Modernize and Scale the Network with Secure Wi-Fi and Switching

The primary mission of military and civilian federal agencies—protecting and serving citizens—has never been more critical. But budget and manpower realities, not to mention evolving security threats, are making it harder to succeed at these missions. Your agency needs to modernize its IT infrastructure continuously, do it at scale, and manage it with the people and budget you have. ‘Doing more with less’ is not just a clever catchphrase.

With a twenty-year history of Federal IT network modernization, Ruckus knows how to help federal agencies update their access infrastructure in a scalable and secure fashion. From software-upgradeable switches to Wi-Fi that works in the toughest environments, to secure access for every device and user, Ruckus makes life easier for IT—with a total cost of ownership that gets IT modernization done faster.

Build and manage city-scale networks

Federal networks operate at a scale shared by few organizations. Such scale brings challenges: multiple sites with multiple management interfaces, inflexible architectures, efficient network problem isolation, and adequate service-level delivery across diverse indoor and outdoor environments. Ruckus provides the tools to build and manage large-scale networks:

Secure access, no matter the device or the environment

Federal workforces want the mobility and convenience of “Bring Your Own Device” (BYOD). But risks associated with identity and unauthorized access are all too real. Even with agency-supplied devices, an IT helpdesk overrun with password-related trouble tickets is also a too-frequent reality.

The result: security, employee productivity and IT productivity are lower than they should be. Ruckus helps by providing the means for secure user and device access in a way that’s more secure than passwords, doesn’t burden IT and minimizes end-user frustration—for hundreds of thousands of users.

The Ruckus Cloudpath Enrollment System offers:

  • Certificate-based, secure connectivity with WPA2-Enterprise—the gold standard in encryption—to eliminate password hassles for BYOD users
  • Self-service onboarding that dramatically reduces the burden on IT when it comes to bringing new users and devices—including BYOD and guest users—onto the network
  • Policy management for granular role-based access control—users only get access to appropriate network resources
  • Maximum flexibility with cloud or on-premises deployment, support for any wired/wireless network infrastructure, and customizable workflows
  • Visibility and control over what devices are on the network, with each device associated with a user

Squeeze more out of your network, cut your TCO

As a federal IT leader, a gold-plated network is not what you’re after. You need to modernize as much of your network as you can with this year’s budget while making sure you maximize the lifespan of the equipment you buy. A Ruckus network lets you:

  • Minimize over-provisioning through use of fixed, stackable, software-upgradeable switches that yield chassis benefits without chassis cost and forklift replacement cycles
  • Minimize sparing requirements. Every switch and every access point can be used in every Ruckus control, management and distribution architecture.
  • Reduce WLAN infrastructure cost by deploying fewer, more capable access points that serve more users better
  • Reduce backhaul costs by distributing the WLAN data plane across sites
  • Reduce WLAN CAPEX by going all-virtual

安全裝置裝載與 Cloudpath

安全性與裝載

說明:

現在不再是 2005 年了,裝載無線裝置應擁有高度安全性,並能夠輕鬆操作。Ruckus Cloudpath 軟體讓企業、政府機關及教育機構都能夠輕鬆進行安全裝載作業。

這項技術為何值得您注意:

公用 WiFi 熱點是提升顧客和訪客滿意度的絕佳捷徑。WiFi 熱點可延長來訪賓客的停留時間、創造直接或間接收益,或是單純提供更理想的場所或校園體驗。但多數情況下,公用熱點並未提供任何安全防護,更別說是加密功能。越來越多使用者瞭解,未受保護的熱點可能帶來安全性風險,因此,他們會猶豫是否要使用網路。即便他們選擇使用網路,他們的網路活動也可能會受到各種限制,而正因為網路的價值無法發揮,也就抑制了您部署公用網路的動力。

透過 Cloudpath 軟體的安全裝載服務,賓客就能夠安全輕鬆地連線至公用熱點。賓客只須裝載一次,即可順暢地使用任何由相同漫遊服務聯盟設定的熱點。當賓客連上無線區域網路後,系統會將他們導向至品牌網路入口網站,讓賓客就能在其中選擇安全或開放式網路存取。透過專利的自動化裝置實踐 (ADE) 功能,該裝置即可在數秒內得到保護。綜合這些功能,我們提供了更卓越的連線品質及優異的使用體驗。

BeamFlex 調適性天線技術

效能最佳化

說明:

這些外型輕巧的智慧調適性天線系統內建多項元件,可透過電力控制天線屬性,進而針對與其通訊之各種傳輸裝置建立最佳的天線陣列。

這項技術為何值得您注意:

傳統的無線基地台天線為「全指向式」(訊號朝各方向發射) 或「指向式」(只朝一個方向發射)。相較之下,Ruckus BeamFlex 調適性天線技術具有較大的調適性。BeamFlex 技術可使 Ruckus AP 內的天線系統持續偵測環境,並進行最佳化。 這套天線系統可消除射頻干擾、雜訊與網路效能問題,並改善應用程式的流量。效果:

  • 提升效能與範圍
  • 影音通訊清楚順暢
  • 能源效率最大化

BeamFlex+ 為 Ruckus BeamFlex 調適性天線技術的強化版,可針對行動裝置提供適應支援。除了針對用戶端裝置的位置調整天線以外,這項新技術更可針對用戶端裝置的傳輸方向加以調整。
