Product Description

The Ruckus MediaFlex Router is the first-of-its-kind wireless multimedia service platform that reliably distributes multimedia content over standard 802.11 Wi-Fi to every corner of the home. It is a complete solution for video-grade, high performance wireless networking, the Ruckus system includes the Ruckus MediaFlex 802.11b/g Multimedia Router and Ruckus MediaFlex Multimedia Adapter. The system incorporates patent-pending BeamFlex and SmartCast technologies to guarantee optimal range and performance for concurrent video and data traffic.

BeamFlex is the world's first smart-MIMO antenna technology that automatically steers Wi-Fi signals around interference, picking the best and most reliable path for multimedia traffic - ensuring picture perfect transmission of delay sensitive traffic, such as IPTV.

SmartCast is the first-of-its-kind traffic engineering technology that classifies, prioritizes and optimises the delivery of multimedia traffic over standard 802.11 Wi-Fi.

Unlike any Wi-Fi system on the market, the Ruckus MediaFlex Router constantly monitors the wireless environment, steering RF signals around interference and prioritizing different traffic types for transmission over the air. With the Ruckus MediaFlex system, consumers now have complete freedom and flexibility to distribute and enjoy multimedia content anywhere in their homes - all without wires.

Attached to the broadband gateway, the Ruckus MediaFlex Router optimises all 802.11b/g devices in the home while enabling wireless video applications. The Ruckus MediaFlex Adapter provides video-grade, 802.11b/g connectivity to any Ethernet-equipped video server and video receiver, including Settop Boxes, Personal Video Recorders, Media Centres, Media Centre Extenders and Network Attached Storage.

A Ruckus-powered multimedia network is optimised to ensure transmission of 20 Mbps of guaranteed throughput for streaming video through out a typical 230 square meter home. The Ruckus MediaFlex system supports up to three simultaneous DVD-quality standard definition (SD) MPEG-2 IPTV video streams, six MPEG-4 SD streams or one to two high definition quality WMV streams while supporting concurrent data and voice applications.
