HICKORY, NC — Ruckus Networks (now part of CommScope via acquisition) announced that the R750 802.11ax indoor Wi-Fi access point (AP) for ultra-dense client environments is Wi-Fi CERTIFIED 6 from the Wi-Fi Alliance. This certification further validates the applicability of the R750 in ultra-dense client environments such as stadiums, hotels, convention centers and schools.

Increasing Client Device Speeds

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. 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 (4x4:4 in 5GHz, 4x4:4 in 2.4GHz), 3.5 Gbps aggregate throughput and embedded Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) and Zigbee radios.  

Connecting a Diverse Set of Client Devices

A combination of new features enables Wi-Fi CERTIFIED 6 to connect a diverse set of client devices, from those demanding peak performance — for 4K video streaming and AR/VR applications — to IoT sensors requiring low power and low latency. These include uplink and downlink orthogonal frequency division multiple access (OFDMA), multi-user multiple input multiple output (MU-MIMO), transmit beamforming, 1024 quadrature amplitude modulation mode (1024-QAM) and target wake time (TWT).

Ruckus’ extensive collaboration with the Wi-Fi Alliance has contributed to the successful launch of Wi-Fi CERTIFIED 6, with the Ruckus R750 AP serving as one of the first products comprising the test bed for interoperability certification. Ruckus was also involved with the original specification and testing, conformance events and helped spearhead efforts to get the standard finalized and released.
