Product Family and Positioning
Its not possible to upgrade. Those APs will need to be replaced by new hardware
Perform a firmware upgrade when the wave 2 features are availabe
You can open up the AP and replace the radio chipset.
Use the Ruckus SWIPE tool to update the Access Point to 11ac wave 2 AP.
Only one radio can transmit at a time
It improve performance by terminating transmission as soon as a collision is detected, thus shortening the time required before a retry can be attempted.
All stations can hear traffic in the same segment / coverage boundary
Only station with correct address uses data. All others will ignore data.
Up to 8 spatial streams supported
80/160 Mhz channels
Dual band support
Yes. If accuracy is not important and only "Presence" is desired.
Yes. 1 AP can provides acuracy of between 5-8m. This level of accuracy is more than adequate for most deployments
No. Only 3 or more APs are required
Yes. 1 AP can provides acuracy of 8-15m. This level of accuracy is more than adequate for most deployments

- 67 dBm
Memory is improved from 128MB to 2GB RAM
Client support is now 2000.
More APs are supported. ZD1200 can support up to 100 APs
2 Core CPU is used.
Big Data and WiFi Analytic
Adapts automatically to environmental changes
More concurrent users per access point
Interference avoidance using ATEX certifed hardware
Stronger Wi-Fi signals at longer ranges
Look for ways to shrink the cell size and place the APs close to the users if possible.
Utilize both bands to maximise the AP radio resources
Need large number of APs to get the needed capacity
Statically mapped each AP with the right channel to ensure the full spectrum is being used.
