Smart Wireless Experience

Intelligent Identification of Smart Devices

The RG-WS6024 Wireless Controller, with a built-in portal server, intelligently identifies the types of end devices based on their respective features. This feature presents users with an adaptive portal authentication page that fits the screen of any smart device of their choice. It effectively eliminates the trouble of screen size adjustment and offers a significantly better wireless user experience. Fully supports mainstream operating systems including Apple iOS, Android, and Windows.

Fair Scheduling

The RG-WS6024 in collaboration with Ruijie APs enables equal access time for smart devices running different standards such as 802.11g, 802.11n, 802.11ac, etc. The feature solves the problems like high latency, poor AP performance and slow network speed caused by the use of old wireless LAN card or because the end device is far away from the AP. The RG-WS6024 ensures a fair high-speed wireless network for all users with any devices anywhere and anytime.

Fair Scheduling Mechanism

Abundant QoS Policies

The RG-WS6024 supports an extensive array of QoS policies. For example, the wireless controller can set bandwidth limits to give higher priority to critical data transmission applications, delivering guaranteed bandwidth performance for network of all sizes.

Smart RF Management

The RG-WS6024 enables AP to perform on-demand RF scanning for a wireless network. By scanning the wireless bands and channels, the device singles out both rogue APs and networks. Network administrator will also receive alerts for immediate action, enabling round-the-clock network protection. In addition, the RG-WS6024 can control the RF scanning function in real time to measure signal and interference intensities. Working with the software, the wireless controller can dynamically adjust traffic load, power, RF coverage, and channel allocation for maximized signal coverage and capacity.

Seamless Roaming Experience

The advanced clustering technology enables real-time synchronization of all user data among multiple RG-WS6024 devices. In other words, user information and authentication data are shared in the cluster, enabling wireless users to roam freely within the whole network. Users can thereby enjoy a borderless and secure roaming experience while the IP address and authentication status remained unchanged. The RG-WS6024 also supports fast roaming and voice services with the clustering technology.

Intelligent Load Balancing

In a populated wireless LAN environment, the RG-WS6024 Wireless Controller, teaming up with Ruijie APs, can intelligently distribute users among different APs according to the number of users and data traffic in real time. This feature balances the load pressure on each AP and improves the average bandwidth and Quality of Service (QoS), enhancing network availability. In addition to the role-based and traffic-based balancing features, the RG-WS6024 also enables load balancing in terms of frequency range. Despite of the fact that the frequency band 5GHz (802.11a/n/ac) can offer a better throughput performance, the majority of Wi-Fi devices adopts 2.4GHz by default. With the frequency-based load balancing, the RG-WS6024 allows users with dual-band devices to connect to the 5GHz with priority. The bandwidth usage is greatly increased by 30-40% with no additional cost required. The RG-WS6024 delivers an exceptional high-speed wireless performance to all Ruijie clients.

Intelligent Load Balancing Mechanism

Energy Efficiency

Green Design

The RG-WS6024 adopts next-gen hardware architecture with a highly energy-saving circuit design and component selection. The device achieves a marked reduction in energy consumption by more than 40%. In addition to maximized energy saving, the RG-WS6024 also significantly lowers noise pollution. All models in the series deploy variable-speed axial fans, which support intelligent speed adjustment based on the current ambient temperature. All the features enable the wireless controller to work smoothly and reduce power consumption and noise pollution at the same time. 

PoE Power Supply

The RG-WS6024 offers three PoE power supply modes - auto, energy-saving and static - to meet various deployment challenges.

The RG-WS6024 also supports auto-power-down mode. When an interface is down for a certain period of time, the system will automatically power it down for extra energy efficiency. EEE energy-saving mode is another feature highlight. The system will automatically turn an idle port into energy-saving mode. When there is a new packet, the system will issue listening streams to the port to resume service.

On-demand Energy-saving Settings

The RG-WS6024 can regularly power off any designated RF transmission interfaces of all managed APs according to the actual needs. The function can also switch off the whole AP as scheduled. In small and medium business scenarios, network administrator can set the wireless controller to automatically disable and turn RF transmission interfaces into energy-saving mode. This feature is especially useful during time slots such as midnight, weekends and public holidays when no wireless service is required. The wireless controller greatly lowers energy consumption and hence provides maximized cost savings for users.

Flexible and Comprehensive Security Policies

Local Authentication

The RG-WS6024 owns a local user database, which supports integration with the built-in portal server, for easy local authentication of wireless users via web authentication. The wireless controller allows local authentication based on the actual user demand, saving costs by getting rid of devices such as external portal and RADIUS server. The network infrastructure is hence largely simplified. The RG-WS6024 fully satisfies the secure access requirements of small and medium-sized networks.

User Data Encryption

The RG-WS6024 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.

Virtual Wireless Packet Technology

With the virtual AP technology, the RG-WS6024 can partition multiple SSIDs within the network. Network administrator can separately encrypt and isolate subnets or VLANs that have the same SSID. The deployment thereby enables specified authentication mode and encryption mechanism for each SSID.

RF Security

The RG-WS6024 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.

Protection Against Viruses and Attacks

The RG-WS6024 provides a wide range of built-in security mechanisms to effectively prevent and control virus spread and network traffic attacks. The mechanisms ensure secure network access by the authorized users only. Such protection mechanisms include IP/MAC/WLAN binding, hardware ACL control, traffic-based bandwidth limitation and so on. The RG-WS6024 is an ideal match for campus, hospital, enterprise networks and settings alike with high security demand for guest access.

Secure User Access

The RG-WS6024 supports Web Authentication, allowing users to use any web browser for authentication.

802.1X authentication is another security highlight. A major difference from web authentication is that 802.1X enables IP/MAC/WLAN binding after authentication. The feature totally guarantees the legitimacy of the user’s identity.

Flexible Authentication Modes

In addition to the traditional Web Authentication and 802.1X Authentication, the RG-WS6024 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-WS6024 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.

Rogue AP Countermeasure

The RG-WS6024 enables effective rogue AP detection and containment to enhance wireless security. The device arranges an active AP to perform rogue detection, send probe packets and hear probe responses from valid APs. Network administrator can hence easily single out rogue APs from the batch for top-class security.

Rogue AP and User Countermeasures

DHCP Security

With Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) snooping, the RG-WS6024 permits DHCP response messages from the trusted ports only. The wireless controller 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-WS6024 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-WS6024 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

Multiple Management Protocols and Unified Management Platform

The RG-WS6024 supports a vast number of management modes (e.g. Command Line). It offers centralized and efficient planning, deployment, monitoring, and management of all APs with minimized investment costs. Working with the Ruijie Smart Network Commander (SNC) which is an all-rounded network management platform, the RG-WS6024 delivers enriched network management services such as topology generation, AP operation status, online user status, entire network RF planning, user location, security alert, link load, device utilization rate, roaming record and report output. These functions enable network administrator to monitor and manage the operation status of the entire network in the data center.

●Web Interface Management

The RG-WS6024 supports AC web management interface, which provides simplified wireless configuration and high visibility for the whole network operation. With the AC web interface, the wireless controller can also manage the APs and also the associated users, achieving user bandwidth control and network access restriction. Network administrator can hence plan, operate and maintain the wireless network with ease.
