The Fusion of Wi-Fi 7 and RUCKUS Technologies
Now, the provocative question: What sets the RUCKUS R770 apart in delivering these exceptional benefits?
The RUCKUS R770 merges the potent capabilities of Wi-Fi 7 with RUCKUS’ proprietary Radio Frequency (RF) technologies, like Beamflex+ and time-tested RUCKUS AI (Artificial Intelligence). This powerful combination brings forth a premium experience for the world of higher education. Setting it apart from other Wi-Fi 7 offerings, the RUCKUS R770 boasts five key differentiators:
- Exceptional throughput and capability
- Adaptive resilience
- Minimized latency
- Streamlined advanced security
- Built-in modern IoT (Internet of Things) stack
The RUCKUS R770, a tri-band concurrent indoor Access Point, unleashes 8 spatial streams (2×2:2 in 2.4GHz, 4×4:4 in 5GHz, 2×2:2 in 6GHz) and supports Wi-Fi 7’s groundbreaking features such as Multi-Link-Operation, Preamble Puncturing, 4K QAM (Quadrature Amplitude Modulation) Modulation, and 320MHz channels. It powers industry-leading performance environments with a remarkable combined data rate of 12.22 Gbps. Plus, the RUCKUS R770 ensures a bottleneck-free backhaul with a 10Gbps Ethernet port, maximizing the full potential of your Wi-Fi capabilities.
Empowering Higher Education with Exceptional Network Support
There’s an imperative need for robust support that transcends ordinary boundaries for higher education institutions whether it’s fueling AR/VR applications, data-intensive 4K/8K video streaming, or the demands of latency-sensitive voice and data applications.
Let’s not overlook the reality that college and university campuses brim with a multitude of Wi-Fi-enabled devices. The cleaner 6 GHz frequency paves the way for improved indoor coverage and capacity, catering to large lecture halls, libraries, and dormitories. It ensures that students enjoy unwavering Wi-Fi connectivity across campus.
With the RUCKUS R770’s remarkable capabilities and throughput, it efficiently handles an increased load of concurrent connections, keeping up with the rising demand for connectivity on campus. Coupled with the low-latency attributes of Wi-Fi 7 and RUCKUS R770, the concept of real-time streaming IP audio for extensive lecture halls becomes a distinct possibility.
Harnessing the power of RUCKUS Networks’ patented Beamflex+ technology, the RUCKUS R770 can help higher education institutions to amplify their capacity, extend their coverage, and elevate throughput even further when working in 6 GHz low-power mode.
Improving Network Efficiency with AI
As higher education networks evolve in complexity, IT teams are on a relentless quest for enhanced operational efficiency. RUCKUS AI deploys a host of features like AI-driven network assurance, Hybrid Federated Machine Learning, Graph AI, AI-driven probe suppression, AI-driven radio resource management, and AI-driven Wi-Fi 7 resiliency. This not only heightens the reliability of higher education networks but also allows the RUCKUS R770 to deliver a premium connectivity experience while streamlining IT operations.
The RUCKUS R770 takes an assertive step towards future-proofing higher education networks. It bridges the divide between siloed networks, unifying Wi-Fi and non-Wi-Fi wireless technologies into a single, cohesive network. How? By incorporating built-in BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy) or Zigbee radios and extending compatibility with future wireless technologies through the onboard USB (Universal Serial Bus) port.
Aside from that, there are two built-in supports that guarantee seamless interoperability among many IoT solutions. First is “Matter”, a protocol that allows your phone to communicate with other devices. Second is “Thread” which is also a protocol that makes Matter perform better. For higher education institutions, this translates into unraveled deployment of improved student safety measures and precedes for a smart campus experience, bringing a sense of comfort and familiarity to students’ home-away-from-home.
Fortified Security at Every Level
The RUCKUS R770 proudly upholds a multi-layer security framework, encompassing secure boot, TPM (Trusted Platform Module) 2.0, and the exclusive DPSK3, among others. RUCKUS’ very own DPSK3 harnesses the strength of DPSK (Dynamic Pre-Shared Key) within WPA3 (Wi-Fi Protected Access 3), seamlessly merging advanced security with the adaptability and user-friendliness of dynamic passphrases to fortify network access security. Secure boot and TPM 2.0 extend unwavering hardware-level protection, standing guard against malware and sophisticated cyber threats, guaranteeing that only trusted software runs on the AP. In the context of higher education, these safeguards are indispensable as data security and privacy compliance take center stage for it.
