Smaller locations can face big-time demands on their wireless infrastructure. Whether working out of a small office or connecting to a public hotspot, users are often still accessing the same high-bandwidth applications and content they’d consume anywhere else. And they expect strong, reliable connectivity.
How can you provide it without breaking the bank? The Ruckus R320 delivers consistent, reliable 802.11ac wave 2 wireless networking at an affordable price. It features the patented Ruckus BeamFlex adaptive antenna technology for performance optimization and interference mitigation found in our premier access points, delivering superior user experiences at extended ranges. But it provides them in an ultra-compact form factor built for small venues—with a price tag to match. The R320 is an ideal choice for low-density enterprise and hotspot environments including smalland medium-size businesses, retail locations, restaurants, and multi-tenant small offices and branch offices. The R320 802.11ac wave 2 Wi-Fi AP incorporates patented technologies found only in the Ruckus Wi-Fi portfolio.
- Extended coverage with BeamFlex utilizing multi-directional antenna patterns.
- Improve throughput with ChannelFly, which dynamically finds less congested Wi-Fi channels to use.
The R320 provides an ideal combination of features and performance for smaller environments. Additionally, it supports up to 256 clients per AP. Whether you’re deploying ten or ten thousand APs, the R320 is also easy to manage through Ruckus’ appliance, virtual, controller-less and cloud management options.
AFFORDABLE ENTERPRISE PERFORMANCE
The R320 provides great performance with extended range at an affordable price.
KEEP EXISTING SWITCHES AND CABLES
Designed to operate on existing PoE switches and CAT 5e cabling to minimize costly upgrades.
MULTIPLE MANAGEMENT OPTIONS
Manage the R320 from the cloud, with on-premises physical/virtual appliances, or without a controller.
STUNNING WI-FI PERFORMANCE
Extends coverage with patented BeamFlex™ adaptive antenna technology while mitigating interference by utilizing 64 directional antenna patterns.
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.
MORE THAN WI-FI
Small Lightweight Form Factor With Built in Mounting Options For Easy Deployment
The R320 installs and mounts seamlessly, making it ideal for quick and effective set up for carrier and enterprise deployments.
Access Point Antenna Pattern
Ruckus’ BeamFlex adaptive antennas allow the R320 AP to dynamically choose among a host of antenna patterns (up to 64 possible combinations) 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.
