Ruckus Wireless Redefines Enterprise Wireless LAN

Ruckus Wireless has expanded its ZoneFlex Enterprise Smart Wireless LAN (WLAN) offerings with a series of new products that the company says redefine the economics of delivering reliable, high-performance wireless connectivity to thousands of concurrent users across large enterprise environments. This opens up new markets to partners, enabling them to provide competitively priced solutions to meet the demands of today’s budget-conscious enterprises.

Extending its Smart Wi-Fi technology to 802.11n, Ruckus ZoneFlex Enterprise is a family of high performance Smart WLAN solutions that deliver superior and consistent performance for both legacy Wi-Fi and 802.11n client devices with wire-like reliability. Importantly, Ruckus’ dynamic beamforming antenna and Automatic Interference Mitigation (AIM) technologies combine to mask the complexity of 802.11n, dramatically simplifying deployment while amplifying its performance and coverage benefits – all, say Ruckus, at a fraction of the cost of competitive high-end WLAN systems.

“It’s important for our partners to be able to keep pace with business requirements as budgets shrink,” said Jim Calderbank, director of enterprise sales EMEA at Ruckus Wireless. “By enabling them to do this and by expanding our product range to meet the needs of different markets, our distributors and resellers will be in a stronger position to do well in the current financial climate. For large enterprises, with thousands of users and applications running over the wireless network, a reliable WLAN is a must, but current solutions are increasingly being rejected as too expensive. This is bad news for resellers and their margins – our ZoneFlex Enterprise offering is the perfect alternative.”

“Since partnering with Ruckus, we’ve had tremendous success with the products and customer feedback has been extremely positive,” said Mark Power, wireless security specialist at Net-Ctrl. “We’re very excited about the new prospects the ZoneFlex Enterprise offerings will bring, and if we see the same success with this range, we’ll soon be making significant inroads with new markets and reaping the financial benefits. Larger enterprises are no longer in a position to splash the cash, nor can they compromise on performance – Ruckus’s new range has come along at just the right time.”
