R510 Indoor Access Point

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

Small and midsize venues may host fewer users, but high-performance Wi-Fi is just as important to each and every one of them.  The Ruckus R510 802.11ac Wave 2 access point delivers the ideal combination of performance, reliability, and coverage for medium-density indoor locations, at a price you can afford.

Using the same patented technologies found in our premier high-density APs, the R510 delivers fast data rates up to 1200 Mbps, with industry-leading Wi-Fi intelligence to extend range and mitigate interference. It’s the perfect choice for enterprise branches, hotel and office building common areas, retail sites, and more.

Give your users the best Wi-Fi in the business, with the right feature set (and price tag) for midsize sites. 

Stunning Wi-Fi Performance
Provide a great user experience no matter how challenging the environment with BeamFlex+ adaptive antenna technology and a library of 64 directional antenna patterns.
Serve More Devices
Connect more devices simultaneously with two MU-MIMO spatial streams and concurrent dual-band 2.4/5GHz radios while enhancing non-Wave 2 device performance.
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.

BeamFlex Adaptive Antenna Technology

Performance Optimization

What it means:

Smart, compact adaptive antenna systems containing multiple elements that electrically manipulate antenna properties so as to create optimal antenna patterns for each device with which they communicate.

Why you should care:

Traditional wireless antennas are either “omnidirectional” (radiating signals in all directions) or “directional” (radiating signals in one direction). Ruckus BeamFlex Adaptive Antenna Technology takes a more adaptable approach. BeamFlex technology enables the antenna system within a Ruckus AP to continually sense and optimize for its environment.

This antenna system mitigates radio interference, noise and network performance issues, and improves application flows. The results:

  • Increased performance and range
  • Crystal clear video and voice communications
  • Maximized power efficiency

BeamFlex+ is an enhancement to Ruckus BeamFlex adaptive antenna technology by providing adaptive support to mobile devices. BeamFlex+ enables antennas to adapt to client device orientation in addition to client device location.

Dynamic Pre-shared Key (DPSK)

Wired and Wireless Network Security

What it means:

Dynamic Pre-Shared Key (DPSK) is a Ruckus-patented technology that delivers secure network access by providing each device and user with a unique login credential. Users access the wired/wireless network using their own personal key, which is provided as part of the network onboarding process. In contrast, with conventional pre-shared keys (PSKs), multiple, or even all, users share the same key.

Why you should care:

Traditional pre-shared keys create a security hole in network defenses because multiple users access the network with the same key. Conventional PSKs do not give IT teams visibility and control over devices on the network or the ability to map access policies to specific users and devices. Users readily share conventional PSKs with others, and IT cannot revoke them for one user without revoking access for all. DPSKs address the security flaws of conventional PSKs to make users, devices, data and the network more secure.

DPSKs are an alternative to digital certificates that provide similar security benefits. They are appropriate in cases where user experience considerations make it impractical to install a digital certificate on the device. This applies in cases where the user will only need network access for a limited time—for example, in the case of guest users.
