Ruckus Wireless unveiled the ZoneDirector 5000 (ZD5000), along with a collection of advanced capabilities within a new version of its ZoneFlex software (v9.2) for providing Wi-Fi access to diverse user groups across multiple locations. The new Ruckus ZoneFlex Smart Wi-Fi system adds essential hardware and software capabilities to scale, simplify and secure large Wi-Fi networks.

The ZD5000 is a controller-based system that can be flexibly deployed either in-line, or out of the data path, supporting up to 20,000 clients, 1,000 access points (APs), and 2,048 wireless LANs (WLANs). Additionally, Ruckus has increased the client capacity of its ZoneFlex dual-band 802.11n APs to support 256 concurrent clients per AP (256 clients per radio), making them a Wi-Fi solution for high-capacity, dense user environments where reliable Wi-Fi services and extended coverage are essential.

Among the first customers to deploy the new ZD5000 is NEBO School District in Utah. NEBO has deployed redundant ZD5000s to manage more than 625 Ruckus 802.11n APs across 43 different schools and six district sites.
