Upon the uprising challenges of management efficiency and wireless security, all Ruijie enterprise APs support hybrid management mode. Either deployed as standalone AP (Fat mode) or managed AP (Fit mode), the AP will detect the operation mode automatically without extra effort on firmware upgrade. For additional security and operation, we recommend the enterprise customers to choose either one of the below wireless controller options depending on the functionality and capacity:
  • Public Cloud: Ruijie Cloud – Ruijie Public Cloud service (powered by RG-MACC) is targeted for the SME segment with integrated captive portal, authentication (such as PPSK for employees, Facebook, voucher, account, etc.), and reporting features. Together with Ruijie Cloud Mobile App (free download), SME customers can provision and manage their networks at fingertips.
  • Hybrid Cloud: RG-WS6000 Series Wireless Controller (on-premises) Plus Cloud Management (Optional) – targeted for enterprise office and campus with single or multiple sites and high-density AP deployment. The controller appliances are installed at the customer’s site with fully integrated wireless management and authentication feature, supporting up to 5000 APs per cluster. Optionally, the cloud management platform allows for value-added features like centralized device configuration and monitoring, AI radio (RF) optimization, reporting, etc.

Wi-Fi 6 Technology

11024-QAM High-speed Access

The RG-AP820-L(V2) adopts the dual-radio dual-band design and 2G+5G is recommended. With the next-generation 802.11ax for 5G, the maximum access rate can reach 4.8Gbps. If dual-radio is enabled concurrently, the high-speed Wi-Fi can reach 5.2Gbps, offering the true high-speed experience.

OFDMA High-density User Access

The RG-AP820-L(V2) supports OFDMA of 802.11ax, which divides the WLAN channel into a plurality of narrower subchannels, with each user occupying one or more subchannels. By scheduling multiple users to receive and send packets concurrently via the AP, user competition and back-off can be reduced, thereby reducing network latency and improving network efficiency. In a high-density deployment environment, the average rate per user is increased to four times of 802.11ac.

Bi-Directional MU-MIMO

Compared with the previous Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ac) with only downlink MU-MIMO support, Wi-Fi 6 supports both uplink and downlink MU-MIMO(multi-user, multiple-input and multiple-output). Therefore, Ruijie RG-AP800 Series access points can connect clients simultaneously, significantly improving the wireless performance and experience. 

TWT(Target Wake Time)

Target wake time (TWT) is used to help minimize contention between clients and reduce the amount of time a client in power save mode to be awake. Energy consumption is reduced by up to 70% of the battery consumption, thereby improving battery life.

Spatial Reuse with BSS Color

The RG-AP820-L(V2) supports spatial reuse with basic service set (BSS) color of 802.11ax to identify the BSSs of different WLANs in the network by different coloring (BSS color), and further divide them into internal and external BSS. Different packet receiving and sending thresholds can be maintained. When receiving packets, BSS coloring is used to quickly identify the packet of the external BSS. If the signal strength is lower than the receiving threshold of the external BSS, the packet will be ignored. The transmission of the internal BSS packet will be not affected. This technology can implement channel reuse in a high-density scenario, greatly reducing the impact of co-channel interference for the actual network deployment.


Tolly Certified Capacity & Performance

Industry-leading Local Forwarding Technology

Employing an industry-leading local forwarding technology, the RG-AP820-L(V2) breaks through the limitation of traffic bottleneck of wireless controllers. In collaboration with the RG-WS Wireless Controller Series, users can flexibly pre-configure the data forwarding mode for RG-AP820-L(V2). The AP also controls whether the data will be forwarded via the wireless controller according to the SSID or user VLAN, or directly sent to the wired network for data exchange.

The local forwarding technology can classify and forward delay-sensitive data which requires real-time transmission through the wired network to greatly alleviate the traffic pressure on the wireless controllers and better meet the high traffic transmission requirements of the 802.11ax network.

Abundant QoS Policies

The RG-AP820-L(V2) supports a wide variety of QoS policies. For example, it provides WLAN/AP/STA-based bandwidth limitations and Wi-Fi multimedia (WMM) which defines different priorities for different service data. The RG-AP820-L(V2) realizes timely and quantitative transmission of audio and video, and guarantees smooth operation of multi-media applications.

With the multicast-to-unicast technology, the RG-AP820-L(V2) resolves the video lagging problem due to packet loss or high latency in the wireless network, and highly enhances user experience of the multicast video services of wireless network.


Comprehensive Security Protection

Secure User Access

The RG-AP820-L(V2) supports a wide range of authentication methods such as web, 802.1x, PPSK (one-time dynamic password for staff), voucher/ access code, user account, and social authentication. Complying with the standard network access control, it offers a set of control policies in terms of user access, authorization, equipment compliance check, network behavior monitoring, network attack prevention, etc. All these control features guarantee high network security for authenticated users.


Various enterprise authentication options for guests and employees

Personal Pre-shared Keys (PPSK)

   Simple and Effective Wireless Security Practice


Traditional Pre-shared Keys (PSK) are shared by all users on a WLAN, giving it potential risk of PSK leak-out.

Ruijie Personal PSK (PPSK) is an easy-to-setup wireless authentication method with enterprise-grade security level. Credentials can be created and revoked individually. Each PPSK can also be tied to a unique user/ machine.

With PPSK, you can enjoy the benefits of:

  • High security by using different passwords for each user and device for individual SSID
  • Simple deployment with batch account creation
  • Ease of use, offering the same experience as WPA / WPA2-PSK
  • Out-of-box feature in Wireless Access Controller (AC) and Ruijie Cloud Service
  • No additional AAA required

Virtual AP Technology

With the virtual AP technology, the RG-AP820-L(V2) supports up to 32 ESSIDs. Network administrator can separately encrypt and isolate VLANs or subnets of the same SSID, thereby enabling specified authentication mode and encryption mechanism for each SSID.

Comprehensive Wireless Protection

Coupled with RG-WS6000 Series or RG-MACC Wireless Controllers, the RG-AP820-L(V2) offers a breadth of security features including WIDS (Wireless Intrusion Detection System), RF interference tracking, rogue AP containment, anti-ARP spoofing, DHCP protection and beyond for all-around security protection. 

Hybrid Management

Flexible Management Options
