Nearly One-Third of Brazil’s Public Universities Standardized on Ruckus Smart WiFi to Deliver More Reliable Connectivity to Tens of Thousands of Students and Staff

Last June 30, 2015, Ruckus Wireless, Inc. has announced that its Smart WiFi products and  technology have been chosen to be deployed across nearly one-third of Brazil’s public universities. Thousands of Ruckus ZoneFlex™ access points (APs) are being used for Ruckus Smart WiFi networks at these higher education institutions across Brazil to deliver high performance, reliable wireless connectivity to tens of thousands of students, faculty and staff.

The bring-your-own-device (BYOD) trend is growing at a tremendous rate, and has reached education markets globally, innovating the way people teach and learn, as devices are utilized both at homes and in schools.

The experience with Ruckus equipment was very positive, the deployment was easy and fast, and the quality and reach of the access points in the IFRN wireless network received many compliments from users. We now have flexibility, control, signal stability, and high density per AP with Ruckus. We plan to expand our Ruckus wireless network to provide complete coverage in all of our campus environments.

Prior to Ruckus, we just didn’t have a simple and comprehensive way to manage the wireless network, which demanded a great deal of work and maintenance. Now with the Ruckus products and technology, we have great management capacity, enabling us to know the user demand by access point, divide the APs by groups, send SSIDs to different groups, authenticate users using the 802.1X protocol, and we can solve problems faster because, for example, when an access point is disconnected, the controller tells us immediately. We plan to expand our WiFi network with Ruckus Wireless equipment as we currently work with 802.11n equipment, and we would like in the future to adopt the 802.11ac standard.
