ruckus wireless inc (RKUS) Key Developments

FASTWEB Selects Ruckus Smart Wi-Fi Networks of Ruckus Wireless, Inc

Ruckus Wireless, Inc. announced that FASTWEB has selected and deployed one of the most advanced indoor/outdoor Ruckus Smart Wi-Fi networks in the world, providing high-capacity, high-speed public access and innovative Wi-Fi location services throughout the Fiera Milano, the third large exhibition center in the world, located in Milan, Italy. The Fiera Milano hosts more than 50 professional exhibitions each year, serving approximately 23,000 exhibitors and five million visitors annually. The massive Ruckus Smart Wi-Fi network, owned and operated by FASTWEB, is comprised of 500 Ruckus ZoneFlex™ indoor and outdoor access points (APs), covering more than 400,000 square meters of space and including 20 pavilions. FASTWEB centrally manages the Fiera Milano Ruckus Smart Wi-Fi infrastructure through Ruckus ZoneDirector™ 5,000 controllers within its data center. Beyond providing free public Wi-Fi access and paid Internet connectivity to exhibitors, FASTWEB has also deployed the Ruckus SPoT™ location-based service (LBS) as a means to monetize their infrastructure, allowing exhibitors and organizers to gather more business intelligence about user behavior in order to help optimize them obtaining additional potential revenue. According to FASTWEB, Ruckus Smart Wi-Fi was selected for the project due to its unique carrier-grade technology designed to deliver greater coverage, consistent performance, stronger signal strength, and the ability to adapt to constantly changing environmental conditions that negatively impact radio frequency (RF) transmissions by causing spotty coverage, dropped connections and erratic Wi-Fi performance. FASTWEB and the Fiera Milano have established a model that provides for the companies to offer location-based analytics to Fiera customers using the Ruckus SPoT location-based service (LBS). Purchased as a cloud-based service or a virtualized software instance that operates on standard enterprise-class servers, Ruckus SPoT location-based service combines unique advantages, including options for both public and private cloud-based services, and a choice of location metrics with either SPoT Point (drop-pin) or SPoT Presence (proximity). Enterprises and managed service providers (MSPs) can also use SPoT APIs to incorporate location data into their own applications. A robust ecosystem of partners provides additional leverage of SPoT for applications in retail, transportation, entertainment and other vertical markets.

ScanSource to Distribute Ruckus Wireless Smart Wi-Fi

Ruckus Wireless has signed a pan-European value-added distribution agreement for its Smart Wi-Fi products and technology with ScanSource PoS and Barcode. ScanSource provides resellers with access to Ruckus ZoneFlex indoor and outdoor access points, and ZoneDirector controllers, software and services. ScanSource also provides education and training, pre-sale support, technical support, and marketing assistance, among other services, to support resellers in offering these Ruckus Smart Wi-Fi solutions to their end-user customers. The expansion of the Ruckus relationship in Europe builds on the already-successful alliance between ScanSource and Ruckus in North America.

Ruckus Wireless, Inc. Launches ZoneFlex H500 802.11ac Wall Switch

Ruckus Wireless, Inc. announced the launch of the new Ruckus ZoneFlex H500 2x2:2 dual-band (2.4 and 5 GHz) 802.11ac indoor wall switch access point (AP), wired and wireless wall switch that uses Ruckus patented BeamFlex+ adaptive antenna technology to deliver high-speed 802.11ac Wi-Fi in an ultra-sleek, low-profile design that can be quickly and discretely installed in a standard wall junction box. Ideal for offering converged services in hotel guest rooms, student residences, and multiple dwelling units (MDUs), the ZoneFlex H500 provides an easy way to offer multiple connections into a single room without multiple cables. Equipped with four Ethernet ports for in-room access, the Ruckus ZoneFlex H500 can be used to connect a range of wired network devices such as IPTV set top boxes, VoIP telephones, or networked minibars. An IEEE 802.3af-compliant Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) port on the ZoneFlex H500 allows devices such as IP telephones to be powered directly from the wall switch, and the ZoneFlex H500 itself may be powered via PoE or DC power adapter. The ZoneFlex H500 requires just a single POE cable drop, reducing cabling, switch ports and power sourcing equipment, and it easily mounts to worldwide standard electrical outlet boxes (single-gang wall-plate width, 3.5 x 6.3 x 1.2 inches). PCH has already installed Ruckus ZoneFlex T300 Series outdoor 802.11ac access points to provide coverage in and around the Grand Hotel pool area, and ZoneFlex R700 3x3:3 802.11ac indoor access points for coverage in other public areas inside the Hotel, including the lobby, etc. Available this month throughout North America and most parts of Europe (ETSI), and in second quarter of 2015 in China, APAC, and other parts of the world, the new Ruckus ZoneFlex H500 Wi-Fi 802.11ac indoor wall switch has an MSRP of USD 365 and is available through authorized Ruckus Big Dog resellers worldwide. The Ruckus ZoneFlex H500 features a very sleek and lightweight yet secure design, which helps ensure a low profile, and offers front port access, which eliminates unsightly cabling and disruptive furniture placement inside hotel rooms. With dimensions of 171mm (h) x 90mm (w) x 29mm (d) and weighing less than half a pound (210g), it is very inconspicuous, minimizing the protrusion off walls to make in-room cabling and furniture arrangement simple. Cable channels on the back of the H500 allow legacy cabling, (e.g., for PBX telephones), to exit the wall junction box with the access point mounted. The ZoneFlex H500 can be deployed as a standalone device or centrally managed by Ruckus ZoneDirector controllers, the Ruckus SmartCell Gateway (SCG) 200 and virtual SmartCell Gateway (vSCG). Patented Ruckus BeamFlex+ technology is designed to enable the ZoneFlex H500 to transmit Wi-Fi signals in the best direction for each client device, which means more client device locations throughout a hotel guestroom receive the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) required to achieve the possible 802.11ac throughput rates. By using dual polarized antennas to adapt to mobile client device orientation, the ZoneFlex H500 increases signal strength reception by up to 3x. BeamFlex+ "hears" clients on both horizontal and vertical antenna polarizations, and compensates for device orientation–something ideal for mobile devices, and affords hotels the flexibility to mount the ZoneFlex H500 in any orientation without negatively impacting performance. The Ruckus ZoneFlex H500 also supports SmartMesh Networking, for additional deployment flexibility.
