RG-AP840-I is a high-performance Wi-Fi 6 enterprise AP designed for the majority of indoor scenarios. With the built-in IoT module, enterprise customers can be ready for future IoT expansion to boost the operational efficiency and customer experience.
The Ruijie RG-AP840-I supports concurrent dual-band dual-radio (2×2:2 in 2.4GHz, 4×4:4 in 5GHz), up to 6 total spatial streams and a maximum of 5.2Gbps wireless throughput. Taking the advantage of Wi-Fi 6 OFDMA Modulation, MU-MIMO, and BSS Color Spatial Reuse, the RG-AP840-I guarantees minimal signal interference and a maximum of 1024 client connections.
High Expandability Design
With the design of 3 Gigabit Ethernet ports, the RG-AP840-I not only can expand uplink bandwidth, but can also extend the LAN port for PC, printer and other IP terminal connections. The LAN3 Port is specially design for external IoT sensor connection with PoE out (passive) feature. Therefore, no extra power adaptor is needed for the sensor.
Additionally, the RG-AP840-I is IoT ready enabled by the built-in BLE module, without the need of external module and extra investment.
Wi-Fi 6 Technology
● 1024-QAM High-speed Access
The RG-AP840-I 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-AP840-I 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-AP840-I 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.

● Industry-leading Local Forwarding Technology
Employing an industry-leading local forwarding technology, the RG-AP840-I 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-AP840-I. 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-AP840-I 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-AP840-I 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-AP840-I 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
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 AC
No additional AAA required
