R500

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

With an explosion of new mobile devices and applications, even small and midsize venues now need big-league Wi-Fi. But finding the right balance between performance, features, and cost isn’t easy.

The Ruckus R500 802.11ac indoor access point delivers the ideal combination of capacity, reliability, and affordability for medium-density locations. It’s the only 802.11ac AP in its class that includes patented Ruckus antenna optimizations and interference mitigation technologies—the same ones used in our premier high-density APs—in a low-profile form factor designed and priced for smaller venues.

In small and midsize businesses, hotels, retail outlets, branches, and other medium-density venues, the R500 delivers consistently great Wi-Fi experiences—at a price that makes sense.

 

Stunning Wi-Fi Performance
Provide a great user experience no matter how challenging the environment with BeamFlex+ adaptive antenna technology and a library 64 directional antenna patterns.
Get Optimal Throughput
ChannelFly dynamic channel technology uses machine learning to automatically find the least congested channels. You always get the highest throughput the band can support.
Multiple Management Options
Manage the R500 from the cloud, or with on-premises physical/virtual appliances.
Better Mesh Networking
Reduce expensive cabling, and complex mesh configurations by checking a box with SmartMesh wireless meshing technology to dynamically create self-forming, self-healing mesh networks.
Expanded Backhaul
Pair two onboard 1GbE ports with link aggregation (LACP) to maximize throughput between the AP and wired switch.
More Than Wi-Fi
Enhance your network with Cloudpath security and management software, SPoT real-time Wi-Fi location engine and analytics software, and SCI network analytics.

Tecnología de antena adaptativa BeamFlex

Optimización del rendimiento

Qué significa:

Sistemas compactos e inteligentes de antenas adaptativas con varios elementos que manipulan eléctricamente las propiedades de las antenas de manera de crear patrones de antena óptimos para cada dispositivo con el que se comunican.

Por qué debe importarle:

Las antenas inalámbricas tradicionales son “omnidireccionales” (emiten señales en todas las direcciones) o “direccionales” (emiten señales en una dirección). La tecnología de antena adaptativa BeamFlex de Ruckus emplea un enfoque más adaptable. La tecnología BeamFlex permite que el sistema de antenas dentro de un PA de Ruckus detecte y se optimice continuamente para su entorno. Este sistema de antenas mitiga la interferencia de radio, el ruido y los problemas de rendimiento de red, y mejora los flujos de las aplicaciones. Los resultados son:

  • Rendimiento y rango mayores
  • Comunicaciones de video y de voz claras
  • Eficiencia energética maximizada

BeamFlex+ es una mejora de la tecnología de antena adaptativa BeamFlex de Ruckus, que brinda soporte adaptativo a dispositivos móviles. BeamFlex+ permite que las antenas se adapten a la orientación y a la ubicación de los dispositivos del cliente.
