Smart Wi-Fi

Ruckus also recently launched its new advanced Smart Wi-Fi products, technologies, professional services and training packages that address the growing challenges faced by service providers to support thousands of simultaneous Wi-Fi users within high-capacity venues and locations.

As more Wi-Fi-capable devices enter the market, the average number of clients in any given area of a network increases dramatically.

In the case of extremely dense venues - such as stadiums, arenas, airports or exhibition halls - these very dense populations introduce significant stress on the network and require specific design considerations such as the density and placement of Wi-Fi access points, the number of clients needing to connect, radio frequency (RF) noise and dealing with increased interference.
