Sandals Resorts International Selects Ruckus Smart Wi-Fi For Massive Wi-Fi Upgrade To 23 Caribbean Luxury Properties

SUNNYVALE, Calif., March 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  Ruckus Wireless, Inc. (NYSE: RKUS) announced today that Sandals Resorts International (SRI), operator of Luxury Included ® Sandals Resorts for couples and Beaches Resorts for families, is making an extensive upgrade to its existing Smart Wi-Fi network across its 23 luxury resort properties.

SRI is deploying more than 1,200 of the latest Ruckus Smart wireless LAN (WLAN) access points (APs), including the new Ruckus ZoneFlex™ 7055 dual-band Wi-Fi wall switch, Ruckus ZoneFlex 7982 indoor and Ruckus ZoneFlex 7782 outdoor 802.11n 3x3:3 stream APs. 

The new SRI Smart Wi-Fi infrastructure is being deployed to deliver high-capacity, high-speed Wi-Fi service across thousands of acres of their resort properties in six Caribbean island nations, including Antigua, the Bahamas, Grenada, Jamaica, Saint Lucia, and the Turks and Caicos Islands. SRI's newly upgraded Smart Wi-Fi network will now support more than 6,000 guest rooms, and thousands of concurrent users.

The move to the most advanced Ruckus Smart Wi-Fi technology by this world-famous luxury hotel brand is essential to deliver ultra reliable, high-speed access to guests, many of whom need wireless connectivity for multiple smartphones, tablets, and other mobile devices, according to Bobby Stewart, Sandals Resorts International's director of Guest Networks.

In conjunction with the deployment of and powered by their new Ruckus Wi-Fi network, Sandals Resorts is in the process of rolling out a mobile app with free international calling capabilities to the U.S., Canada and to UK landlines, as well as local calls to Jamaican landlines, for guests staying at one of the seven Sandals Resorts in Jamaica, on their iPhone and Android mobile phones. SRI's corporate staff will also rely on Ruckus Smart Wi-Fi for use with their Wi-Fi based VoIP  (VoWiFi) handsets, as well as Wi-Fi equipped digital cameras, which are being used to capture on-property photos that are automatically uploaded to the SRI photo sales server, without requiring the photography team to return to the office.

"We've always been keenly impressed by the power and reliability of Ruckus Wi-Fi technology, as well as its extreme ease of use," said Stewart. "Our Wi-Fi network is run centrally by only two persons, with a little help from the local IT manager at each site, and we manage the entire network across all of our properties very easily. It continually manages and optimizes itself – and it performs beautifully."
