Bandwidth-hungry voice and video applications. Internet of Things (IoT) connections. An explosion of new devices and content. With these kinds of demands, organizations in every industry need more from their Wi-Fi. But with hundreds of devices and nonstop wireless noise and interference, busy indoor spaces can make challenging wireless environments.
The Ruckus R710 is a premier indoor access point, delivering industry-leading performance and reliability in the most demanding high-density locations. With data rates up to 800Mbps (2.4GHz) and 1.733Gbps (5GHz), the R710 delivers the highest available throughput for Wi-Fi clients.
The R710 delivers reliable, high-performance connectivity in schools, universities, public venues, hotels, conference centers, and other busy indoor spaces. The perfect choice for data-intensive streaming multimedia applications, it delivers picture-perfect HD-quality IP video, while supporting voice and data applications with stringent quality-of-service requirements.
The R710 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 (MU-MIMO) connectivity, the R710 can simultaneously transmit to multiple client devices, drastically improving RF efficiency, overall throughput, and availability—even for non-Wave 2 clients. The R710 also features a USB port for hosting IoT devices such as Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) beacons, and dual Gigabit Ethernet ports that support Link Aggregation for higher-capacity backhaul to the switch. The R710 supports up to 512 clients per AP and features capacity-based admission control to prevent APs from getting congested with too many attached devices.
Whether you’re deploying ten or ten thousand APs, the R710 is also easy to manage through Ruckus’ appliance, virtual and cloud management options.
Stunning Wi-Fi Performance
Provide a great user experience no matter how challenging the environment with BeamFlex+™ adaptive antenna technology and a library of 4K+ directional antenna patterns.
Serve More Devices
Connect more devices simultaneously with four MU-MIMO spatial streams and concurrent dual-band 2.4/5GHz radios while enhancing non-Wave 2 device performance.
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.
Multiple Management Options
Manage the R710 from the cloud, with on-premises physical/virtual appliances, or without a controller.
Better Mesh Networking
Reduce expensive cabling, and complex mesh configurations by checking a box with SmartMesh™ wireless meshing technology to dynamically create self-forming, self-healing mesh networks.
Pair two onboard 1GbE ports with link aggregation (LACP) to maximize throughput between the AP and wired switch.
More Than Wi-Fi
Access Point Antenna Pattern
Ruckus’ BeamFlex+ adaptive antennas allow the R710 AP to dynamically choose among a host of antenna patterns (over 4,000 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.
Note: The outer trace represents the composite RF footprint of all possible BeamFlex+ antenna patterns, while the inner trace represents one BeamFlex+ antenna pattern within the composite outer trace.
