Embedded Controller

Like other GWN Series APs, the GWN7600LR has a controller-less distributed network management design and an embedded controller within the product’s web user interface. This allows each access point to manage a network of up to 30 GWN76xx series APs independently without needing separate controller hardware/software and without a single point-of-failure.

More Features:

  • Up to 300-meter coverage range— ideal for outdoor use
  • 1.27Gbps wireless throughput and 2x Gigabit wireline ports
  • Dual-band 2×2:2 MU-MIMO with beamforming technology
  • Support 802.3af and 802.3at Power-over-Ethernet (PoE/PoE+)
  • Controller-less network management, auto-discovery, auto provisioning
  • Offers simultaneous dual-band WiFi signals
  • Advanced WiFi security features

Ruckus Webinar: “Exploiting next generation 802.11ac with smarter antennas”

Ruckus is currently hosting a series of We All Want Better Wi-Fi webinars to help educate you on how to combat inconsistent Wi-Fi performance that affects our daily productivity:

Understanding the complexities of next-generation Wi-Fi can present a challenge. An optimized 802.11ac infrastructure comes only as a result of solid wireless fundamentals, thoughtful radio design, smart antenna systems, and dynamic RF adaptation. So how can you get the most out of 11ac?

Want Better Wi-Fi is an educational Webinar Series that offers the real facts and physics necessary to achieve better Wi-Fi. Join us for these highly informative sessions to gain the knowledge you need to make the best wireless networking decisions possible.

Next up in their webinar series is:

Exploiting next generation 802.11ac with smarter antennas | Wednesday, 8AM PST, July 30th

“We all #WantBetterWiFi and the most logical step to achieving this is exploring the new 802.11ac standard. However, it’s important to understand the differences between .11ac wave 1 and .11ac wave 2, and the potential pitfalls involved in an uninformed upgrade. Fully understanding the benefits of this exciting wireless technology, both short and long term, will enable you to make solid network design and deployment decisions.”
