Essential Install | Network and Wireless Technology Atlona’s OmniStream R-Type can solve an imbalance of inputs to outputs Other parts of the range include Ruckus’ 802.11ac Unleashed access points, packed with ten years of patented Wi-Fi performance innovation. Users can take advantage of higher speeds, better coverage, and improved reliability through key Ruckus technologies, such as BeamFlex+ Adaptive Antenna Technology, combined with MU-MIMO (Multi-User Multiple-Input Multiple-Output) capability, which boosts network throughput by serving multiple clients simultaneously. Traditional wireless antennas are either ‘omnidirectional’ (radiating signals in all directions) or ‘directional’ (radiating signals in one direction). Ruckus BeamFlex Adaptive Antenna Technology enables the antenna system within a Ruckus AP to continually sense and optimise its performance according to environment. BeamFlex+ is an enhancement of Ruckus BeamFlex, enabling antennas to adapt to client device orientation, as well as client device location. The new product introductions include the R510-U entry-level Indoor 2x2:2 2.4/5GHz 802.11ac Wave 2 Wi-Fi access point, delivering up to twice the range and coverage of competitive products in medium-density deployments. The new R610-U high-level Indoor 802.11ac Wave 2 Wi-Fi access point is designed for high-density environments, offering three-stream MU-MIMO 3x3:3 and data rates of up to 1900 Mbps. The Ruckus Unleashed T710-U is an IP67-rated high capacity outdoor 802.11ac Wi-Fi Access Point, and the H510-U is a wall-mounted 2x2:2 802.11ac Wave 2 Wi-Fi access point combined with a wired switch for the connection of up to five wired devices with integrated Gb Ethernet ports. Designed for easy installation over a standard wall outlet, the H510-U offers PoE input (802.3af/at) for easy deployment without additional power outlets. Habitech is also now stocking Ihiji’s new APP-750 Network Management Appliance, giving UK integrators direct access to Ihiji products, complete with lower shipping costs and local support. The Ihiji APP-750, which replaces the former APP-500, features an upgraded chipset for improved performance and a network bus that allows it to more accurately test modern ISP speeds up to 1-Gigabit-per-second. Priced to fit within any budget, and engineered to accommodate current technology demands, the APP-750 offers a robust solution in a market that is increasingly demanding high- performance, flexible Remote Systems Management (RSM) solutions. The APP-750 can be paired with either of the recently announced Ihiji Invision licensing plans. For instance, when the APP-750 is paired with a new I
