R650 Indoor Access Point

Indoor 802.11ax 4x4:4 Wi-Fi AP with 2.5Gbps Backhaul and 6 spatial streams

Wi-Fi capacity requirements in office buildings, classrooms, and retail venues are rapidly raising due to increase in Wi-Fi connected devices, non-Wi-Fi IoT devices and bandwidth-hungry applications.

The R650 access point (AP) with the latest Wi-Fi 6 (802.11 ax) technology delivers increased capacity, improved coverage and performance in dense environments. The R650 is our mid-range dual-band, dual-concurrent AP that supports six spatial streams (4x4:4 in 5GHz, 2x2:2 in 2.4GHz). The R650 supports peak data rates of up to 2974 Mbps and efficiently manages up to 512 clients connections. Furthermore, 2.5GbE Ethernet ensures the backhaul will not be a bottleneck for full use of available Wi-Fi capacity.

The R650 has built-in IoT radios with onboard BLE and Zigbee capabilities. In addition, the R650 is a converged access point that allows customers to seamlessly integrate any new wireless technologies with the pluggable IoT module.

Client Density and Video Performance Comparison of Mid-range 802.11ac Access Points

Test 2 – Slall-Free Video Results

Ruckus was one of only two vendors able to deliver stall-free streaming video to 60 clients in an unloaded network scenario and the only vendor able to do so in every scenario, both with and without simultaneous network data loading. No other vendor came close.
