I just got in the Ruckus R750 it is the first Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) AP to be certified by the Wi-Fi alliance. I did speed and distance testing at 3 locations in my home. I put the R750 on a clean 80Mhz 5Ghz channel running off the DC power supply. I ran a iperf server on the phones and a jperf client on a PC connected to the same gigabit ethernet switch as the Access Point. Here are my results.
First I tested the iPhone11 at 5 feet in my QI charging cradle. I averaged 600Mbps with spikes to 650Mbps.
Next I tested the S10 at the same location and had almost the same results 600Mbps average with spikes to 650Mbps.
Next I tested at a location 25 feet from the access point with direct line of sight. Here the iPhone 11 was averaging 400Mbps with spikes to 475Mbps and a low of 250Mbps.
Then I tested the S10 at the same location and saw a average of 425Mbps with spikes to 450Mbps and a low of 375Mbps.
Next I tested at a location 50 feet away with 3 walls in between the AP and IPhone11. Here I saw a average of 120Mbps with spikes to 135Mbps and a low of 20Mbps.
Then I tested the S10 at this location I saw a average of 45Mbps with spikes to 60Mbps and a low of 25Mbps.
Lastly I did one more test the R750 should be capable of full 4×4 operation over standard 802.3at PoE+ so I ran one more test powered this way. I manually selected Power Consumption Mode 802.3at+ PoE for the R750 from the zonedirector restarted the AP and then verified via the CLI. Running in PoE mode I saw about the same numbers as I did running off the DC power supply averaging 625Mbps with spikes to 650Mbps.
In summery the Ruckus R750 is a great mainstream 4×4 Wi-Fi 6 Access Point that can hit high speeds even at distance. The R750 is the first Wi-Fi 6 AP to be certified by Wi-Fi Alliance as Wi-Fi CERTIFIED 6 . These would be great for hotels, schools, managed care facilities and the enterprise. The R750 will fit into your current network it can be run off a standard 802.3at PoE+ gigabit switch. It also has a 2.5Gbps ethernet option for high client dense situations where you have deployed multi gig switches like the ICX7150-C10ZP-2X10GR. We have more information on the R750 here.
