Who is Ruckus Wireless?

Ruckus Wireless is a pioneer in the wireless infrastructure market, enabling carriers and enterprises to keep up with the exploding demand for high-bandwidth applications and services. Ruckus' proprietary "Smart Wi-Fi" technology redefines what's possible in wireless network performance with flexibility, reliability, and affordability.

What does Ruckus do?

Ruckus Wireless delivers innovative solutions to the most critical issues facing today's wireless networks: how to create affordable reliability and how to manage exponential growth. Ruckus hardware, software, and services help enterprises and carriers increase the range and reliability of their Wi-Fi networks, reduce the cost of deployment, and ensure consistent performance even in the most challenging environments.

What problem does Ruckus solve?

Wireless users have come to expect Wi-Fi performance to be inconsistent and unreliable. This is because interference and other obstacles cause dropped packets that degrade performance. Furthermore, the reliability problem is getting worse with increasingly sophisticated devices and greater demand for video and high-bandwidth applications.

Wireless carriers face the additional challenge of exponential growth. Worldwide, there are over 5 billion mobile subscriptions with nearly 1 billion mobile broadband subscribers. During the next 5 years, global mobile data traffic will grow by 18 times. Carriers are already stretched to handle these volumes of traffic and the problem is getting worse.

What is unique about Ruckus technology?

Ruckus takes a different approach than other Wi-Fi technologies. Where others try brute force, Ruckus uses intelligence to steer around any interference and slip past the obstacles. Our "Smart Wi-Fi" technology combines hardware, software, and services to deliver faster wireless connections. Our adaptive antenna arrays and best path selection algorithms direct signals only where they are needed. Our technology is also noteworthy for its simplicity of installation, maintenance, and operation.

What gives Ruckus its advantage?

The Ruckus advantage is the ability to deliver Pervasive Performance™. No other company can deliver a wireless solution as simple, reliable, and affordable. Our technology is so revolutionary, we've been awarded 55 patents with another 80 pending
