T300 Series Outdoor Access Point

Outdoor 802.11ac Wi-Fi Access Point

Modern users expect reliable wireless connectivity—anywhere, anytime. But in crowded outdoor venues with thousands of users and constant RF noise and interference, they often get poor coverage, dropped connections, and miniscule data rates.

The Ruckus T300 Series of 802.11ac access points provides consistent, reliable Wi-Fi in crowded outdoor venues, at an affordable price. Available with internal omni-directional antennas or optional external 5GHz antenna support, the T300 Series uses patented Ruckus technologies to extend range, improve throughput, and deliver industry-leading 802.11ac performance to every connected client. At the same time, it’s designed for fast, simple installation with an ultra-lightweight, IP 67-rated enclosure that can stand up to the rigors of outdoor deployments.

Dynamic Pre-shared Key (DPSK)

Security and Onboarding

What it means:

Dynamic Pre-Shared Key (DPSK) is a Ruckus developed technology that provides secure access and simplicity by providing each device or user with a unique PSK credential. Traditional Pre-shared keys (PSK) are shared by all users on a WLAN, giving it inherent vulnerabilities. If the passphrase is compromised, traffic for the entire WLAN is subject to eavesdropping and decryption by any passive observer. Further, to maintain security, all devices on the WLAN will need to be re-provisioned—this is true for all forms of passphrase compromise, including intentional or unintentional sharing, cracking, or device theft. DPSK is a Ruckus extension to the standard by which each and every associated device is issued its own unique passphrase, which is used for authentication and to create encryption keys. By provisioning each device uniquely, you get the benefits of per-device or per-user credentials found in 802.1X, but you maintain the usability and network simplicity benefits of PSK. Credentials can be created and revoked individually, and controlled with expiration intervals. Each DPSK can also be tied to a unique role or policy (even on a single WLAN), such as VLAN, ACLs, rate limits, and more.

Why you should care:

DPSK strengthens the security of the wireless network by vastly reducing the attack footprint of PSKs. It also reduces IT overhead, adds policy flexibility, and improves administrator visibility and control.
