Acquired by Arris in 2017, Ruckus Wireless manufactures Access Points and Controllers designed for deployments with high levels of connecting client devices. A popular choice for stadium and convention centre-like deployments, Ruckus was the first to introduce adaptive antenna technology as well as 802.11n and 802.11ac products into the industry.
Ruckus’ newer Access Points offer an Unleashed variant, allowing for a controller-less WLAN solution. Aimed at smaller businesses where an on-site controller is less manageable or affordable, Unleashed enables straightforward deployment even for those with limited networking knowledge.
In 2016, Ruckus also introduced Ruckus WiFi, a WLAN Management-as-a-Service that enables schools and small and medium businesses with limited IT resources to easily set-up, monitor, and manage a high-performance network. Simple to use, it allows for a network to be set-up and configured before the Access Points are installed, creating a hassle-free install and go deployment.
