Great Outdoor Wi-Fi is your Start to a Great Connected Community
Around the world, cities are evaluating how to leverage smart technology to enhance citizens lifestyle, increase economic growth and make the city more efficient. The possibilities are limitless with advanced technology in smart lighting, traffic and parking systems, public safety and much more.
A great starting point for cities is to deploy public Wi-Fi. Public Wi-Fi is a great way to create a more vibrant community and also connect citizens, businesses and visitors. But the benefits of Wi-Fi don’t stop there. Once the Wi-Fi network infrastructure is in place, it can be used to enable other smart city applications such as public safety / IP Video, traffic & parking controls, air quality and many others.
Ruckus powers the world's largest outdoor Wi-Fi deployments. We've built a comprehensive ecosystem of partners to provide the solutions cities want to deploy. In the United States, we’ve also created a specialist partner program designed to help with the deployments of smart city solutions. Ruckus smart city specialists have experience doing site surveys, putting forth city applications, getting appropriate permits and other key activities necessary to the efficient implementation of smart city solutions. Their expertise streamlines the implementation process resulting in faster time to market and lower deployment costs.

Wi-Fi: A Cornerstone of the Smart City
As cities get smarter, they recognize one fact of life right away: any old Wi-Fi technology isn’t going to cut it. Smart City applications demand a wireless network that can deal with tough issues like complex meshing in outdoor environments. One that can communicate with thousands of different devices—smart and dumb alike—simultaneously. One that delivers superior performance for every user, even in high-traffic areas like convention centers, airports and busy downtown shopping districts.
Ruckus has been there, done that, around the world. Our Wi-Fi breakthroughs in adaptive antenna technology, smart mesh networking and other areas ensure that every connected device and user has a reliable, high-performance connection. Our solutions are designed from the ground up to deliver secure, super-fast Wi-Fi even in the highest-density indoor and outdoor environments.
Connect Public Services More Intelligently
All those warm fuzzies from your slick public Wi-Fi service will turn to cold stares if accessing Wi-Fi is a chore, or if it buries your IT team in extra work and trouble tickets. Ruckus can make onboarding millions of connected devices simple, seamless and secure.
We can help you take advantage of HotSpot 2.0 technology to partner with other operators and municipalities, and let users connect to your Wi-Fi from anywhere automatically, without having to constantly re-enter credentials. Our certificate-based onboarding lets hundreds of thousands of users connect securely from practically any device, in seconds, through a self-service portal. And no matter how large your Smart City deployment grows, you can control everything easily and centrally from the cloud.
