Ruckus Wireless unveils managed wireless broadband access solution.Worldwide Computer Products News-16 November 2009-Ruckus Wireless unveils managed wireless broadband High-speed wireless transmission of data. What is "high" speed is always a changing number. Wireless systems are typically slower than land-based, wireline networks. In the past, wireless broadband started at 250 Kbps, whereas land-based broadband was generally considered to start at T1 access solution(C)1995-2009 M2 COMMUNICATIONS http://www.m2.com
Carrier Wi-Fi applications provider Ruckus Wireless Inc announced on Monday the introduction of an end-to-end managed, wireless broadband access (WBA) solution that gives service providers a cost-effective model for offering broadband data services in developing urban environments.
Ruckus said its WBA solution includes outdoor mesh APs, customer premises equipment (CPE (Customer Premises Equipment) Communications equipment that resides on the customer's premises.
CPE - Customer Premises Equipment ), a new line of smart Wi-Fi backhaul systems and system-wide remote management.
The company has combined high-speed 802.11n technology with its intelligent antenna designs and dynamic beamforming software to overcome interference problems, delivering more extensive, stable coverage than conventional outdoor Wi-Fi systems.
In addition, the Ruckus dynamic antenna system enables more efficient spatial reuse in wireless mesh See wireless mesh network. networks. By varying the direction of each packet transmission, adjacent mesh APs often can transmit simultaneously on the same channel, increasing network capacity.
Ruckus Smart Mesh networking routes traffic over wired and wirelessly meshed APs, using the highest performing path in real time. It allows APs to be aggregated over gigabit Ethernet An Ethernet standard that transmits at 1 Gbps. Used mostly to connect high-end workstations and servers as well as for network backbones, Gigabit Ethernet transmits full duplex from point to point using switches and half duplex in a shared environment (CSMA/CD) using a hub. for capacity without the overhead of additional mesh hops.
The solution includes the following products: meshed access network - ZoneFlex 7762, a dual-band 802.11n Smart Wi-Fi outdoor access point, and ZoneFlex 2741, an 802.11g Smart Wi-Fi outdoor access point; high-speed wireless backhaul - ZoneFlex 7731, a new point-to-point 802.11n (5GHz) backhaul system; customer premises equipment - MediaFlex 2200, a purpose-built wireless gateway that extends Wi-Fi signals indoors; remote Wi-Fi service management - FlexMaster remote Wi-Fi systems management platform.
No pricing details were disclosed.
