Ruckus Wireless now part of Brocade, today announced the ZoneFlex H510, a wall-plate access point (AP) featuring an integral wired switch and 802.11ac Wave 2 technology. The new AP is ideal for hotels, multi-dwelling units and student housing where Wi-Fi is often a cost of doing business due to the ever-increasing number of wireless connected devices in these environments.
Greg Beach, Ruckus Wireless vice president of product management, said, “We see the benefits of 802.11ac Wave 2 technology in delivering optimal performance and reliability in the face of an increasing number of guest devices and in-room applications.
