RUCKUS H510

Wall-Mounted 802.11ac Wave 2 Wi-Fi Access Point and Switch

Download PDF »

How many devices can you connect in a single room? It sounds like the start of a riddle. But if you operate a hotel, apartment building, or other multi-dwelling unit (MDU) structure, your answer can have a big impact on your bottom line.

The RUCKUS H510 wall-mounted access point and switch makes it easy to support the most demanding in-room connectivity requirements. It starts with Ruckus' patented Wi-Fi optimization intelligence to deliver the industry's highest-performing wireless connectivity. Combine that with four-ports of Gigabit Ethernet to connect multiple in-room wired devices, without extra cabling. Put it all in a sleek, low-profile design that can be discretely installed over a standard electrical outlet.

The H510 is a perfect choice for delivering converged services in hospitality and residential locations such as hotel guest rooms, student residence halls, apartments, and other MDU structures. It can connect wired network devices such as IPTV set-top boxes, IP phones, or networked minibars, while simultaneously providing dual-band 802.11ac Wi-Fi coverage. A PoE port and pass-through features can connect and power devices directly from the wall switch. And, an included cable channel can connect even legacy devices, like digital phones that require native access to PBX systems. All of these in-room services can coexist within the same junction box, dramatically reducing cabling, installation time, and construction costs.

The H510 wall-mounted 802.11ac Wave 2 Wi-Fi AP incorporates patented technologies found only in the Ruckus Wi-Fi portfolio.

  • Extended coverage with patented BeamFlex+ utilizing multi-directional antenna patterns.
  • Improve throughput with ChannelFly, which dynamically finds less congested Wi-Fi channels to use.

With MultiUser-MIMO connectivity, the H510 can simultaneously transmit to multiple Wave 2 clients, improving network RF efficiency and overall performance, even for non-Wave 2 clients. The H510 also features a USB port to support future add-on radio modules, easy-to-deploy mesh networking capabilities, and support for up to 100 clients per room.

Whether you're deploying ten or ten thousand APs, the H510 is also easy to manage through Ruckus' appliance, virtual, and cloud management options.

Benefits

Access Point Antenna Pattern

Ruckus' BeamFlex+ adaptive antennas allow the H510 AP to dynamically choose among a host of antenna patterns in real-time to establish the best possible connection with every device. This leads to:

  • Better Wi-Fi coverage
  • Reduced RF interference

Traditional omni-directional antennas, found in generic access points, oversaturate the environment by needlessly radiating RF signals in all directions. In contrast, the Ruckus BeamFlex+ adaptive antenna directs the radio signals per-device on a packet by-packet basis to optimize Wi-Fi coverage and capacity in real-time to support high device density environments. BeamFlex+ operates without the need for device feedback and hence can benefit even devices using legacy standards.
