Ruckus technology addresses WiFi capacity and coverage challenges caused by the ever-increasing amount of traffic on wireless networks due to accelerated adoption of mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets.

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

Ruckus Smart Positioning Technology (SPoT™) LBS provides key data, such as footfall traffic visualization via heat-map by zone, floor, and venue. Ruckus SPoT LBS can be deployed as a cloud-subscription service, or as Virtual SPoT, a virtualized instance of SPoT deployed on-premises or in a customer’s data center without any reoccurring costs.

Purple WiFi and Ruckus

Purple can be deployed on new or existing Ruckus infrastructure. Purple is an over the top (OTT) solution for Ruckus Smart WiFi and Ruckus Smart Positioning Technology (SPoT).
