R610 Indoor Access Point

Indoor 802.11ac Wave 2 Wi-Fi Access Point for Dense Device Environments

Busy indoor locations like classrooms, retail venues, and branch offices can be the most challenging Wi-Fi environments. Dozens of users share the same crowded RF spectra, all expecting fast, reliable connectivity. How can you deliver high-end wireless experiences without paying high-end prices?

The Ruckus R610 delivers the right combination of performance and affordability for medium-density locations. It provides fast 802.11ac data rates (up to 1900Mbps), with patented Ruckus Wi-Fi intelligence to support dozens of users with guaranteed throughput. Easily support online digital learning deployments with 30+ students per classroom, university lecture halls serving HD video streams to dozens of devices, and more—at a price you can afford. 

Test 2 – Slall-Free Video Results

Ruckus was one of only two vendors able to deliver stall-free streaming video to 60 clients in an unloaded network scenario and the only vendor able to do so in every scenario, both with and without simultaneous network data loading. No other vendor came close.

Adaptive BeamFlex-Antennentechnologie

Leistungsoptimierung

Was es bedeutet:

Intelligente und kompakte adaptive Antennensysteme enthalten mehrere Komponenten, die die Antenneneigenschaften elektrisch beeinflussen, um so optimale Antennenmuster für alle Geräte zu erzeugen, mit denen sie kommunizieren.

Warum spielt das eine Rolle:

Herkömmliche Wireless-Antennen sind entweder „omnidirektional“ (senden Signale in alle Richtungen) oder „direktional“ (senden Signale in eine Richtung). Die adaptive BeamFlex-Antennentechnologie von Ruckus verfolgt einen stärker anpassungsfähigen Ansatz. Durch die BeamFlex-Technologie kann das Antennensystem in einem Ruckus-AP seine Umgebung fortlaufend abtasten und so die Leistung optimieren.

Dieses Antennensystem ist in der Lage, Funkstörungen, Rauschen und Probleme mit der Netzwerkleistung zu minimieren und Abläufe zu optimieren. Die Ergebnisse:

BeamFlex+ ist eine Erweiterung der adaptiven BeamFlex-Antennentechnologie von Ruckus, wobei mobile Geräte adaptiv unterstützt werden. Mit BeamFlex+ können Antennen sich nicht nur an die Position, sondern auch die Ausrichtung des Client-Geräts anpassen.

  • Bessere Leistung und Reichweite
  • Klarere Video- und Sprachübertragung
  • Maximale Leistungseffizienz

BeamFlex+ ist eine Erweiterung der adaptiven BeamFlex-Antennentechnologie von Ruckus, wobei mobile Geräte adaptiv unterstützt werden. Mit BeamFlex+ können Antennen sich nicht nur an die Position, sondern auch die Ausrichtung des Client-Geräts anpassen.
