High-Density WiFi Experience

Pre-AX, Minimizes Co-channel & Other Interferences

 
Pre-AX Technology Optimizing WiFi Experience
 
Pre-AX is adopted from 802.11ax technology to dynamically fine tune RSSI threshold to maximize the utilizable spectrum and allow more data to be transmitted. Each AP optimize the RF channel and power according to each client.
 

CorrectLink, Improves Traffic Load Balancing & Client Roaming

CorrectLink Technology Optimizing WiFi Experience
 
CorrectLink technology is designed to analyses the latency, jitter and the signal strength of each client. It also correlates with additional information like wireless channel utilization and throughput to optimize the best user experience for wireless client.
 

AirReorder, Smart Airtime Scheduling Technology

AirReorder Allocating Time Slots to Terminals
 
The fundamental of AirReorder is to allocate the equal time slot to ensure that each terminal can get the fairness of RF resources as possible. This can prevent lower data rate client to degrade entire network performance by occupying the limited shared medium.

Virtual AP Technology

Virtual AP Enhancing Network Security
 
In most of the enterprise today, providing a Guest WiFi to visitor is an essential. However, Guest WiFi might become another entry point for network intrusion either it is intended or not. 
 
Ruijie AP Virtualization technology allows to virtualize a physical AP into multiple virtual APs to handle different services. Different VAP can connect to the isolated AC to ensure the only authorized user access to right resource. 
 
With VAP, you can now enjoy its benefits of:
Resource isolation
Flexible authentication 
Minimize RF interference 
Cost effective & secured 
 
With the dual GE uplink design of AP740-I, two different CAPWAP tunnel separating employee WiFi and guest WiFi traffic into two different physical uplinks further enhanced the security. 
 

Virtual AC Technology

Virtual AC Enabling Centralized Management
 
Ruijie Network AC Virtualization technology help to virtualize multiple AC into single logical AC regardless of module or appliance-based AC. It supports to up 8 members of hardware AC in single high availability cluster. AP license is shared from the license pool regardless of the number of AC in the cluster. 
 
Its high availability feature ensures no business downtime in the event of one of AC fails. The failover mechanism is fully automated and completed within milliseconds, WiFi services resumed immediately in backup AC.
With the centralized management and distributed processing capability, it increases the scalability and resilience of entire Wireless Network. Simplified management streamlines the IT operation as well.
 

Exclusive PPSK Authentication

Per-user PSK Authentication
 
Traditional Pre-shared keys (PSK) are shared by all users on a WLAN, giving it potential risk of PSK leak-out. 
 
Ruijie Per-user PSK (PPSK) is an easy setup wireless authentication method with enterprise-class security level. Credentials can be created and revoked individually. Each PPSK can also be tied to a unique user/machine.
With PPSK, you can enjoy its benefit of:
 
High security by using different passwords for each user and device at individual SSID
Simple deployment, allows for batch account creation
Ease of use and offers the same experience as WPA / WPA2-PSK
Out-of-box feature in AC controller
No additional AAA required
 

Remote Intelligent Perception Technology (RIPT)

RIPT Disaster Recovery
 
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. 
 
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. 
 

Centralized or Distributed Intelligent Switching

  
Centralized Switching Distributed Switching
 
The Wireless Controller Series can be deployed at Layer 2 or Layer 3 level without modifying the original network architecture. Forming an integrated switching framework with the APs, the controllers handle all the AP data exchange management with ease.
 
With the industry-leading local forwarding technology, the Wireless Controller Series eliminates traffic bottlenecks that alternatives in the market have been struggling with. The local forwarding technology allows flexible deployment of AP data forwarding. In other words, the AP can determine whether to forward all data via the controller based on Service Set ID (SSID) and user VLAN, or to send the data directly to a wired network for local data exchange. 
 
The local forwarding technology enables large-scale, delay-sensitive, and real-time data transmission via the wired network. With the high throughput of 802.11ac and 802.11ax, it greatly alleviates the traffic pressure on the controller. The feature also makes the wireless controllers more adaptive to heavy traffic demand applications such as high definition Video on Demand (VoD) and Voice over Wireless LAN (VoWLAN) in the future.

Intuitive Web Management

 
Web Management Interface for Simplified Management
 
The Wireless Controller Series supports a web management interface, which provides simplified wireless configuration and high visibility for the whole network operation. With the AC web interface, the controllers manage not only the APs, but also the associated AP users. The feature achieves control on user bandwidth control and network access. Network administrator can hence plan, operate and maintain the wireless network with ease.
 

Outstanding Scalability and Power Redundancy

 
The RG-WS6816 model is another featured model. The controller supports up to 2 expansion modules, offering 4 1000BASE-T/1000BASE-X combo ports (WNM-4GE-S) and 2 10GBASE-X ports (WNM-2XS-S). The RG-WS6816 also supports up to 2 power modules for extra resiliency.
 

Ruijie Wireless LAN Controller Module

 
In the Wireless Controller Series, RG-M18000-WS-ED (for Ruijie RG-N18000 switch series respectively) take up a core role for centralized user management in Ruijie’s ingenious Digital Campus 21 Solution. 
 
Teaming up with the respective switch series and built-in/external 802.1X/Portal authentication systems, both wireless controller modules support unified wired and wireless authentication on the core device. The modules support an ultra-large ARP capacity, concurrent ≥90K IPv4/IPv6 dual stack devices for centralized authentication at up to 1,000 devices per second.
