Wireless Broadband Access
Smarter Models for Wireless Broadband Access
The vast majority of the world is still waiting for broadband service. In the well-populated parts of developed countries, existing wireline phone and cable TV infrastructure made broadband relatively easy to offer, and availability is now very high. Everywhere else, the high costs of current options, such as deploying new wireline infrastructure or large-scale macro-cellular wireless models like WiMAX, are big barriers to further broadband subscriber growth.
We believe we have solved this problem. Our field-proven Smart Wi-Fi approach to wireless broadband access opens vast new segments of customers to broadband operators. We dramatically reduce the capital costs of broadband infrastructure, which in combination with build-as-you grow business models can deliver attractively short breakeven timelines even in very low-ARPU markets.
The Ruckus Smart Wi-Fi Broadband Access System is one of the industry’s first and only to complete end-to-end solution for last-mile access based on 802.11n and adaptive beamforming. It includes customer premise equipment, meshed Wi-Fi access points, high-speed wireless backhaul, and comprehensive network-wide element and service management. The solution’s unrivaled performance in wireless broadband applications is driven by several factors:
- Outstanding wireless coverage, capacity, and interference rejection from an industry leading performance of Ruckus smart antenna technology
- Smart, hybrid meshing and simple point-to-point backhaul designs for straightforward deployment — with no PhD in radio-frequency physics required
- Smart QoS, for true carrier-class management of multi-play traffic and access control throughout the network
- Large-scale success in the crucial test of real-world deployments
