Ruckus Wireless Delivers Smart Wi-Fi Technology to Enhance Learning at Evangel University

Ruckus Wireless, Inc. announced it has supplied next-generation Smart Wi-Fi technology and products for Evangel University. Ruckus' 802.11ac Wave 2 Wi-Fi solution provides students and faculty with a scalable, innovative high-density infrastructure that has transformed education both inside and outside the classroom. Evangel University in Springfield, Missouri serves more than 2,200 students and 400 faculty and staff and is spread over 100 acres. There are 1,100 students living on campus in seven dorms. Due to a high student and faculty complaint volume regarding the insufficient legacy Wi-Fi, Evangel recognized the need for a robust, scalable, reliable Wi-Fi infrastructure in classrooms, across campus and in dorms to enable students to connect with one another and faculty, conduct research and participate in online learning.To provide state-of-the-art, adaptive infrastructure, Evangel University decided to leave the final purchasing decision to an on-campus competition between Ruckus and another supplier. The university conducted an on-site demo to reflect real-world experience, using two identical dorms as a testing ground. Ruckus Wireless and another equipment provider each deployed their Wi-Fi in one of the dorms for 6 to 8weeks. Student feedback and network performance data was collected and analyzed, with Ruckus emerging as the winner. To ensure a reliable network that meets their high density needs, Evangel installed 335 of Ruckus' ZoneFlex R710 access points throughout the campus, delivering a major increase in Wi-Fi performance and range. The R710 delivers up to 5dB of signal gain and is backwards compatible with existing Wi-Fi clients. With a 4x4:4 802.11ac functionality and MU-MIMO that addresses the need of high density, this Wave 2 deployment helped drive down complaints and increase student and faculty satisfaction. To further enhance services, Evangel University also uses: Ruckus Zone Director 3,000 controllers to enable a network management system that was easy to deploy and manage. Ruckus Dynamic PSK technology to build out a seamless onboarding solution. Ruckus SmartCell Insight data analytics platform to enable real-time network statistics and Big Data analytics.

Ruckus Wireless Inc. Introduces Entry-Level, Enterprise-Class 802.11ac Access Point

Ruckus Wireless, Inc. announced a new, entry-level 802.11ac access point along with the expansion and enhancement of its family of Ruckus Unleashed™ access points. The new products and capabilities make it even easier for small businesses to deploy high-performance Wi-Fi that meets their cost, ease-of-deployment and coverage needs. Three new products expand the range of high-performance Wi-Fi options available to small businesses: Ruckus ZoneFlex™ R310 is an entry-level, enterprise-class 802.11ac access point that features a wide range of Ruckus performance-enhancing features. The Ruckus R310 has a sleek, low-profile form factor and delivers superior dual-band performance for organizations that rely on Wi-Fi to run their business, Ruckus ZoneFlex R310 Unleashed is a controller-less version of the R310. Unleashed eliminates the need forseparate controllers and access point licenses, significantly reducing upfront costs. A simple web interface featuring a step-by-step set-up guide enables non-IT users to configure Wi-Fi in just 60 seconds and deploy in minutes, and Ruckus ZoneFlex T300 Series Unleashed are controller-less versions of Ruckus' existing T300 access points, which provide dual-band 802.11ac access for outdoor deployments. The T300 series features a lightweight, low-profile design for easy installation, and will now allow small businesses to add outdoor connectivity to a controller-less Wi-Fi environment. In conjunction with the new access points, Ruckus Unleashed has added new features to simplify management of controller-less Wi-Fi networks. Specifically, company is introducing its patented SmartMesh™ technology to Unleashed. With SmartMesh, small businesses no longer have to run Ethernet wiring to all indoor and outdoor access points, saving both money and time. Ruckus Unleashed also now supports SNMP protocols to easily manage and monitor network elements.
