Smart Wireless Coverage

●802.11ac Gigabit Access Rate

The 5GHz band of RG-AP520(W2) supports 802.11ac, the next-generation Wi-Fi standard, and offers a maximum connection rate up to 1167Mbps. Comparing to the conventional 802.11n standard, the throughput is greatly enhanced. The RG-AP520(W2) delivers a truly high-speed user experience.

Remarkable Energy-saving Design

The RG-AP520(W2) adopts advanced power-saving features including single-antenna standby, dynamic MIMO power saving, enhanced transmission technology with automatic power saving and packet-by-packet power control. Coupled with the high-performance power supply design, the APs guarantee high-speed wireless access and maximized signal coverage under 802.3af power supply.

Industry-leading Local Forwarding Technology

In collaboration with Ruijie RG-WS Wireless AC Series, users can flexibly pre-set a forwarding mode for the RG-AP520(W2). The APs can determine whether to forward data to the AC according to a SSID or user VLAN, or directly send the data to a wired network for data exchange.

The local forwarding technology can forward large-scale, delay-sensitive and real-time transmission data through the wired network. The feature significantly alleviates the traffic pressure on the wireless controllers and better fulfills the high traffic transmission requirements of 802.11ac network.

Abundant QoS Policies

The RG-AP520(W2) supports an extensive array of QoS policies. For example, it provides bandwidth limitations in WLAN/AP/STA modes and Wi-Fi multimedia (WMM) that defines different priorities for different service data. The RG-AP500 Series realizes timely and quantitative transmission of audio and video and guarantees smooth operation of multi-media applications.

With the multicast-to-unicast conversion technology, the RG-AP520(W2) resolves the video interruption problem due to packet loss or long delay in the wireless Video on Demand (VoD) system. The RG-AP520(W2) highly enhances user experience with multicast video over wireless networks.

Flexible Switching Between FAT & FIT Modes

The RG-AP520(W2) supports flexible switching over the FAT and FIT modes according to the networking requirements of different industries. When there are few APs, users can adopt the FAT mode for easy, independent network establishment. For large-scale networks, the APs can operate at FIT mode and works with RG-WS ACs to allow centralized management of all the APs and other aspects such as security, traffic management, QoS and IP management. Smooth transition from one mode to another, the RG-AP520(W2) fully protects user investment.

Flexible Hybrid Management

There are 3 different management modes for selection. For the Ruijie Cloud option, no extra cost or firmware upgrade is required, which saves company expenses and time.
Selection between Ruijie Cloud and Hardware Controller

In some cases, a local on-premise wireless controller is required due to some business requirement. Ruijie SMB AP allows the flexibility according to customer preference, the AP can be either managed by Ruijie Cloud or on-premise wireless controller.

Ruijie Cloud and Hardware AC Comparison

PPSK Enterprise Authentication

For internal staff, it is hassled to maintain the pre-defined PSK and distribute among them. Especially for offboarding employee, potential Wi-Fi PSK leaked out could be harmful to your network.

With Ruijie PPSK, you now can easily provide different Wi-Fi password for each user. It tied to individual end user devices like laptop or smartphone and the same password can’t be used by other. Possibility of Wi-Fi password leak out eliminated completely
