R500 Indoor Access Point
Indoor 802.11ac Wi-Fi Access Point for Dense Device Environments
With an explosion of new mobile devices and applications, even small and midsize venues now need big-league Wi-Fi. But finding the right balance between performance, features, and cost isn’t easy.
The Ruckus R500 802.11ac indoor access point delivers the ideal combination of capacity, reliability, and affordability for medium-density locations. It’s the only 802.11ac AP in its class that includes patented Ruckus antenna optimizations and interference mitigation technologies—the same ones used in our premier high-density APs—in a low-profile form factor designed and priced for smaller venues.
In small and midsize businesses, hotels, retail outlets, branches, and other medium-density venues, the R500 delivers consistently great Wi-Fi experiences—at a price that makes sense.
