T310 Series Outdoor Access Point

Outdoor 2x2:2 2.4/5GHz 802.11ac Wave 2 Wi-Fi access points with omni and directed antennae

At stadiums, transit hubs, smart cities, and other crowded outdoor public venues, users want the same fast, reliable Wi-Fi connectivity they expect in their homes or offices. For operators, however, delivering that can be immensely challenging—and expensive.

The Ruckus T310 Series of 802.11ac Wave 2 access points provides industry-leading Ruckus wireless performance in an economical, industrial-grade form factor designed for crowded outdoor locations. These ultra-lightweight, low-profile APs feature internal omni-directional or high-gain directional antennas for specific coverage, eliminating the need for bulky panel antennas and confusing and expensive external RF cabling.

Choose from either omni, 30-degree narrow beam or 120-degree sector antennas to enable fast, low-cost installation, extended range, and best-in-class throughput in the most challenging outdoor environments.

The T310d, s, n models have a USB 2.0 port to support additional RF technologies such as Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) and optional DC power source for use with solar cell deployment.

ChannelFly Advanced Channel Selection

Performance Optimization

What it means:

The ChannelFly dynamic channel management technology in Ruckus APs improves wireless performance by dynamically switching a client to a better channel when the one it’s using starts to degrade.

Why you should care:

Most modern WLAN products can change a client’s channel when the one it’s using gets clogged with interference or too many devices. But there’s no point in switching channels unless you know the new one will actually provide more capacity. And most channel management strategies don’t do a great job of predicting. ChannelFly technology assesses all available channels to measure the real-world capacity improvement each one can provide before it directs the AP to switch channels.

ChannelFly technology was originally developed for use in carrier Wi-Fi environments, where channels are highly congested. Even in these dense public settings, it delivers multi-fold improvements in AP and network capacity—within seconds, automatically.

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.
