Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) Technology

1024-QAM High-speed Access Rate

RG-AP680(CD) adopts the dual-band dual-radio 802.11ax design with up to 4 spatial streams and built-in directional antenna. The first radio offers up to 0.575Gbps access rate at 2.4G and supports switching to 5G with up to 1.2Gbps access rate, while the second radio offers up to 1.2Gbps access rate at 5G. The AP offers a maximum wireless access rate of 2.4Gbps. 2.4G + 5G is recommended, which offers access rate of 1.775Gbps.

OFDMA High-density User Access

RG-AP680(CD) supports OFDMA of 802.11ax, which divides the WLAN channel into multiple narrower subchannels, with each user occupying one or more subchannels. By scheduling multiple users to receive and send packets concurrently via the AP, user competition and back-off can be reduced, thereby reducing network latency and improving network efficiency.

Spatial Reuse with BSS Color

RG-AP680(CD) supports spatial reuse with basic service set (BSS) color of 802.11ax to identify the BSSs of different WLANs in the network by different coloring (BSS color), and further divide them into internal (BSS which belongs to the device) and external BSS. Different packet receiving and sending thresholds can be maintained. When receiving packets, BSS coloring is used to quickly identify the packet of external BSS. If the signal strength is lower than the receiving threshold of external BSS, the packet will be ignored. The transmission of the internal BSS packets will be not affected.

This technology can implement channel reuse in a high-density scenario, greatly reducing the impact of co-channel interference for the actual network deployment.

 

Industry-leading Local Forwarding Technology

Employing Ruijie’s intelligent local forwarding technology, RG-AP680(CD) eliminates the traffic bottleneck of wireless access controllers. Deploying with the Ruijie RG-WS Wireless Controller Series, users can flexibly configure the data forwarding mode for RG-AP680(CD). The AP also controls whether the data will be forwarded via the wireless controller according to the SSID or user VLAN, or directly sent to the wired network for data exchange.

The local forwarding technology can classify and forward delay-sensitive data which requires real-time transmission through the wired network to greatly alleviate the traffic pressure on the wireless controllers and better meet the high traffic transmission requirements of the 802.11n and 802.11ac network.

Abundant QoS Policies

RG-AP680(CD) supports a wide variety of QoS policies. For example, it provides WLAN/AP/STA-based bandwidth limitations which prioritize important and critical data transmission over others for bandwidth guarantee.

With the multicast-to-unicast technology, RG-AP680(CD) resolves the video lagging problem due to packet loss or high latency in the wireless network, and highly enhances user experience of the multicast video services of wireless networks.

Easy Installation & Deployment

Easy-to-use Mount-Kit

An adjustable mount-kit is available by default for painless deployment optimization. The APs can be easily adjustable (total in 60°) to adapt to various scenarios.

Adjustable Mount-kit of AP680 Outdoor Access Point

 

Flexible Gigabit Uplink Options

The RG-AP680(CD) outdoor access point offers a 10/100/1000Base-T Ethernet uplink port that rids the LAN port of being the wireless access bottleneck, and a 1000M SFP port that adapts to wired networking structure under different user scenarios. The SFP Base-X port takes up the data transmission workload for optimal network deployment.

 

Comprehensive Security Policies

User Data Encryption

RG-AP680(CD) offers comprehensive data security protection with encryption technologies such as WEP, TKIP and AES, guaranteeing the data transmission security of the wireless network.

RF Security

In collaboration with Ruijie’s RG-SNC Smart Network Commander and RG-WS Wireless Controllers, RG-AP680(CD) enables the RF probe scanning mechanism to detect unauthorized access points or other RF interference sources. Once detected, the AP will alert the network administrator to monitor potential threats and usage status in the wireless environment.

ARP Spoofing Protection

The ARP detection feature effectively suppresses the phenomenon of ARP gateway spoofing and ARP host spoofing in the network, and ensures the normal Internet access of users. Automatic binding can be achieved for both dynamic and static IP allocation, which greatly reduces labor costs and management costs. The ARP rate limit feature allows you to limit the rate of ARP packets to prevent the malicious use of scanning tools to perform ARP flooding which occupies the network bandwidth and causes network congestion attack.

Multiple Easy-to-use Authentication Modes

With Ruijie Cloud Service or RG-MACC Software controller, the RG-AP680(CD) outdoor access point supports a wide range of authentication methods such as Guest Hotspot, 802.1x, voucher/ access code, user account, and social authentication. Complying with the standard network access control, it offers a set of control policies in terms of user access, authorization, equipment compliance check, network behavior monitoring, network attack prevention, etc. All these control features guarantee high network security for authenticated users.

Multi authentication options for guests and employees

High Availability Design

Authentication Offload and Acceleration

Powered by Ruijie Cloud and EasyGate (EG) security gateway, captive portal and account & voucher authentication can be managed by Cloud, but all security policy and enforcement will be processed locally at EG security gateway. It not only accelerates the overall authentication processing, and also provide additional service availability protection in case of Cloud or WLAN Controller is unreachable, all authentication service still un-interrupted.


Ruijie EG’s Authentication Offload and Acceleration

 

1.4.2Remote Intelligent Perception Technology (RIPT)

In the traditional network architecture where FIT APs are centrally managed by a wireless controller, packets received by the AP must be transmitted to the controller before being forwarded. When the wireless controller becomes faulty, the APs will fail to work properly causing whole network breakdown.

                                           RIPT Disaster Recovery

 

Ruijie’s latest RIPT provides you a complete disaster recovery solution and enables the Wireless Controller Series to implement intelligent link perception. Once the faulty controller is detected, the APs will quickly switch to the intelligent mode to continue data forwarding, ensuring the high availability of the wireless network and keeping wireless users always online.

Hybrid Management

All Ruijie enterprise APs support hybrid management mode. Either deployed as standalone AP (Fat mode) or managed AP (Fit and MACC mode), the AP will detect the operation mode automatically without extra effort on firmware upgrade. For additional security and operation, we recommend the enterprise customers to choose either one of below wireless controller options depending on the functionality and capacity:

 

Below are the summarized feature highlights for various Ruijie management system options which target for specific industry segments:


*new feature to be available in year 2020
