Nearly one-third of the country’s public universities standardize on Ruckus Smart Wi-Fi to deliver connectivity to tens of thousands of students and staff

wi-fiRuckus Wireless, Inc. announced that its Smart Wi-Fi products and technology have been selected and deployed across nearly one-third of all public (aka federal) universities in Brazil.

Thousands of Ruckus ZoneFlex™ access points (APs) are being used for Ruckus Smart Wi-Fi 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 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,” said Carlos Eduardo Gomes do Egito, IT analyst of the Federal Institute of Rio Grande do Norte (IFRN). “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.”
