Lower WLAN Total Cost of Ownership (TCO)
You can count on Wi-Fi demands increasing. But can you count on budgets increasing, too? Here's one way to keep growth and budgets aligned: reduce the TCO of your WLAN infrastructure. Our APs offer better capacity and coverage, often able to support 30-50% more clients than competitive solutions. Think of all the APs you won't need to buy, plus the associated expenses you'll save. A more cost-efficient infrastructure is definitely the way to grow.

Wi-Fi technology is changing at a dizzying rate. Your own wireless environment is probably changing constantly, too. You may decide to shift your WLAN management approach. With Ruckus Cloud Wi-Fi, your Wi-Fi network investments are protected.
