Product Overview
RG-AP880-AR is an IEEE 802.11ax-compliant quad-radio wireless access point (AP) released by Ruijie Networks for indoor high-density scenarios in the higher education, government, general education, finance, and business sectors.
The RG-AP880-AR complies with the IEEE 802.11ax, 802.11ac Wave 2, 802.11ac Wave 1, and 802.11n protocols. It adopts the hardware-independent quad-radio design and can provide a maximum access rate of 8.642 Gbps, which breaks through the bottleneck in wireless performance.
The RG-AP880-AR integrates Ruijie's exclusive AI Radio design. The extra intelligent radio card provides better access experience and real-time full-band security protection for users in the Wi-Fi environment.
Important factors such as the wireless network security, radio control, mobile access, Quality of Service (QoS), seamless roaming, and expansion of the Internet of Things (IoT) module are fully taken into account for the RG-AP880-AR. Therefore, it can be used together with Ruijie's access controllers (ACs) and RG-WIS to implement STA data forwarding, security, access control, and IoT application extension.
Moreover, the RG-AP880-AR supports local power supply and power over Ethernet (PoE), which can be selected based on power supply conditions. In addition, this AP can be mounted onto a wall or ceiling, making the AP especially applicable to large campuses, conference centers, plazas, or other densely populated scenarios.

Product Features
Independent Multi-functional AI Radio
The RG-AP880-AR is an AP of the AR series released by Ruijie Networks. It is equipped with a hardware-independent intelligent radio card, which improves user experience in the Wi-Fi 6 environment from multiple dimensions.

Intelligent Security Guard

As an independent radio card, AI Radio can, without impairing wireless experience, guard the security of 2.4 GHz/5 GHz full-band wireless networks in 24/7 mode and carry out radar scanning on the wireless networks to eliminate hidden risks. It is applicable to finance, education, government, business, and enterprise scenarios.

Improved Roaming Experience

AI Radio also supports real-time terminal status scanning to ensure stable roaming handover, without compromising wireless experience. Based on the scanning result of each neighbor AP, Ruijie's RG-WIS ensures better roaming decisions. This delivers good roaming experience, making the AP to be more applicable to scenarios, such as mobile working, video conferencing on mobile terminals, and online learning.

Simplistic Optical Ethernet Solution
The RG-AP880-AR supports Ruijie's Simplistic Optical Ethernet Solution.
This solution uses optical fiber lines instead of traditional Ethernet lines. It features a flattened network architecture, simple implementation, and neat cabling, supports elastic network upgrade, and has obvious advantages compared with the traditional Ethernet solution.

High-Speed Wireless Access, Higher Energy Efficiency, and Higher Reliability
1024-QAM High-Speed Access
The RG-AP880-AR adopts the quad-radio design and complies with the next-generation Wi-Fi standard IEEE 802.11ax. When the four radios are all enabled, the AP can provide a maximum wireless access rate of 8.642 Gbps, bringing high-speed access experience.

OFDMA High-Density User Access
The Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access (OFDMA) feature in IEEE 802.11ax enables the RG-AP880-AR to divide a WLAN channel into a plurality of narrower subchannels, with each user occupying one or more subchannels. The AP can conduct scheduling to allow multiple users to receive and send packets concurrently, which reduces user contention and backoff, shortens the network delay, and improves network efficiency.
In a high-density deployment and access environment, the average rate per STA can be raised to four times that of IEEE 802.11ac.

Environment Protection and Lower Power Consumption
The RG-AP880-AR incorporates various new energy saving technologies, including the single-antenna standby technology, dynamic MIMO power saving technology, enhanced automatic power saving transmission technology, and packet-based power control technology. With these technologies as well as high-performance power design, the RG-AP880-AR is energy-efficient while providing the high-speed wireless access service.

Intelligent Recognition Function
The RG-AP880-AR is capable of identifying smart mobile terminals (such as iOS and Android terminals) and PCs. The RG-AP880-AR can be correlated with Ruijie's WIS to implement visualized wireless network management based on the wireless terminal type and network optimization in one-click mode.

Intelligent Local Forwarding
The RG-AP880-AR integrates Ruiie's intelligent local forwarding technology, which breaks through the traffic bottleneck of ACs. The data forwarding mode of the RG-AP880-AR can be pre-configured on a Ruijie's AC. Then, this AP determines whether data needs to be forwarded by the AC or be sent to a wired network for data exchange based on the SSID name or user VLAN.
The local forwarding technology forwards data that is sensitive to delay and requires real-time high-performance transmission through a wired network. This greatly reduces the traffic pressure of ACs for better adaption to heavy-traffic transmission of IEEE 802.11ax networks.

Abundant QoS Policies
The RG-AP880-AR provides abundant quality of service (QoS) policies. It supports WLAN/AP/STA-based bandwidth limitation as well as Wi-Fi Multimedia (WMM) that defines priorities for different service data. Therefore, the AP authentically implements timely and quantitative transmission of audio and video, and guarantees smooth application of multimedia services.
The multicast-to-unicast technology supported by the RG-AP880-AR solves the video lagging problem caused by packet loss or high delay in Video on Demand (VoD) and other multicast applications on wireless networks, and improves the experience in the use of multicast video services on wireless networks.
