Overview:

High Performance, 802.11ac Wave 2 Mid-range Smart Wi-fi Access Points With Adaptive Antenna Technology

Ruckus R610 Unleashed enables controller-less Wi-Fi architecture for small business environments with superior performance, lower costs and simplified management. Separate controllers and access point licenses are no longer needed, significantly reducing upfront costs. Set-up is also easy, thanks to a simplified web interface that helps businesses configure Wi-Fi in just 60 seconds.

The R610 Unleashed delivers high-performance and reliable 802.11ac wireless networking with MU-MIMO (Multi-User Multiple-Input Multiple-Output) capability. MU-MIMO helps boost network throughput by serving multiple clients simultaneously and also benefiting non-Wave 2 clients, thus improving overall network performance.

The R610 Unleashed, through its USB port, also enables IoT readiness for technologies like BLE, to help customers take advantage of upcoming IoT technologies.

Each R610 Unleashed integrates Ruckus-patented BeamFlex+, a software-controlled, high gain antennas that continually forms and directs each Wi-Fi packet over the best performing signal path.

Using dual-polarized antennas, the R610 Unleashed adapts in real time to anticipate hand-held device movement and rotation ensuring consistent performance.

MU-MIMO

MU-MIMO helps Wave 2 and non-Wave 2 clients. The R610 Unleashed can communicate simultaneously to multiple Wave 2 clients increasing network performance. This frees up airtime for non-Wave 2 clients resulting in enhanced aggregate network throughput.

Advanced WLAN Applications

Each R610 Unleashed supports a wide range of value-added applications such as BYOD/guest onboarding, Dynamic PSK, hotspot authentication, wireless intrusion detection and many more. WLANs can be created and mapped to the same or different APs or VLANs. In a controller-less configuration, the R610 Unleashed works with a wide range of authentication servers including Microsoft’s Active Directory, LDAP, and RADIUS.

Flexible Deployment Options

Ruckus Unleashed is custom-designed to help small business owners grow their business, deliver an excellent customer experience and manage costs while supporting Wi-Fi and a variety of mobile devices with minimal IT staff. Unleashed access points have built-in controller capabilities, including user access controls, guest networking functions, advanced Wi-Fi security and traffic management. As businesses grow to multiple sites or a larger scale deployment, Ruckus offers an easy migration path to a controller-based Wi-Fi, using the same Wi-Fi access points.

Complete Local And Cloud Management

Each R610 Unleashed can be securely managed from anywhere, at anytime, using any browser on any device.
