So, in this article, we will discuss more deeply one of the access point products from a brand that is well known for its quality, namely Ruijie. How to explain it, let’s look at the following explanation.

Get to know Access Point Ruijie

Before discussing the Access Point Ruijie, it would be nice for us to know what an access point is. Access point is a network hardware that is used on a wireless local network that can send and receive data. In other words, an access point can connect users with other users on a particular network that functions as a WLAN interconnection point and a fixed cable network.

This access point has a transceiver that is capable of transmitting and receiving signals from the client server or to the client server. To be able to transmit data wirelessly, this access point can be connected to several other network devices such as routers, switches and hubs via Ethernet cables.

Access point function

The following are some of the functions of the access point that you need to know:

  1. As a DHCP server or giving IP addresses to each connected device automatically.
  2. Can manage access to each device based on MAC address.
  3. Provides WEP and WAP security features. Wireless network security with authentication can be used as a key given to the client at the access point. WAP can be used as a security method that complements WEP by adding decryption.
  4. Access points can connect wireless local networks with wired networks.

Ruijie RG-AP820-L


The Ruijie RG-AP820-L(V3) is a cost-effective entry-level wireless access point with a dual-radio dual-band Wi-Fi 6 design. The Ruijie RG-AP820-L access point has a simple shape but has high flexibility suitable for medium to small companies with abundant features to increase the spread of WiFi networks.

The Ruijie RG-AP820-L(V3) already supports a maximum wireless throughput of 2.97Gbps when 160MHz bandwidth in 5G radio mode is adopted (HE160). This access point is fully compliant with Wi-Fi 6 features and guarantees minimal signal interference.

Main feature

For the Ruijie RG-AP820-L feature, there are several things that are important, including being able to increase wireless security, management efficiency, and efforts to increase the latest firmware. For more details, you can see some of the main features of the following Ruijie RG-AP820-L.

High Speed ​​and Energy Efficient Wi-Fi 6 1024-QAM High Speed ​​Access

The RG-AP820-L(V3) adopts a dual-band dual-radio design. With the next generation 802.11ax for the 5GHz band, the maximum access speed can reach 2.4Gbps. If dual-radio is enabled simultaneously, the high-speed Wi-Fi throughput can reach 2.97Gbps, offering a true high-speed experience.

OFDMA High Density User Access

The RG-AP820-L(V3) supports OFDMA 802.11ax, which divides a WLAN channel into narrower subchannels, with each user occupying one or more subchannels. By scheduling multiple users to receive and send packets simultaneously through the AP, user competition and back-off can be reduced, thereby reducing network latency, and increasing network efficiency. In a high-density deployment environment, the average rate per user quadruples compared to Wi-Fi 5 devices.

Spatial Reuse with BSS Colors

The RG-AP820-L(V3) supports spatial reuse with 802.11ax basic service set color (BSS). It marks the BSS of different WLANs in the network with different color identifiers (BSS colors), and further divides them into internal and external BSS. The packet receiving and sending thresholds for the internal and external BSS are maintained separately. When receiving a packet, the BSS color is picked up to quickly identify external BSS packets. If the signal strength is lower than the external BSS reception threshold, the packet is ignored. At the same time the internal BSS packet transmission will not be affected. This technology improves channel reuse in high density scenarios, greatly reducing the impact of shared channel interference for true network deployments.

Improved Performance from Wi-Fi 5

The RG-AP820-L(V3) provides a sizeable performance boost even in environments with Wi-Fi 5-only user devices. This means the RG-AP820-L(V3) is not only future-proof but also capable of providing instant upgrades over Wi-Fi 5 APs.

Energy Saving for Green and Low Carbon Networks

Several energy-saving technologies have been used in the RG-AP820-L(V3), such as single standby antenna, dynamic MIMO, enhanced automatic power-saving transmission, and packet power control. With a high-performance power circuit design, the RG-AP820-L(V3) is able to save energy while providing high-speed wireless access.

Industry leading Local Forwarding Technology

Using the industry’s leading local forwarding technology, the RG-AP820-L(V3) breaks through the limitations of wireless controller traffic congestion. Working together with the RG-WS series of wireless controllers, users can flexibly pre-configure the data forwarding mode for the RG-AP820-L(V3). The AP also controls whether data is passed through the wireless controller according to the user’s SSID and VLAN, or directly sent to the wired network for data exchange.

Local forwarding technology can classify and forward time-sensitive data requiring real-time transmission over wired networks, to greatly reduce the traffic pressure on wireless controllers and meet the high traffic transmission requirements of the 802.11ax standard network.

Abundant QoS policies

The RG-AP820-L(V3) supports various QoS policies. For example, providing WLAN/AP/STA and Wi-Fi multimedia (WMM) based bandwidth limits that define different priorities for different service data. The RG-AP820-L(V3) realizes timely and quantitative audio/video transmission and ensures smooth operation of multi-media applications.

With multicast-to-unicast technology, RG-AP820-L(V3) solves the problem of video delay due to packet loss or high latency, and greatly improves the user experience of multicast video services from wireless networks.

Comprehensive Security Protection Safe User Access

The RG-AP820-L(V3) supports multiple authentication methods such as web, 802.1X, PPSK (one-time dynamic password), voucher/access code, user account, and social authentication (Ruijie Cloud required). Compliant with standard NAC, it offers a series of control policies in terms of authentication, authorization, device compliance check, and network attack detection/prevention, etc. All these features guarantee high network security for authenticated users.

Pre-Shared Private Key (PPSK)

Traditional Pre-shared Keys (PSK) that are shared by all users in a WLAN carry a high risk of PSK leaks. Ruijie Personal PSK (PPSK) is an easy-to-setup wireless authentication method with enterprise-grade security. Credentials can be created and revoked individually. Each PPSK can also be bound to a unique user/machine.

With PPSK, the benefits are:

  • High security by providing different passwords for each user and device for the same 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 and Ruijie Cloud Service
  • No additional AAA servers needed
Virtual AP Technology

With virtual AP technology, RG-AP820-L(V3) supports up to 16 ESSIDs. Network administrators can separately encrypt and isolate VLANs or subnets of the same SSID, thus allowing the authentication mode and encryption mechanism to be defined for each SSID.

Comprehensive Wireless Protection

Combined with the RG-WS series wireless controllers, the RG-AP820-L(V3) offers a variety of security features including WIDS (Wireless Intrusion Detection System), RF interference tracking, rogue AP suppression, anti-ARP spoofing, DHCP protection and so on for security protection. thorough.
