T301 Series Outdoor Access Point

Outdoor 2x2:2 2.4/5GHz 802.11ac Wi-Fi access points with directed coverage

At stadiums, transit hubs, 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 T301 Series of 802.11ac 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 high-gain directional antennas to direct coverage, eliminating the need for bulky panel antennas and confusing and expensive external RF cabling.

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

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.
