Introducing The Ruckus R730 and More

Experience exceptional wireless performance in ultra-high density environments

The explosive growth of devices and applications has resulted in an insatiable demand for faster and better Wi-Fi. In support, the Ruckus R730 (802.11ax access point) and our Ultra-High Density Technology Suite offers what no-other vendor does well – a Wi-Fi solution that withstands the performance crunch in stadiums, lecture halls, convention centers, transit hubs and other public venues.

Does your current enterprise Wi-Fi network mitigate network degradation by transient clients within subway stations and mass-transit hubs? Does your enterprise Wi-Fi network intelligently minimize management traffic from both APs and devices that negatively affect user traffic within stadiums and lecture halls? Does your enterprise Wi-Fi network offer advanced hardware in addition to management and wireless machine-learning innovations?

Breathe easier and welcome to Ruckus.

802.11ax 

General Networking Technologies

What it means:

802.11ax, is the latest Wi-Fi IEEE wireless standard. This new standard brings significant advances on multiple fronts.  It expands the multiple input, multiple output (MU-MIMO) techniques to transmit simultaneously on up to eight streams compared to four streams on 802.11ac Wave 2. Furthermore, it piggybacks on MU-MIMO with Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access (OFDMA) technology allowing each MU-MIMO stream to be split into four additional streams, boosting effective average throughput per user by four times.

Introduction of new modulation and coding sets with 1024-QAM allows for more data to be transmitted per packet resulting in better throughput. It also improved the overall physical and MAC layer efficiency and improves the battery power management.

If earlier standard was like a long line of customers waiting in a grocery store for one cashier, MU-MIMO expanded it to four cashiers serving four lines of customers in 802.11ac. 802.11ax expanded it further to eight cashiers serving eight lines of customers. With OFDMA, now the cashier gets the ability to handle multiple customers at a time when they are free. Imagine, a cashier being able to serve the next customer, if the first customer decides to do a quick run back to pick something up.

Why you should care:

Wi-Fi is now being deployed at crowded stadiums or busy airports with hundreds of thousands of devices fighting for bandwidth which the current 802.11ac standard has challenges in supporting. 802.11ax increase the average throughput per user by 4x in high-density scenarios.

The newest standard combined with Ruckus’ Ultra-High-Density Technology Suite will empower you to deliver the best end-user experience.

Ultra-High Density Technology Suite

Performance Optimization

What it means:

The Ruckus Ultra-High-Density Technology Suite is a collection of features and technologies designed to improve network performance and end-user experience in ultra-high dense environments – specifically stadiums, auditoriums, convention centres, transit hubs and lecture halls.

It comprises Ruckus unique technologies:

Why you should care:

There exists an insatiable demand for faster and better Wi-Fi driven by the growth in more devices and more demanding applications. This demand exists whether we are at the office or in a densely populated area such as at an airport or a train station.

While the latest Wi-Fi standards like 802.11ax deliver more, by itself that is not enough. Ruckus’ unique technologies combined with the new standard 802.11ax enable our customers to deliver the best end-user experience in ultra-high dense environments.

Transient Client Management

Performance Optimization

What it means:

Transient Client Management is a capability that delays associations of Ruckus AP’s with transient clients (devices that are in the AP’s coverage area for a short time) using statistical methods.

Why you should care:

In a dense Wi-Fi network, transient clients can degrade the user experience for already connected clients. This problem is typical in train stations, bus terminals and various public hot spot venues where thousands of devices moving through an area send management frames to an AP they don’t intend to connect with. This overwhelms the network with unnecessary traffic and thus slows down the Wi-Fi.

With Transient Client Management, Ruckus APs maximize the attention towards already connected non-transient clients and utilize the airtime more efficiently.

Airtime Decongestion

Performance Optimization

What it means:

APs and Clients continuously exchange management frames to maintain a connection. Airtime Decongestion is a Ruckus technology that limits management frame exchanges between APs and clients in ultra-high dense environments.

Why you should care:

In an ultra-high dense Wi-Fi environment, excessive management traffic saturates the available Wi-Fi spectrum. This results in poor connectivity and low per-client throughput, ultimately leading to a poor client experience.

Airtime Decongestion technology enables APs to selectively respond to clients, dramatically increasing overall network efficiency for higher airtime utilization and thus a better user experience.

Network Capacity Utilization

Performance Optimization

What it means:

Network Capacity Utilization improves overall network capacity and airtime utilization with built-in adaptive client management techniques that evenly spread client load across APs and across bands to maintain optimal AP-to-client links in ultra-high dense environments.

Why you should care:

In dense networks, APs end up with uneven client load leading to inefficient utilization of overall network capacity. This leads to a sub-optimal client-to-AP link quality resulting in a lower throughput for the clients.

Network Capacity Utilization employs real-time learning techniques to associate clients to APs with higher link quality and capacity in response to dynamic network loads resulting in higher overall network capacity and higher per-client throughput and a better user experience.
