CommScope expands RUCKUS WiFi 6 portfolio
CommScope has announced the latest additions to its WiFi 6 access point (AP) portfolio including the indoor RUKUS H550 and outdoor RUKUS T350 and new enterprise and service-provider features in RUKUS SmartZoneOS.
The H550 and T350 incorporate the countless wireless technologies seen in the modern device, including WiFi devices, IoT endpoints, Bluetooth Low Energy and Zigbee. It lets users deploy a single, converged network infrastructure that supports both end-user and operational needs.
Organisations can manage these new APs using any RUCKUS management option, including SmartZoneOS-based network controllers, RUCKUS Cloud and RUCKUS Unleashed.
The H550 AP powers the hyper-connected room, enabling hotel, apartment, dormitory and other MDU owners and operators to deliver multiple 4K video streams, IPTV, VR, VoIP and ultra-fast downloads alongside support for IoT endpoints and associated applications including connected entry and staff alerts.
With a slim, compact form factor and integrated switch ports, the H550 can be hidden discretely behind or next to cabinets, desks or TVs, providing PoE pass-through for VoIP phones and TVoIP.
The T350 AP delivers high-performance outdoor connectivity in a compact form factor, enabling it to meet the aesthetic requirements of smart spaces, community WiFi installations, airports and other large public venues. In addition to built-in IoT capabilities the T350 includes a USB port to support additional wireless protocols. The T350 is built to handle the harshest outdoor conditions, including extreme temperatures, humidity, wind, salt and fog.
SmartZoneOS powers a family of high-scale physical and virtual network controllers for use by service providers and large enterprises to manage wired and wireless networks.
