Ruckus brings cloud Wi-Fi solution to APAC

08 Mar 2019

Ruckus Networks has launched its cloud-managed enterprise Wi-Fi solution in the Asia Pacific region.

Ruckus Cloud Wi-Fi allows network administrators to manage multiple locations through a single web- or mobile app-based dashboard. 

The solution is designed to help 'lean IT' staff at schools, retail, professional services, warehouses, and hotels easily deploy and manage a multi-site network while delivering exceptional connectivity for students, guests, and customers. 

Ruckus Cloud Wi-Fi also helps organisations lower their total cost of ownership (TCO) compared to other solutions by combining cloud efficiency with high-performance access points (APs) that serve more users over a wider area.

The Ruckus Cloud Wi-Fi solution offers short videos to learn about its new features, and a network to auto-update and remain secure, informing them through text messages and push notifications via a mobile app of any outages.

"As organisations in the Asia Pacific region undergo digital transformation, reliable and high-performance Wi-Fi are a must to accelerate growth and improve operational efficiencies," says Ruckus Networks ASEAN regional sales director Kho Teck Meng.

"By using the same enterprise-grade technology present in all of our installations, customers now have access to a combination of simplicity and performance that wasn't previously available. We look forward to helping our partners across the region drive greater value for their customers with a solution that is easy to deploy and manage."

Designed for both simplicity and ease of scaling, Ruckus Cloud Wi-Fi allows businesses of all sizes to deploy and remotely manage Wi-Fi networks across multiple sites. 

With a single interface to create new Wi-Fi networks, add access points, and monitor network performance and activity, the solution allows administrators to manage from anywhere using an intuitive, web-based interface or the Ruckus Cloud mobile app.

"Ruckus Cloud Wi-Fi is the first foundational service, of many SaaS offerings, we will deliver soon," says Ruckus cloud platform business leader and senior director Phal Nanda. 

"Built on the latest micro-services-based architecture, Ruckus Cloud is highly scalable, secure and API-driven to enable innovative applications to be delivered to Ruckus technology partners. This will bring more value to our customers and partners and differentiate the solution in the market."
