With wireless network security, radio frequency control, mobile access, QoS guarantee, seamless roaming and other important factors considered, the RG-AP840-I can be implemented with Ruijie wireless controller to achieve user data forwarding. wireless, security and access control. The Ruijie RG-AP840I Dubai supports simultaneous operation in 802.11ax, 802.11ac Wave 2, 802.11ac Wave 1, and 802.11n modes. With wall and ceiling mount options, the AP can be safely and conveniently installed in various positions, such as walls and ceilings. The Ruijie RG-AP840I Dubai supports local power supply and PoE, which can be flexibly selected according to the power supply environment of the customer site. It is especially suitable for deployment in large campuses, corporate offices, and other high-density scenarios.


High-reliability 3-port design

With the 3 network port design, the Ruijie RG-AP840I Dubai not only solves the problem of interface data backup, but also provides flexible network modes for networks that require internal and external network isolation. LAN3 port also supports external power supply for PSE and other module expansion such as IoT to enrich application scenarios.

1024-QAM high-speed access rate

The Ruijie RG-AP840I Dubai adopts dual radio dual-band design, and 2G + 5G is recommended. With next generation 802.11ax for 5G, the maximum access can reach 4.8Gbps. If dual radio is enabled at the same time, high-speed Wi-Fi can reach 5.2Gbps, offering the true high-speed experience.

OFDMA High Density User Access

The Ruijie RG-AP840I Dubai supports 802.11ax OFDMA, which divides the WLAN channel into a plurality of narrower sub-channels, with each user occupying one or more sub-channels. By scheduling multiple users to simultaneously receive and send packets through the AP, user competition and network delay can be reduced, improving network efficiency. In a high-density deployment and access environment, the average rate per user increases to four times that of 802.11ac.

BSS Color Spatial Multiplexing

The Ruijie RG-AP840I Dubai supports 802.11ax Basic Service Set (BSS) color spatial multiplexing to identify the BSSs of different WLANs in the network by different colors (BSS color) and divide them into internal and external BSSs. Different thresholds for receiving and sending packets can be maintained. When a packet is received, the BSS coloring is used to quickly determine the packet from the external BSS. If the signal strength is less than the receive threshold of the external BSS, the packet will be ignored. The internal BSS package will not be affected. This technology can implement channel multiplexing in a high-density scenario, greatly reducing the impact of co-channel interference on actual network deployment.

Energy saving design

The Ruijie RG-AP840I Dubai adopts advanced power-saving features including single-antenna standby technology, dynamic MIMO power-saving technology, automatic power-saving enhanced transmission technology, and per-packet power control technology. Together with the high-performance power supply design, the RG-AP840-I ensures high-speed wireless access while reducing power consumption.

Smart recognition function

The RG-AP840I supports smart terminal recognition, which can identify PCs and smart mobile terminals, including iOS and Android.

Industry leading local forwarding technology

Employing industry-leading local forwarding technology, the Ruijie RG-AP840I Dubai eliminates the traffic bottleneck of wireless controllers. In cooperation with the RG-WS series of wireless controllers, users can flexibly preset the data forwarding mode for RG-AP840-I. Local forwarding technology can determine whether to forward data to the wireless controller based on the user’s SSID or VLAN, or directly send the data to the wired network for data exchange. Local forwarding technology can forward real-time, delay-sensitive data transmissions over the wired network. Significantly relieves traffic pressure on wireless controllers and better meets the high-traffic transmission requirements of 802.11ax network.

Rich QoS Policies

The Ruijie RG-AP840I Dubai supports a wide range of QoS policies. For example, it provides bandwidth limitations in WLAN/AP/STA and Wi-Fi Multimedia (WMM) modes that defines different priorities for different service data. The RG-AP840-I realizes timely and quantitative transmission of audio and video and ensures smooth operation of multimedia applications. With multicast to unicast conversion technology, the RG-AP840-I solves the problem of video delay due to packet loss or long delay in wireless video on demand (VoD) system. The RG-AP840I greatly enhances the user experience with multicast video over wireless networks.

Secure user access

The Ruijie RG-AP840I Dubai supports a wide range of authentication methods, including web, 802.1x, MAC address, and local authentication. The standard network access control system has a set of control policies in terms of user access, authorization, equipment compliance checking, network behavior monitoring, network attack prevention, etc. All of these control features ensure that users are authenticated before accessing network services securely.

Virtual AP technology

With virtual AP technology, the Ruijie RG-AP840I Dubai supports up to 48 ESSIDs. The network administrator can encrypt and isolate separate VLANs or subnets with the same SSID. In this way, the implementation enables the specified authentication mode and encryption mechanism for each SSID.

Complete wireless protection

Together with the RG-SNC and RG-WS wireless controllers, the Ruijie RG-AP840I Dubai offers a wide range of security features including WIDS (Wireless Intrusion Detection System), RF jamming tracking, rogue AP containment, anti-ARP spoofing, DHCP protection and more. for comprehensive security protection.

Various user-friendly authentication options

Implemented with Ruijie or multi-service AC authentication system, the RG-AP840I supports convenient Protected Extensible Authentication Protocol (PEAP), SMS authentication and QR code authentication. If users authenticate through PEAP, they only need to perform password authentication once. That means they only need to enter user credentials during their initial visit to the network.

Flexible switching between FAT/FIT (Stand-Alone /Controlled) modes

The Ruijie RG-AP840I Dubai supports flexible switching between FAT and FIT modes according to the network requirements of different industries. In FIT mode, installation can be completed without configuration, and comprehensive remote management significantly improves the efficiency of wireless network operation, maintenance, and management.

Web administration interface

The Ruijie RG-AP840I Dubai provides a web management interface for ACs and APs. Not only wireless settings can be easily implemented, but the entire wireless network can also be operated through the interface. Users can not only manage access points and connected users through the CA web interface, but can also limit the user’s speed and connection to the network, making it easier for IT staff to plan, operate and maintain the wireless network.

Network management software

The Ruijie RG-AP840I Dubai can be deployed with Ruijie SNC network management software, which enables management of all wireless controllers and wireless APs in the network, including device configuration backup, status monitoring of the device and the wireless heat map to show the wireless signal distribution of wireless access points in the real environment.
