E510

Embedded 802.11ac Outdoor Wave 2 Wi-Fi AP with External BeamFlex+ Antennas

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. However, designing an optimal wireless network without interfering with the aesthetics of the environment is a challenge in an outdoor environment.

The Ruckus E510 802.11ac Wave 2 access point (AP) is designed with a unique, diminutive two element enclosure which separates the RF components from the antenna module.

The E510 can be placed unobtrusively inside metal-shielded signage at a bus or train stations, and within a vending machine and display kiosk. The low profile antenna module can be located externally and linked to the RF module via weather proof cabling.

Deployment Flexibility
Separation of the antenna from the small radio component provides deployment flexibility that supports location constraints and aesthetic requirements.
Great Outdoor Wi-Fi
Deploy high-performance outdoor 802.11ac Wave 2 Wi-Fi in harshest of the outdoor environments with IP-67 weather proofing.
Stunning Wi-Fi Performance
Extends coverage with patented BeamFlex+™ adaptive antenna technology while mitigating interference by utilizing up to 64 directional antenna patterns.
Multiple Management Options
Manage the E510 with physical or virtual appliances.
Automate Optimal Throughput
ChannelFly™ dynamic channel technology uses machine learning to automatically find the least congested channels. You always get the highest throughput the band can support.
Serve More Devices
Connect more devices simultaneously with two MU-MIMO spatial streams and concurrent dual-band 2.4/5GHz radios while also enhancing non-Wave 2 device performance.
More Than Wi-Fi
Support services beyond Wi-Fi with the Ruckus IoT Suite, Cloudpath security and onboarding software, SPoT Wi-Fi locationing engine, and SCI network analytics.

BeamFlex 自适应天线技术

性能优化

它意味着什么:

智能、小巧的自适应天线系统含有多个元素,它们能够电子操纵天线性能,从而为与它们通信的每个设备创建最佳天线模式。

您为什么需要注意:

传统的无线天线要么是“全向”的(在所有方向上辐射信号),要么是“定向的”(在一个方向上辐射信号)。而 Ruckus BeamFlex 自适应天线技术则采用更具适应性的方法。BeamFlex 技术能够让 Ruckus 接入点内的天线系统不断感测和优化其环境。 该天线系统可减轻无线电干扰、噪声和网络性能问题,并提高应用流。结果:

  • 增加了性能和覆盖范围
  • 清晰的视频和语音通信
  • 最大化电源效率

BeamFlex+ 可以自适应支持移动设备,增强了 Ruckus BeamFlex 自适应天线技术。除客户端设备位置外,BeamFlex+ 还可以使天线适应客户端设备方向。
