Ruckus Networks, which is now a part of CommScope via acquisition, has announced that its R750 802.11ax indoor Wi-Fi access point (AP) for ultra-dense client environments is now Wi-Fi CERTIFIED 6 from the Wi-Fi Alliance.
According to Ruckus, this certification further validates the applicability of the R750 in ultra-dense client environments such as stadiums, hotels, convention centers and schools.
Wi-Fi CERTIFIED 6 increases client device speeds by nearly four times that of Wi-Fi 5, optimizes network capacity, improves performance in congested environments and extends battery life.
Ruckus believes that Wi-Fi CERTIFIED 6 brings the greatest value by enabling more devices to achieve peak performance simultaneously. This significantly increases overall Wi-Fi network performance in even the most ultra-dense indoor environments.
Wi-Fi CERTIFIED 6 also supports enhanced security protocols, with Wi-Fi CERTIFIED 6 devices guaranteed to support Wi-Fi CERTIFIED WPA3, the latest generation of Wi-Fi security.
“In keeping with a long tradition of Wi-Fi firsts, the Ruckus R750 is one of the first Wi-Fi CERTIFIED 6 access points,” said Morgan Kurk, chief technology officer at CommScope. “Designed for high-density connectivity in heterogeneous client environments, the R750 bridges the performance gap from ‘gigabit’ Wi-Fi to ‘multi-gigabit’ Wi-Fi. This capability is becoming critical in demanding environments such stadiums, hotels and even primary and K-12 schools.”
The Ruckus R750 is a dual-band, dual-concurrent Wi-Fi 6 AP that supports eight spatial streams (4×4:4 in 5GHz, 4×4:4 in 2.4GHz), 3.5 gigabit-per-second (Gbps) aggregate throughput and embedded Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) and Zigbee radios.
