More+
Upon the uprising challenges of management efficiency and wireless security, all Ruijie enterprise APs support hybrid management mode. Either deployed as standalone AP (Fat Mode) or managed AP (Fit Mode and Cloud Managed Mode), the AP will detect the operation mode automatically without extra effort on firmware upgrade. For additional security and operation features, we recommend the enterprise customers to choose one of the below options depending on the functionality and capacity needed:
 
Public Cloud: Ruijie Cloud – Ruijie Public Cloud service(powered by RG-MACC) is targeted for the SME segment with integrated captive portal, authentication (such as PPSK for employees, Facebook, voucher, account, etc.), and reporting features. Together with Ruijie Cloud Mobile App (free download), SME customers can provision and manage their networks at fingertips.
 
Hybrid Cloud: RG-WS Series Wireless Controller (On-premises) Plus Cloud Management (Optional) – targeted for enterprise office, campus, and hospitality customers with single or multiple sites and high-density AP deployment. The controller devices with cluster-based architecture are installed at the customer’s sites with fully integrated wireless management and authentication features, supporting large scale AP management. Optionally, the cloud management platform allows for value-added features like centralized device configuration and monitoring, AI radio (RF) optimization, reporting, etc.
High Speed Wi-Fi 6 and Energy Saving
1024-QAM High-speed Access
RG-AP820-L(V3) adopts the dual-radio dual-band design. With the next-generation 802.11ax for 5GHz band, the maximum access rate can reach 2.4Gbps. If dual-radio is enabled concurrently, the high-speed Wi-Fi throughput can reach 2.97Gbps, offering the true high-speed experience. 
OFDMA High-density User Access
RG-AP820-L(V3) supports OFDMA of 802.11ax, which divides the WLAN channel into plurality of 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. In a high-density deployment environment, the average rate per user is increased by four times compared with Wi-Fi 5 devices.
Spatial Reuse with BSS Color
RG-AP820-L(V3) supports spatial reuse with basic service set (BSS) color of 802.11ax.  It marks the BSSs of different WLANs in the network by different color identifiers (BSS color), and further divides them into internal and external BSS. Packet receiving and sending thresholds for the internal and external BSS are maintained separately. When receiving packets, the BSS color is retrieved to quickly identify the packets of the external BSS. If the signal strength is lower than the receiving threshold of the external BSS, the packet will be ignored. At the same time the transmission of the internal BSS packet will not be affected. This technology enhances channel reuse in a high-density scenario, greatly reducing the impact of co-channel interference for the actual network deployment.
Performance Boost from Wi-Fi 5
RG-AP820-L(V3) provides considerable performance boost even in an environment with Wi-Fi 5 only user devices. This means RG-AP820-L(V3) is not only future-proof but also able to provide instant improvement over the Wi-Fi 5 APs. 
Energy Saving for Green and Low-carbon Network
Several energy saving technologies have been used in RG-AP820-L(V3), such as single antenna standby, dynamic MIMO, enhanced auto power-saving transmission and packet power control. With the high-performance power circuit design, RG-AP820-L(V3) is able to save energy while providing high-speed wireless access.
Industry-leading Local Forwarding Technology
Employing an industry-leading local forwarding technology, RG-AP820-L(V3) breaks through the limitation of traffic bottleneck of wireless controllers. In collaboration with the RG-WS wireless controller series, users can flexibly pre-configure the data forwarding mode for RG-AP820-L(V3). The AP also controls whether the data will be forwarded via the wireless controller according to the SSID and user VLAN, or directly sent to the wired network for data exchange.
The local forwarding technology can classify and forward time-sensitive data which requires real-time transmission through the wired network, in order to greatly alleviate the traffic pressure on the wireless controllers and meet the need of high traffic transmission requirements of the 802.11ax standard network.
Abundant QoS Policies
RG-AP820-L(V3) supports a wide variety of QoS policies. For example, it provides WLAN/AP/STA-based bandwidth limitations and Wi-Fi multimedia (WMM) which defines different priorities for different service data. RG-AP820-L(V3) realizes timely and quantitative transmission of audio/video and guarantees smooth operation of multi-media applications.
With the multicast-to-unicast technology, RG-AP820-L(V3) resolves the video lagging problem due to packet loss or high latency, and greatly enhances user experience of the multicast video services of the wireless network.
 
Comprehensive Security Protection
Secure User Access
RG-AP820-L(V3) supports a wide range of authentication methods such as web, 802.1X, PPSK (one-time dynamic password), voucher/access code, user account and social authentication (Ruijie Cloud Required). Being complied with the standard NAC, it offers a set of control policies in terms of authentication, authorization, device compliance check, and network attack detection/prevention etc. All these features guarantee high network security for authenticated users.
Various enterprise authentication options for guest and employees
Personal Pre-shared Keys (PPSK)
Traditional Pre-shared Keys (PSK) shared by all users on a WLAN have high risk of PSK leak. Ruijie Personal PSK (PPSK) is an easy-to-setup wireless authentication method with enterprise-grade security level. Credentials can be created and revoked individually. Each PPSK can also be tied to a unique user/machine. 
With PPSK, the benefits are:
  • High security by providing different passwords for each user and device for the same SSID
  • Simple deployment with batch account creation
  • Ease of use, offering the same experience as WPA/WPA2-PSK
  • Out-of-box feature in Wireless Access Controller and Ruijie Cloud Service
  • No Additional AAA server required
Simple and effective wireless security practice
Virtual AP Technology
With the virtual AP technology, RG-AP820-L(V3) supports up to 16 ESSIDs. Network administrator can separately encrypt and isolate VLANs or subnets of the same SSID, thereby enabling specified authentication mode and encryption mechanism for each SSID.
Comprehensive Wireless Protection
Coupled with RG-WS series wireless controllers, RG-AP820-L(V3) offers a breadth of security features include WIDS (Wireless Intrusion Detection System), RF interference tracking, rogue AP containment, anti-ARP spoofing, DHCP protection and beyond for all-around security protection.
 
Hybrid Management
Flexible Management Options
All Ruijie enterprise APs support hybrid management mode. Either deployed as standalone AP (Fat Mode) or managed AP (Fit Mode and Cloud Managed Mode), the AP will detect the operation mode automatically without extra effort on firmware upgrade. For additional security and operation features, the enterprise customers can choose one of the below options depending on the functionality and capacity needed.
