SUNNYVALE, Calif., Nov. 28, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Ruckus Wireless ® (NYSE: RKUS) today announced that for the second year in a row, the top worldwide hotel chains ranked as offering the "Best Hotel Wi-Fi" by HotelChatter all have one thing in common—they were smart to choose Ruckus technology to power their Wi-Fi networks.
HotelChatter's 2012 Hotel Wi-Fi Report named Kimpton Hotels, Peninsula Hotels, and Fairmont Hotels as having the best Wi-Fi in the world for their guests, ranking them first, second, and third, respectively. All three of these premier worldwide hotel chains know that reliable, robust Wi-Fi service is a prerequisite for their guests, and Ruckus ZoneFlex™ Wi-Fi technology is the best way to provide reliable high speed wireless Internet access.Ruckus ZoneFlex is one of the most popular Wi-Fi systems for hotels because it extends signal range and delivers consistent performance at long ranges. This is achieved through patented adaptive antenna technology that automatically focuses Wi-Fi signals only where they are needed, creating stronger signals that can be "steered" around obstacles and interference. The Ruckus ZoneFlex system is the only to combine SmartMesh Networking, directional, high-gain RF signal routing, and predictive channel selection for unprecedented coverage and performance at an affordable price. "We've gone to great lengths to deliver to our guests the best wireless experience possible and Ruckus has been integral in helping us make this happen," said Donald O'Grady, regional vice president of Property Technology for Kimpton Hotels and Restaurants. "With Ruckus we've been able to deploy fewer access points that deliver greater coverage and have seen customer satisfaction rise. That's a big part of why Kimpton is number one." Hotel chains like Kimpton, Peninsula and Fairmont that are aiming to increase revenues per available room (RevPAR) and maximize profitability use Ruckus Smart Wi-Fi ZoneFlex access points (APs) for: stronger Wi-Fi signals, ubiquitous coverage, more stable connections and consistent performance.
