Data Sheet

In busy outdoor public venues, users and operators need fast, reliable connectivity. Whether it's smartphones running bandwidth-hungry voice and video applications, Internet of Things (IoT) sensors, or "Smart City" connected devices, crowded outdoor spaces demand high-performance Wi-Fi.

The Ruckus T610 delivers blazing-fast connectivity for medium-density outdoor deployments, with data rates up to 2.5Gbps—the highest available data rates for Wi-Fi clients. Patented Ruckus adaptive antenna technology improves signal quality for every connected device, everywhere. And the AP delivers all of this in an industrial-grade enclosure that can stand up to the rigors of the elements in practically any outdoor space.

The T610 is purpose-built for busy public venues such as outdoor campuses and hotspots, arenas, convention centers, and transportation hubs. It provides industrial-grade features such as secure image download and an IP67-compliant USB port, making it easy to deploy IoT applications for Smart Cities or large-scale video surveillance/monitoring systems. It’s the perfect choice for medium-density deployments with standard Ethernet backhaul that require premium wireless performance.

The T610 802.11ac 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.

Additionally, the T610 provides a full complement of next-generation 802.11ac features. 802.11ac Multi-User MIMO (MU-MIMO) support allows the AP to simultaneously transmit to multiple client devices, drastically improving airtime efficiency and overall throughput for all clients—even non-Wave 2 devices. SmartMesh™ wireless meshing technology accelerates time-to-deployment and eliminates the cost associated with running Ethernet cabling between multiple access points in the network.

Whether you’re deploying ten or ten thousand APs, the T610 is also easy to manage through Ruckus’ appliance, virtual and cloud management options.

Access Point Antenna Pattern

Ruckus’ BeamFlex+ adaptive antennas allow the T610 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.
