Wi-Fi 6 Technology

1024-QAM High-speed Access

The RG-AP840-I adopts the dual-radio dual-band design and 2G+5G is recommended. With the next-generation 802.11ax for 5G, the maximum access rate can reach 4.8Gbps. If dual-radio is enabled concurrently, the high-speed Wi-Fi can reach 5.2Gbps, offering the true high-speed experience.

OFDMA High-density User Access

The RG-AP840-I supports OFDMA of 802.11ax, which divides the WLAN channel into a 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 to four times of 802.11ac.

Bi-Directional MU-MIMO

Compared with the previous Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ac) with only downlink MU-MIMO support, Wi-Fi 6 supports both uplink and downlink MU-MIMO(multi-user, multiple-input and multiple-output). Therefore, Ruijie RG-AP800 Series access points can connect clients simultaneously, significantly improving the wireless performance and experience. 

TWT(Target Wake Time)

Target wake time (TWT) is used to help minimize contention between clients and reduce the amount of time a client in power save mode to be awake. Energy consumption is reduced by up to 70% of the battery consumption, thereby improving battery life.

Spatial Reuse with BSS Color

The RG-AP840-I 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 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 the external BSS. If the signal strength is lower than the receiving threshold of the external BSS, the packet will be ignored. The transmission of the internal BSS packet 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.
