Let’s make a Ruckus about wireless technology

Ruckus is one of the biggest names in wireless technology, when it comes to open spectrum communication you have to have something reliable and with Ruckus it is almost magical.

Ruckus invented and has patented wireless voice, video, and data technology, such as adaptive antenna arrays that extend signal range, increase client data rates, and avoid interference, providing distribution of delay-sensitive multimedia content and services over standard 802.11

What technologies puts Ruckus ahead of the game?

Ruckus wireless solutions has pioneered a few technologies that separates them from the rest of the players in the WiFi industry. Some of these technologies are:

Ruckus Beam Flex

  • BeamFlex antenna directs Wi-Fi signals to clients
  • Automatically adapts to moves, adds and changes
  • Automatically rejects Interference
  • Steers signals around impenetrable obstacles
  • Director automatically controls AP transmit power and channel assignment.
  • Energy wasted radiating everywhere
  • Reduces coverage radius
  • Causes neighbor AP interference
  • Need constant AP power adjustments
  • Overhead on WLAN controller
  • Never perfect in dynamic environments

  • Energy wasted radiating everywhere

  • Overhead on WLAN controller
  • Never perfect in dynamic environments

  • Priorities & per-user rate limits settable per SSID
  • Precision bandwidth management and shaping
  • Eliminates “slow” clients from slowing down others
  • Fair airtime among clients of different speeds
  • Enables 11n Traffic Aggregation and Block ACK techniques to maximize throughput
  • SmartMesh-wide QoS policy enforcement
  • Per-multicast-client antenna & rate adaptation
  • The only proven production systems for IPTV
  • Maximized data rates
  • Minimized retransmissions
Ruckus Smart Cast

How does SmartCast work?


Ruckus Smart Mesh
  • Eliminates Ethernet cable to every AP
  • Uses RF signal routing to determine best paths to client and between mesh nodes
  • Only mesh system that avoids interference
  • Uses high-gain, long-range smart antennas to inimize hops, improve performance
  • Deploys in half the time, half the costof conventional WLANs
  • Simple, simple, simple to configure and manage

SmartMesh vs. Dumb Bridged Mesh


  • A collection of robust wireless security capabilities made easier to implement
  • Authentication and authorization
  • Dynamic PSK™
  • Role-based user access
  • Wireless LAN client isolation
  • Wireless intrusion detection
  • Link layer encryption
Ruckus Smart Sec
