in dense urban environments. It is the first high-performance dual-band 802.11n outdoor AP with integrated LTE (or 3G) small cell support. By integrating this capability into the SC 8800, the mobile operator can provide both a Wi-Fi and LTE (or 3G) underlay to offload heavily congested macro cellular networks in dense urban environments.

Site acquisition is always an issue when deploying small cells, and this is made much easier by integrating a small cell into a Wi-Fi access point as the latter is an operator neutral solution that is preferred by most site owners. The SC 8800 can also provide wireless backhaul using Wi-Fi technology in the 5 GHz band. Other capabilities include support for AC power, power-over-Ethernet, integrated GPS receiver, integrated spectrum analysis, BeamFlex adaptive antenna technology, and much more.

A key part of the Ruckus value proposition is our BeamFlex technology with integrated antennas, which steers RF energy toward the user that it is communicating with and away from all other AP’s in close proximity. This increases the gain by as much as 6 dB and the interference mitigation by as much as 15 dB. The latter is essential in most high-density deployments where interference is almost always the limiting factor.

SmartCell 8800 access points can be centrally managed from the mobile packet core using the SmartCell Gateway 200, the industry’s most scalable and versatile 3GPP compatible WLAN Gateway. The SCG 200 also supports capabilities like Hotspot 2.0 which will be essential in the rollout of carrier-class Wi-Fi solutions.


Integrated BeamFlex™ Smart Antenna Technol​ogy

  • BeamFlex™ support for up to 6 dB of signal gain and 15 dB of interference mitigation
  • SmartMesh™ support for wireless backhaul when deploying outdoors on street furniture
  • 2.4/5 GHz antennas are integrated for a minimal form factor, which is essential in many outdoor deployments. There is also support for external antennas.
  • 120° antenna beam width

Integrated Small Cell

  • LTE (or 3G) small cell can be integrated into the unit
  • Small cell traffic can be backhaul via SmartMesh wireless technology
  • Small cell can be powered from the SC8800
  • By integrating the small cell into a Wi-Fi it makes site acquisition much easier

Hardened enclosure for harsh outdoor environments

  • IP-67 water and dust proof plastic enclosure with flexible wall, pole or ceiling mounting options ensures that no distortion of Wi-Fi signals is introduced
  • AC power when mounting on light poles
  • Power-over-Ethernet when mounting in areas that have Ethernet connectivity
  • -40° C to +55°C operating temperature range

Management Support

  • Managed via the ZoneDirector™ or the SmartCell Gateway 200, which also provides support for integration into the mobile packet core
  • Self-optimizing network support via ChannelFly™

SmartCell Gateway 200

The Industry’s Most Scalable and Versatile WLAN Platform

The SmartCell™ Gateway (SCG) 200 represents the first in a new category of scalable and versatile WLAN controllers with support for 3GPP compatible WLAN gateway functionality. It has been designed to eliminate the difficulties operators are experiencing with building and managing large-scale Wi-Fi RANs and integrating them into the mobile packet core. The latter is required for a truly scalable heterogeneous network (HetNet) deployment. Capabilities include:

  • Massively Scalable WLAN Controller
  • Support for WLAN Gateway Functionality per 3GPP Standards
  • Integrated Element Management System Support
  • Support for Hotspot 2.0 functionality


Large-Scale Access Point Controller

    • ​The SCG-200 offers one of the industry’s most scalable WLAN controller architectures, through a unique, dynamically scalable clustering model that maintains carrier-class availability and resiliency through N+1 redundancy and hot-swappable components. An SCG-200 cluster can support tens of thousands of Ruckus Smart Wi-Fi APs and hundreds of thousands of concurrent Wi-Fi subscribers, with an aggregate throughput of 20Gbps per 2RU’s of rack space. The SCG’s carrier-class element management system (EMS) can be integrated into an operator’s central NMS via standard data exchange interfaces, providing feature-rich management of access points, such as RF management, load balancing, adaptive meshing and backhaul optimization.

WLAN Gateway Support

    • The SCG 200 can provide Trusted WLAN Gateway functionality per 3GPP TS 23.402 (June 2012). Trusted WLAN Gateway functionality allows a Wi-Fi RAN to connect to a P-GW (or GGSN) in the mobile packet core over industry standard interfaces and using standard protocols like GTP and PMIP. This approach utilizes 802.1x/EAP for secure authentication and 802.11i for Wi-Fi airlink encryption. These protocols are supported on all smartphones, as they are required as part of the Wi-Fi Alliance’s WPA2®-certification program. The SCG 200 can also directly interface with mobile packet core AAA or HLR/HSS systems for client authentication and policy setting.

Local Breakout

    • The SCG 200 can also offload traffic directly to the Internet. This would usually be the case when the traffic is not SIM-based, and would not benefit from being backhauled to the mobile packet core. Examples here include tablets and laptops, which in most cases do not have cellular modems. Local breakout requires that selected services be performed at the SCG 200, most of which would normally be provided in the mobile packet core.

Carrier-class Element Management System

  • ​ The SCG 200 provides an integrated carrier-class element management system (EMS) that can be used for rapid deployment and eliminates the need for separate and expensive management systems. The built-in EMS provides user-friendly full-fledged FCAPS support and can be easily integrated with existing OSS/BSS systems via a variety of interfaces ranging from traditional SNMP or CLI based interfaces to web programming friendly secure API based methods (RESTful JSON).
