    Hi Disease,

    The 7300 series Dual band and Single band AP's are not only more cost effective than the older model 7942 and 7962 AP's but also benefit from more antenna's and a lower profile ,

    I have also below copied some marketing infomation for you,

    The Ruckus ZoneFlex 7300 series delivers high-performance
    and reliable 802.11n wireless networking at the industry’s
    most affordable price point.
    Unlike any other 802.11n wireless solution in its class, the
    ZoneFlex 7300 combines patented dynamic beamforming
    and automatic interference mitigation to deliver consistent,
    predictable performance at extended ranges with 4dBi of
    signal gain and 10dB of interference rejection.
    The ZoneFlex 7300 delivers a 2- to 4-fold increase in signal
    range with lower packet error rates while reducing the number
    of APs required to deliver dependable Wi-Fi service.
    Each ZoneFlex 7300 integrates Ruckus-patented BeamFlex,
    a software-controlled, high gain antenna array that continually
    forms and directs each 802.11n packet over the
    best performing signal path. And because the ZoneFlex
    7300 automatically adapts to environmental changes, once
    deployed, enterprises never have to worry about constant
    site surveys as the environment changes.
    A sleek and low-profile design, the ZoneFlex 7300 was
    purpose-built for cost-minded enterprises requiring reliable
    high speed client connectivity. It is ideal for a variety
    of enterprise and hotspot environments including hotels,
    schools, retail outlets, branch offices and public venues.
    Offered in single and dual band models, the ZoneFlex 7300
    series can be deployed as a standalone access point or as
    part of the centrally-controlled Smart Wireless LAN with the
    Ruckus ZoneDirector. The ZoneFlex 7300 can also be easily
    deployed using Smart Mesh Networking to extend Wi-Fi
    services in locations where Ethernet cabling is not available
    or cost prohibitive.
    Standard 802.3af power over Ethernet (PoE) leverages
    existing PoE switches eliminating costly and cumbersome

    Best-in-class performance at lowest cost
    Unprecedented price/performance with extended range at the
    industry’s most affordable price point for both single and dual-band
    Extended range requires fewer APs
    Dynamic beamforming delivers a 2x to 4x increase in Wi-Fi signal
    coverage minimizing the number of APs required to service any area
    Wire-like wireless reliability
    Patented smart antenna array, beamforming and Quality of Service
    technologies combine to avoid interference and minimize packet loss
    Sleek, low profile enclosure for ease-of-deployment
    Aesthetically-pleasing design fits almost anywhere
    Super simple configuration and management
    The industry’s simplest configuration and management through
    a Web-based wizard and automated deployment capabilities
    Flexible deployment options
    Standalone or controller-based deployment
    Smart wireless meshing
    When used with a ZoneDirector Smart WLAN controller, the ZoneFlex
    7300 easily extends Wi-Fi services to areas where Ethernet cabling isn’t
    available, possible or cost effective
    Investment protection for legacy Wi-Fi networks
    Compatible with existing wireless investments, the ZoneFlex 7300 series
    enhances performance and range for legacy 802.11a/b/g clients
    Hassle free migration to higher speed Wi-Fi
    Support for standard 802.3af power over Ethernet allows enterprises
    to use existing PoE switches without costly upgrades
    Multiple Ethernet ports and optional USB connector
    Three Ethernet ports enable connectivity of wired devices, an optional
    USB connector can be used for WAN resiliency using a 3G dongle

    Single (2.4GHz) and dual-band • (5GHz/2.4GHz) options
    • Dynamic beamforming and advanced RF management
    • Up to 4dBi signal gain / 10dB interference rejection
    • Automatic interference avoidance, optimized for
