Ruckus R Series Comparisons

The Ruckus R610 is the latest addition to the AC Phase 2 range of access points offered by Ruckus Wireless. It is marketed as their “Access Point for medium density venues” and sits firmly between the R510 and R710.

To compare specs so you can see where it fits within the family:

Radio Chains

  • Ruckus R510 2x2:2
  • Ruckus R610 3x3:3
  • Ruckus R710 4x4:4

Throughput (2.4GHz)

  • Ruckus R510 – 300Mbps
  • Ruckus R610 – 600Mbps
  • Ruckus R710 – 800Mbps

Throughput (5GHz)

  • Ruckus R510 – 867Mbps
  • Ruckus R610 – 1300Mbps
  • Ruckus R710 – 1733Mbps

Client Support

  • Ruckus R510 - 512
  • Ruckus R610 – 512
  • Ruckus R710 – 500

USB Port (for BLE)

  • Ruckus R510 – Yes
  • Ruckus R610 – Yes
  • Ruckus R710 – Ye

As you can see, the R610 fits nicely between the R510 and R710 so provides a good option for people who want a higher performance Access Point than the R510 but can’t quite afford the R710.

Of course to get the full benefit the client device needs to support 3 radio chains and AC phase 2 but this should start to be pretty standard moving forward.

Please note that the client limit is a hard limit and as soon as you apply a level of security this drops to a lower value. Also, it is not recommended to try and connect this many clients to 1 access point!
