Ruijie RG-AP180 Wall AP Series is a next-generation Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) with built-in IoT module wall plate wireless access point designed for hotels, offices and dormitories with Smart IoT integration demands. The RG-AP180 Series has design for universal socket standard with integrated multiple Gigabit Ethernet LAN ports for extended connectivty for IPTV or Office Equipment application purpose. Featuring an exquisite design and easy deployment, the AP can be installed on the junction box without damaging the wall finishes, which offers a better solution for wireless network deployment for scenarios like the hotels.
With latest 802.11ax 1024-QAM modulation technology, the dual-radio dual-band design RG-AP180 wall plate access point offers maximum access rate up to 1.2Gbps for 5G. If dual-band is enabled concurrently, the high-speed Wi-Fi can reach 1.7745Gbps, offering a high-speed network experience.
Intelligent Local Forwarding
Employing Ruijie’s intelligent local forwarding technology, the RG-AP180 breaks through the limitation of traffic bottleneck of wireless controllers. In collaboration with the RG-WS Wireless Controller Series, users can flexibly configure the data forwarding mode for RG-AP180. 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
RG-AP180 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. RG-AP180 realizes timely and quantitative transmission of audio and video, and guarantees smooth operation of multi-media applications.
With the multicast-to-unicast technology, RG-AP180 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 networks.
Easy and Fast Deployment
The Ruijie AP180 Series Wall Plate AP adopts a wall-mounted design with 2-step easy deployment:
Step 1: Remove the original faceplate from the wall.
Step 2: Directly install the plug-and-play Wall AP and connect with original UTP cable (PoE).
This breaks through traditional wireless network construction methods by reusing existing network cables and minimizes the impact of network construction on hotel or similar settings. As no additional cabling is required, the Wall AP delivers maximum business agility and investment protection. Ruijie also offers a wide range of optional accessories to meet your unique deployment needs.
Traditional challenges on laying additional cabling for AP installation
1.3Full Signal Coverage
Traditional APs are installed in corridors (Ceiling) and the indoor network signals are weak or even completely degenerated after wall penetration. The Ruijie RG-AP180 series Wall Plate AP, on the other hand, can be installed inside the room and hence ensures full coverage anywhere for the best user experience of voice, video or Internet browsing.

1.5High Definition IPTV Application
Nowadays, IPTV service especially VoD (Video on Demand) are widely adopted by hotel chain group to deliver premium entertainment experience for their loyal guest. To guarantee for high quality IPTV service, sufficient IP bandwidth and low latency IP Network is the essential.
Ruijie RG-AP180 is feature-customized for hotel IPTV application, upto 4 High Definition TV can be connected via the Gigabit (1000M) LAN ports, and fully support video streaming and multicast protocol such as QoS, IGMP Snooping, 802.1q, etc.
With Ruijie patent CPP (CPU Protection Policy) technology, which further protect CPUs from being abused and attacked, allowing the most stable IPTV service connectivity offering.
Guarantee for Guest Comfort
Comfort is the MUST for guest relaxation. Traditional Wall AP with LED Status Indicator for engineer installation & troubleshooting use, the but light and LED status flashing will make disturbance on guest sleeping.
All Ruijie SME Wall AP designed with coverable plate, make guarantee for the guest comfortability.
Device Status Lighting is covered by plate
All Ruijie enterprise APs support hybrid management mode. Either deployed as standalone AP (Fat mode) or managed AP (Fit and MACC mode), the AP will detect the operation mode automatically without extra effort on firmware upgrade. For additional security and operation, we recommend the enterprise customers to choose either one of below wireless controller options depending on the functionality and capacity:
Below are the summarized feature highlights for various Ruijie management system options which target for specific industry segments:
*new feature to be available in year 2020 **Ruijie EG Gateway required
Flexible Guest Access Policy
Multi authentication options for guests and employees
For Hotel scenario, Ruijie also provide a customized authentication feature, namely “Account” authentication, simulating a PMS-like login experience but no need for any complex 3rd party PMS integration. Guest will login with their assigned Room Nos and Surname, every account can limit access policy such as concurrent devices, duration, and speed limit, etc.
High Availability Design
Authentication Offload and Acceleration
Powered by Ruijie Cloud and EasyGate (EG) security gateway, captive portal and account & voucher authentication can be managed by Cloud, but all security policy and enforcement will be processed locally at EG security gateway. It not only accelerates the overall authentication processing, and also provide additional service availability protection in case of Cloud or WLAN Controller is unreachable, all authentication service still un-interrupted.
Ruijie EG’s Authentication Offload and Acceleration
In the traditional network architecture where FIT APs are centrally managed by a wireless controller, packets received by the AP must be transmitted to the controller before being forwarded. When the wireless controller becomes faulty, the APs will fail to work properly causing whole network breakdown.
RIPT Disaster Recovery
Ruijie’s latest RIPT provides you a complete disaster recovery solution and enables the Wireless Controller Series to implement intelligent link perception. Once the faulty controller is detected, the APs will quickly switch to the intelligent mode to continue data forwarding, ensuring the high availability of the wireless network and keeping wireless users always online.
