Техническая спецификация

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® R350 delivers consistent, reliable Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) wireless networking at an affordable price. The AP features the patented RUCKUS technologies 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.

Also, wireless requirements within enterprises are expanding beyond Wi-Fi with BLE, Zigbee and many other non-Wi-Fi wireless technologies resulting in creation of network silos. Enterprises need a unified platform to eliminate network silos. The RUCKUS R350 is equipped to solve these challenges with a USB port supporting an optional pluggable BLE and Zigbee IoT module.

The R350 is an ideal choice for low-density enterprise and hotspot environments including small and medium-size businesses, retail locations, restaurants, and multi-tenant small offices and branch offices.

The R350 Wi-Fi 6 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 R350 provides an ideal combination of features and performance for smaller environments. Additionally, it supports up to 256 clients and 16 SSIDs per AP.

Whether you’re deploying ten or ten thousand APs, the R350 is also easy to manage through RUCKUS’ appliance, virtual, controller-less and cloud management options.

Access point antenna pattern

RUCKUS’ BeamFlex adaptive antennas allow the R350 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.
