and secure WLAN that can be easily deployed, centrally managed and
The ZoneDirector 1100 is also perfect for operators who want to offer business
class hotspot services such as voice over Wi-Fi, IP-based video, secure
enterprise access and tiered Wi-Fi services in venues such as hotels, airports,
schools and public buildings.
The ZoneDirector 1100 integrates the Ruckus Smart/OS application engine that
delivers advanced features such as smart wireless meshing, high availability,
hotspot authentication, elegant guest networking and dynamic Wi-Fi security.
The Ruckus ZoneDirector 1100 can be deployed and operated by non-wireless
experts and installed quickly and easily. Any organization with limited IT staff and
budget can create a robust and secure multimedia WLAN in a matter of minutes.
The Ruckus ZoneDirector easily integrates with network, security and authentication
infrastructure already in place and is easily configured through a pointand-click
web-based wizard. Ruckus ZoneFlex APs automatically discover and
