Ruckus R650

The Ruckus R650 represents an evolution in Access Point (AP) technology - it's not just a Wi-Fi AP, it's a Wireless technology hub. It's a 6 stream AP (4x4:4 in 5GHz, 2x2:2 in 2.4GHz) that comes with Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) capable of delivering 2400Mbps in 5GHz and 574Mbps in 2.4GHz.

Wi-Fi 6 Multi-gigabit wireless technology is custom designed for ultra-high density deployments using technologies like OFDMA and has the added benefit of increasing your phone's battery life, thanks to the Target Wake Time (TWT) feature.

Additionally, the R650 comes with built-in BLE and Zigbee, and the option to expand to other wireless protocols in the future. With the R650, adopting a new wireless technology is as if it's a wireless language, the R650 will be able to speak it.

Ruckus R750

The Ruckus R750 represents an evolution in Access Point (AP) technology - it's not just a Wi-Fi AP, it's a Wireless technology hub. It's an 8 stream AP (4x4:4 in 5GHz, 4x4:4 in 2.4GHz) that comes with Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) capable of delivering 2.4Gbps in 5GHz and 1.148Gbps in 2.4GHz.

Wi-Fi 6 Multi-gigabit wireless technology is custom designed for ultra-high density deployments using technologies like OFDMA and has the added benefit of increasing your phone's battery life, thanks to the Target Wait Time (TWT) feature.

Additionally, the R750 comes with built-in BLE & Zigbee, and the option to expand to other wireless protocols in the future. With the R750, adopting a new wireless technology is as if it's a wireless language, the R750 will be able to speak it.

Ruckus R850

The Ruckus R850 is a new dual-band concurrent 12 stream Wi-Fi 6 Access Point, capable of delivering 4.8Gbps with 8x8:8 5GHz radio and 1.148Gbps with a 2.4GHz radio. 

The R850 is designed for high density, high performance applications, and has on-board BLE & Zigbee radios for IOT Applications.  The R850 supports a 5Gbps PoE_in Ethernet interface that can operate with uPOE, PoH, and 802.3at power, and has an additional 1Gbps Ethernet interface and a USB port.

Ruckus T750SE

The Ruckus T750SE is the Wi-Fi Industry's highest performing outdoor Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) AP. The T750SE combines all Ruckus patented technologies and best-in-class industrial grade design with the latest high performance 4x4:4 Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) platform to deliver industry-leading Wi-Fi performance, reliability and coverage for challenging high density outdoor deployments. The T750SE is capable of delivering an aggregate throughput of 2.4Gbps in the 5GHz band and 1.148Gbps in the 2.4GHz band with an internal 120-Degree Sector antenna and option to attach external antennae.

Wi-Fi 6 Multi-gigabit wireless technology is custom designed for ultra-high density deployments using technologies like OFDMA and it is capable of delivering more reliable Wi-Fi experience with the Long Guard Interval feature specifically added in Wi-Fi 6 for outdoor usage.

In addition, T750SE has on-board BLE and Zigbee radios to enable IoT use-cases, and a 2.5Gbps Ethernet back-haul to support the high throughput expected in ultra-high density deployments.

SmartZone 144 (SZ-144)
