802.11ac AP with BeamFlex+ for Cost-Effective Deployments in High Density Outdoor Venues
At stadiums, transit hubs, smart cities, and other crowded outdoor public venues, users want the same fast, reliable Wi-Fi connectivity they expect in their homes or offices. For operators, however, delivering that can be immensely challenging-and expensive.
The Ruckus T310 Series of 802.11ac Wave 2 access points provides industry-leading Ruckus Networks performance in an economical, industrial-grade form factor designed for crowded outdoor locations. These ultra-lightweight, low-profile APs feature internal omni-directional or high-gain directional antennas for specific coverage, eliminating the need for bulky panel antennas and confusing and expensive external RF cabling.
Choose from either omni, 30-degree narrow beam or 120-degree sector antennas to enable fast, low-cost installation, extended range, and best-in-class throughput in the most challenging outdoor environments.
The T310d, s, n models have a USB 2.0 port to support additional RF technologies such as Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) and optional DC power source for use with solar cell deployment.
Modern Wi-Fi device users expect reliable connectivity-anywhere, anytime. But in crowded outdoor venues with thousands of users and constant RF noise, they are often frustrated by poor coverage, dropped connections, and reduced data rates. These aggravating Wi-Fi experiences can easily translate to negative perceptions of the venue and the service provider, resulting in loss of business. The quality of the network experience becomes the "litmus test" for acceptance or rejection.
As the market leader in outdoor Wi-Fi deployments, Ruckus knows that one AP solution cannot meet every possible challenge of varied and complex outdoor requirements. This is why the Ruckus T310 802.11ac Wave 2 series is designed with more variety than any other outdoor AP in the market today. Available with either internal omni-directional antennas or internal high-gain directional antenna models, the T310 Series uses patented Ruckus antenna optimization and interference mitigation technologies to improve throughput, connection reliability, and deliver industry-leading 802.11ac Wave 2 performance to every connected client. At the same time, the T310 Series is designed for fast, simple installation with an ultra-lightweight, low profile, IP-67 rated enclosure that can stand up to the most challenging outdoor environments.
At Ruckus, we know that outdoor AP deployments are especially challenging for installation and maintenance, which is why Ruckus outdoor APs use a variety of technologies, like SmartMesh that help simplify outdoor AP deployment.
The Ruckus T310 Series is perfect for high-density outdoor public venues such as airports, convention centers, plazas, malls, smart cities, and other dense urban environments. By providing a superior Wi-Fi experience to every user in high-density outdoor locations, venue operators can improve guest satisfaction and loyalty, deliver new kinds of wireless application services, and increase revenues.
