RUCKUS Release Brand New Wi-Fi 6 Access Points


We’re excited to announce the release of the new RUCKUS R850 and R550 access points (APs). These are the newest additions to the growing suite of Wi-Fi 6 access points in the market place, bought to you by RUCKUS. These new additions to the portfolio offer superior performance for the next generation of network connectivity, now.

The R850 is a high-end indoor access point, designed specifically for ultra-dense indoor locations such as conference centres, lecture halls and stadiums. The R550 is mid-range indoor AP built for medium-density indoor locations such as primary and secondary education and small to medium enterprises.

Both APs deliver reliable, secure, and high-performance connectivity. The R850 and R550 can be managed with SmartZone and ZoneDirector controllers, RUCKUS Cloud, and Unleashed. 

For more information about Unleashed & SmartZone, you should check out our upcoming webinar on May 27th where we will be demonstrating how the two technologies compare and providing an overview of how the technologies have changed with live demos and Q&A. You can register for the technical webinar here as well as checking out all other planned events over the coming weeks.

According to CommScope, the SmartZone controller-based R850 and R550 are expected to be available for order and shipment in mid-May followed with cloud-based management in mid-June. Watch this space, or just let us know if this is of interest and we will make sure you are the first to know.
