LWT Code: RUC3478144    Manufacturer Code: 901-R720-WW00


A perfect storm of technology trends - the Internet of Things (IoT), bandwidth-hungry cloud and video applications, an explosion of new devices - is driving organizations in every industry to upgrade their WLAN infrastructure. 802.11ac Wave 2 can deliver the performance you need, but it can also quickly overload existing 1 Gbps backhaul connections. Who wants to bear the cost of running more Ethernet and using more switch ports to ensure greater throughput between wired and wireless?
The Ruckus R720 indoor access point is our highest-capacity four-stream 802.11ac Wave 2 Wi-Fi AP. It features multi-gigabit technology, so you can step up to faster Wi-Fi speeds and 2.5GbE backhaul connectivity without having to replace your Cat 5e cabling or use additional switch ports. Deploy a high-performance, highly resilient Wi-Fi network without breaking the bank.
With hundreds of devices and nonstop wireless noise and interference, busy indoor environments can be the most challenging Wi-Fi deployments. The R720 makes it easy to deliver reliable, high-performance connectivity in large enterprises, office buildings, university campuses, convention centers, and practically any other indoor space.
The R720 802.11ac Wave 2 Wi-Fi AP incorporates patented technologies found only in the Ruckus Wi-Fi portfolio.
- Extended coverage with patented BeamFlex+ utilizing mult-directional antenna patterns
- Improved throughput with ChannelFly which dynamically find less congested Wi-Fi channels to use
With four stream MU-MIMO connectivity, the R720 can simultaneously transmit to multiple Wave 2 clients in the widest available channels, drastically improving RF efficiency even for non-Wave 2 clients. Additionally, the R720's integrated multi-gigabit technology provides a 2.5Gbps Ethernet interface, so you can more than double your backhaul capacity utilizing existing switches.
Whether you're deploying ten or ten thousand APs, the R720 is also easy to manage through Ruckus' appliance, virtual and cloud management options.
