RUCKUS ZoneFlex R550

RUCKUS ZoneFlex R550

Wi-Fi capacity requirements in classrooms, office spaces, and medium-size venues are rising due to the increase in the number of Wi-Fi connected devices. An increase in bandwidth requirements for applications and an ever-growing assortment of IoT devices puts further strain on already stretched Wi-Fi networks.

The R550 access point (AP) with the latest Wi-Fi 6 (802.11 ax) technology delivers the ideal combination of increased capacity, improved coverage and affordability in dense environments. The R550 is our mid- range dual-band, dual-concurrent AP that supports four spatial streams (2x2:2 in 2.4GHz/5GHz). The R550 supports peak data rates of up to 1774 Mbps and efficiently manages up to 512 clients connections.

  • Stunning Wi-Fi Performance - Mitigate interference and extend coverage with patented BeamFlex+™ adaptive antenna technology utilizing several directional antenna patterns
  • Serve more devices - Connect more devices simultaneously with four MU-MIMO spatial streams and concurrent dual-band 2.4/5GHz radios while enhancing device performance
  • Converged access point - Allow customers to eliminate siloed networks and unify Wi-Fi and IoT technologies into one single network by using built-in BLE and Zigbee, and also expand to any future wireless technologies
  • Automate Optimal Throughput - ChannelFly dynamic channel technology uses machine learning to automatically find the least congested channels. You always get the highest throughput the band can support
  • Better Mesh Networking - Reduce expensive cabling, and complex mesh configurations by checking a box with SmartMesh wireless meshing technology to dynamically create self-forming, self-healing mesh networks
  • More than Wi-Fi - Support services beyond Wi-Fi with RUCKUS IoT Suite, Cloudpath security and onboarding software, SPoT Wi-Fi locationing engine, and RUCKUS analytics
