AP Support for Bluetooth Low Energy Devices

Some Ruckus Wireless APs, such as the H510 and T610, support customer-supplied, low-power (1W or less), Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) devices, such as BLE beacons.

The BLE devices plug into a USB port on the AP, and the AP can be configured to turn power to the USB port either on or off.

The Ruckus APs with USB ports supporting BLE devices can provide power to the BLE device. The BLE devices perform whatever tasks they are designed to do without interference from or control (other than supplying USB power) by the Ruckus network equipment.
