Saint Joseph's University Makes Big BYOD Move To Smarter Wi-Fi

Stocks in this article: RKUS

SUNNYVALE, Calif., May 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  Ruckus Wireless, Inc. (NYSE: RKUS) announced today that Saint Joseph's University (SJU), an 8,800-student Jesuit university located in Philadelphia, PA has begun to replace its legacy Wi-Fi network with Ruckus Smart Wi-Fi.


Saint Joseph's has already deployed more than 100 of the latest Ruckus Smart wireless LAN (WLAN) access points (APs), including the Ruckus ZoneFlex™ 7982 indoor 802.11n 3x3:3 stream APs, and has plans to install 150 more in the coming months.

The current network is installed in two five-story student housing buildings as well as two academic buildings, and the 10,000-square-foot Campion Student Center, which includes two cafeterias, a movie theater, computer stations, and student meeting room and lounge. In the next year, the network will expand to provide coverage to nearly 20 academic and student housing buildings, administrative offices, and various indoor and outdoor areas of the university with Ruckus Smart Wi-Fi.

The university's IT Infrastructure team, led by Jim Brady, assistant director of Network Services, made the decision to upgrade to the Ruckus Smart Wi-Fi infrastructure in order to deliver high-capacity, high-speed Wi-Fi service to support a growing number of mobile device users.

"When BYOD became a bigger concern for us, we realized our legacy network wasn't handling demand as well as needed," said Brady. "We believed it was in the university's best interest for us to undergo due diligence, and we evaluated our options for replacing our legacy system. We looked at several other vendors, but Ruckus was the one that really shined – and the system came at a lower price-point.  So, choosing Ruckus became a no-brainer for us."

Ruckus Smart Wi-Fi Passes the Saint Joseph's Test

According to Brady, a growing number of students and staff are using multiple mobile devices, laptops, and tablets at any given time. The Ruckus network currently supports roughly 600 concurrent clients during peak usage times with 30-60 MBps uplink and downlink speeds.
