Ruckus Wireless, Inc. is teaming with Sprint’s Custom Network Solutions (CNS) group to deliver enterprise, public sector and federal customers nationwide its Smart Wi-Fi products and services.
Sprint CNS is expanding its suite of in-building mobile solutions with the full complement of Ruckus indoor and outdoor Smart Wi-Fi products. CNS will integrate all the hardware, software, network transport and professional integration services needed to improve in-building coverage and capacity for small, medium and large business customers.
Working together to initially tailor solutions to five key vertical markets – hospitality, education, healthcare, retail and warehousing – the two companies have already begun providing managed Wi-Fi services to organizations such as the Tri-Rivers Career Center (Marion, OH) and the Dolton School District (Dolton, ILL).
Mike Wellin, Technology Director-Tri-Rivers Career Center, has been heavily involved in the installation and launch of the technology that began three months ago.
“We plan to expand the Ruckus footprint in our facility,” said Wellin. “The performance of the equipment is fantastic, and Sprint is a great ally. Its skills were key to the project’s success – that’s what separated Sprint from its competitors. The Sprint installation team is professional and efficient and this collaboration is exactly what Tri-Rivers will need as we continue to expand.”
The solution is designed for greater user productivity in-building through more reliable wireless connectivity, stronger signals and extended Wi-Fi coverage. It is intended for users with challenging environments that experience erratic interference, high client densities and constant user mobility.
Developed for high-capacity, carrier-grade deployments, Ruckus Smart Wi-Fi access points integrate patented technology to focus, steer and extend Wi-Fi signals only where service is needed. This enables greater numbers of concurrent users and increases the reliability and range of Wi-Fi communications by allowing the system to constantly adapt to environmental changes.
Sprint CNS designs, deploys and maintains wireless networks and mobility solutions to deliver the productivity and efficiency of voice and data communications to virtually anywhere a business and its employees need them. The company offers 24/7 technical support and manages all stages of the customer-deployment process, from the initial requirements assessment through installation and deployment with consultant-grade methods, procedures and tools.
