Stocks in this article: RKUS

SAN JOSE, Calif., March 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- With the roar of a chainsaw, Mayor Chuck Reed and Councilmember Sam Liccardo (District 3) with innovative partners, SmartWAVE Technologies and Ruckus Wireless, Inc. (NYSE: RKUS), cut the faux Ethernet cable on Thursday, March 14, 2013 to mark the availability of the free, Wickedly Fast Wi-Fi Network in Downtown San Jose. The Wickedly Fast Wi-Fi, operated by the City of San Jose, is accessible through the downtown core from East St. John Street to the north, portions of Balbach Street and Viola Avenue to the south, North 6 th Street to the east, and Almaden Boulevard to the west. The new network will deliver Wi-Fi speeds up to three to four times faster than conventional, existing Wi-Fi public networks across the country.

"As the Capital of Silicon Valley, San Jose is proud to help bring this advanced outdoor Wi-Fi technology to everyone who lives, works, and visits our downtown," remarked Mayor Chuck Reed. "I'd like to thank SmartWAVE Technologies and Ruckus Wireless for partnering with us on this innovative project during a time of limited resources."

The City of San Jose launched this unique public/private partnership to help bring the Wi-Fi network to life. Over the past year, Ruckus and its integration partner, SmartWAVE Technologies, have been providing Smart Wi-Fi equipment and ongoing technical and engineering support to the City's IT Department throughout the deployment of the network. The result is the Wickedly Fast Wi-Fi Network, created with leading-edge technology, developed in Silicon Valley, at minimal cost to the City.

The network also benefits the City's downtown parking infrastructure, primarily the pay-to-park meters, by improving the speed by which time-sensitive transactions occur. In addition, it connects City facilities by providing high-speed alternatives to traditional telecommunications circuits.
