Ruckus introduces Wi-Fi wall switch for hotels
Ruckus Wireless has introduced the first Wi-Fi Wall Switch — ZoneFlex 7025 — that integrates high speed 802.11n Wi-Fi technology with wired Ethernet ports into an inconspicuous, low-profile wall jack that fits into any standard US or European electrical junction box. The company has also unveiled its new ZoneSwitch line of affordable 802.3at/af power over Ethernet (POE) switches.
The Ruckus Wi-Fi Wall Switch is meant for hotels looking to converge their wired and wireless networks into a single infrastructure capable of reliably connecting in-room IP-based devices and services. With such a solution, hotels can offer multiple, high-value, IP-based services over a single wired/wireless high performance network and at low cost per room.
According to Ruckus Wireless, hotels that have deployed an extensive wired Ethernet network often need more ports to connect new IP-enabled devices and support new multimedia services. Ethernet switches can be installed in guest rooms, but this requires more power, can be disruptive and often involves custom furniture design to hide the devices.
The Ruckus ZoneFlex Wi-Fi Wall Switch is also ideal for filling ‘void areas’ within hotels and schools such as corners of buildings and conference rooms.
