Ruckus Wireless launches long-range Wi-Fi bridge system


Ruckus Wireless has announced the ZoneFlex P300 bridge system, an outdoor Smart Wi-Fi bridging system. The ZoneFlex P300 was designed for high-density user environments such as business parks, school campuses, urban centers, warehouses and other outdoor venues.

Assuming line of sight, the device provides a range of 8 kilometers if internal antennas are used. If external antennas are used, the range can be up to 20 kilometers.

Ruckus Wireless stated that each ZoneFlex P300 bridge has a 5 GHz, dual-polarized directional antenna system that can provide up to 14dBi of antenna gain. The Wi-Fi technology is 802.11ac and two simultaneous streams can be used.

The system has an MSRP of $1,195 or $2,395 for a pre-provisioned pair. Release
