Hierarchical Distributive Architecture

Market-leading Performance

The i-Share+ solution adopts Ruijie’s leading hierarchical distributive architecture. The Master AP RG-AM5528 implements a distributive design with data forwarding and service management carried out on different modules. Supplementing with a 10G uplink interface, the Master AP totally eliminates data transmission bottleneck. The Mini APs, which are specifically designed for indoor installation, implement independent CPU for data processing and forwarding. The isolated RF chip enables multi-user scheduling. The innovative Master AP + Mini AP hierarchical architecture offers a comprehensive wireless solution with upgraded user experience.

         Evolution of i-Share Distributive Architecture

Adaptive to Every Challenging Scenario

The i-Share+ Mini APs offers an impressive dual-band dual-stream 802.11ac performance of 300Mbps+867Mbps. Two models are available to adapt to various challenging scenarios:

●RG-MAP552 enables ceiling or wall mount deployment. The compact AP is an ideal match for large-scale scenarios requiring new cabling.

●RG-MAP552-W resembles a wall AP and supports plug-and-play installation leveraging an existing 86-type faceplate. No additional cabling is required. In addition, the Mini AP offers an anti-theft design and a passthrough port to support renovation work with multiple sharing networks.

i-Share+ Mini APs Ideal for All Scenarios

Integrated Wired and Wireless Networking

The i-Share+ solution takes care of both wireless and wired network demands. While Wi-Fi connectivity is gaining significance, the solution also addresses the access needs of conventional wired devices (e.g. office desktop PCs and printers). Both Mini APs RG-MAP552 and RG-MAP552-W offer LAN port for easy wireless and wired network integration.

Simplified Site Visit with Extra Precision

The Master AP RG-AM5528, resembling an Ethernet switch, gears up with 24-port downlink, 2-port 1000Base-T and 2-port 1G/10GBase-X SFP+. With reference to the readily available wired network statistics, IT specialists can obtain site visit data for wireless deployment in a faster, more accurate and efficient manner. The i-Share+ solution totally outperforms the traditional to simplify site visit work and maximize implementation precision. 

100-Meter Cable for Flexible Deployment

For traditional AP installation/i-Share solution, coaxial cables are usually deployed. To achieve dual-stream MIMO, the conventional solution is to implement dual coaxial cables. In order to reduce signal attenuation and increase deployment distance, the solution sometimes require even thicker cables. However, the downside is increased investment cost and deployment complexity. The new i-Share+ solution, built on the firm foundation of the preceding third-generation structure, further optimizes the architecture by directly using CAT 5 or 6 cables for 100-meter deployment. It does not only support the lossless requirements for hundred meter deployment, but also meets the cabling standard. The solution offers unparalleled ease and flexibility for all the deployment stages.

         Cable Evolution of i-Share Solution

Unified Management of Large-scale AP Deployment

From the management side, the i-Share+ Master AP and Mini APs can be regarded as one access point. The latter acts like an RF card for the Master AP. No separate management, software upgrade, configuration assignment, AC license or PoE switch is required. To offer wireless coverage for 24 rooms, clients only need one Master AP to largely reduce maintenance resources. For a deployment scenario with up to 10,000 rooms, network administrators merely need to manage a few hundreds of APs in total.

i-Share+ System Architecture

Exceptional Performance and Reliability

Industry-leading Local Forwarding Technology

Employing an industry-leading local forwarding technology, the Master AP RG-AM5528 eliminates the traffic bottleneck of ACs. Teaming up the Ruijie RG-WS wireless controller series, users can flexibly configure the data-forwarding mode of the AP. In other words, the AP can control the data to be forwarded via the AC based on the SSID or user VLAN or enter the wired network for data exchange. The local forwarding technology can forward large-scale, delay-sensitive, and real-time transmission data through the wired network, greatly alleviating the traffic pressure on the AC and fulfill the high traffic transmission requirements of 802.11n and 802.11ac network.

Seamless Roaming Experience

The RG-AM5528 teams up with the RG-WS wireless ACs, allowing wireless users to roam seamlessly on Layer 2 and Layer 3 networks without data interruption.

Abundant QoS Policies

The RG-AM5528 supports an extensive array of QoS policies. For example, it provides bandwidth limitations in WLAN/AP/STA modes that guarantee bandwidth priority for key applications.

The AP also supports the multicast-to-unicast conversion technology and resolves the video interruption problem due to packet loss or long delay in wireless Video on Demand (VoD) system. The RG-AM5528 highly enhances user experience with multicast video over wireless networks.

Wireless IPv6 Access

The RG-AM5528 fully supports the IPv6 features and implements IPv6 forwarding on a wireless network. Both IPv4 and IPv6 users can connect to the ACs over tunnels, enabling IPv6 applications to be borne on the wireless network.

Flexible and Comprehensive Security Policies

User Data Encryption

The RG-AM5528 fully supports the advanced encryption technologies such as Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP), Temporal Key Integrity Protocol (TKIP), and Advanced Encryption Standard (AES), ensuring end-to-end security of data transmission over the wireless network.

CAPWAP Protocol

Encrypted communication between the RG-AM5528 and RG-WS ACs is enabled with the international standard Control and Provisioning of Wireless Access Points (CAPWAP). The function ensures complete isolation from the wired network and guarantees high security for the real-time communication between the AP and the wireless controller.

RF Security

In collaboration with Ruijie RG-SNC network management system and RG-WS wireless controller series, the RG-AM5528 supports RF probe scanning feature to detect unauthorized access points or other RF interference sources. Once detected, the wireless controller will send real-time alerts to the network management system. Network administrator can hence monitor potential threats and usage status anytime with ease.

Flexible Authentication Modes

In addition to the traditional Web Authentication and 802.1X Authentication, the RG-AM5528 also supports PEAP Authentication, SMS Authentication, and QR Code Authentication.

The PEAP Authentication allows users to perform password authentication for once only. That means users are only required to enter credentials during their first network visit.

If the SMS authentication is adopted, users first sign in with their mobile phone numbers and then receive an SMS with login username and password for network access.

QR code authentication is another wireless security highlight. After accessing a wireless network, users will obtain a QR code on their end devices and simply ask any authorized staff’s to scan it for network access.

Advanced Guest Wireless Interfaces of the QR Code Authentication

Protection Against ARP Spoofing

Address Resolution Protocol (ARP) detection effectively protects network users against ARP gateway spoofing and host spoofing. Automatic binding can be enabled in both dynamic and static IP address allocation environments to greatly save manpower resources and management costs. The RG-AM5528 can monitor and control the transmission rate of ARP packets to prevent malicious use of scanning tools, which triggers ARP flooding and causes network congestion.     

DHCP Security

With Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) snooping, the RG-AM5528 permits DHCP response messages from the trusted ports only. The device can thus prevent unauthorized deployment of any DHCP server to disturb the allocation and management of IP addresses and affect normal operation of the network. With the DHCP monitoring function, the RG-AM5528 can effectively prevent ARP host spoofing and source IP address spoofing in the dynamic IP allocation environment by dynamically monitoring ARP and checking source IP address.

Management Information Security

To ensure the security of devices and offer protection against attacks, the Secure Shell (SSH) and SNMPv3 technologies encrypt management information by Telnet and Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP). The RG-AM5528 offers Telnet access control based on source IP address, offering a high level of granularity on device management. Only the IP addresses authorized by network administrator can log into the wireless controller, which further enhances the security of device network management.

Unified Network Management

Simple Deployment with Zero Configuration

Under the FIT mode, no configuration is required before deployment. Also, no manual configuration is necessary for on-site installation, maintenance or replacement. Auto-configuration can be completed via the wireless controller. This user-friendly feature can greatly reduce workload and investment costs.

Comprehensive Remote Management

RG-WS wireless controllers can remotely and centrally manage all RG-AM5528 APs (operation parameters such as channel, power ranking, SSID configuration, security configuration, VLAN division, and CPE data and configuration). The feature enhances security and simplifies management for network users.

●Web Interface Management

The RG-AM5528 supports AC and AP web management interfaces, which provide simplified wireless configuration and high visibility for the whole network operation. With the AC web interface, the wireless controller can manage both the APs and the associated users, achieving user bandwidth control and network access restriction. Network administrator can hence easily plan, operate and maintain the wireless network.
