New Ruckus Smart Wi-Fi Innovations Take The Complexity Out Of Optimizing Wi-Fi Networks Overwhelmed With Mobile Devices

SUNNYVALE, Calif., Jan. 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  Ruckus Wireless, Inc. (NYSE: RKUS) today introduced two new Smart Wi-Fi technologies, SmartWay™ and BeamFlex+™, which simplify the administration and improve the performance of mobile devices and traffic over Smart Wi-Fi networks.

The proliferation of mobile devices within organizations of all types is creating new performance and management challenges for IT administrators.  Not only are users now armed with multiple Wi-Fi-enabled devices that are much more mobile in nature compared to traditional laptops, but network infrastructure services and devices, such as printers, projectors, digital media receivers and file servers, are becoming mobile with the integration of Wi-Fi.

"Network services devices that have historically been accessible through wired Ethernet connections are now integrating Wi-Fi to provide greater deployment flexibility," said Steve Martin, VP of Engineering for Ruckus Wireless. "For these devices to be accessible by users on Wi-Fi networks, they must advertise themselves. These advertisements, often performed by multicast protocols such as Bonjour or UPnP, create unique challenges that administrators must struggle to solve."

Real Problems that Need Smarter Answers

New mobile devices such as Apple iPhones, iPads and AppleTV operating on Wi-Fi networks can generate large volumes of traffic as these multicast protocols constantly advertise the availability of the devices. This broadcast traffic is transmitted at lower speeds and spills across the entire wireless local area network (WLAN), slowing down the performance and capacity of WLANs.

Beyond controlling new mobile traffic on Wi-Fi networks, the use of mobile devices such as tablets and smartphones present new performance and connectivity problems as the orientation of these devices constantly change.   

With the typical use of mobile devices, users don't always hold them perfectly vertical or horizontal. Consequently, Wi-Fi signals are transmitted and received improperly.  This causes a signal imbalance between the communication of Wi-Fi access points (APs) and client devices, resulting in the degradation of Wi-Fi performance. The new Ruckus SmartWay and BeamFlex+ technologies were specifically developed to solve these problems.
