Intuitive Cloud Managed Wi-Fi

Ruckus Cloud Wi-Fi takes the complexity out of deploying and managing your Wi-Fi network. Even a small IT staff can keep pace with the longest list of Wi-Fi demands-new users, guest networks, Wi-Fi-enabled buildings and campuses. Ruckus checks all the boxes for simple, intuitive cloud managed Wi-Fi:

  • Remote setup of additional APs and new sites in minutes
  • Intuitive web interface with virtually no learning curve
  • Full-featured mobile app for anywhere, anytime network management and monitoring

Lower Total Cost of Ownership (TCO)

You can count on Wi-Fi demands increasing. But can you count on budgets increasing, too? Here's one way to keep growth and budgets aligned: reduce the TCO of your WLAN infrastructure. Our APs offer better capacity and coverage, often able to support 30-50% more clients than competitive solutions. Think of all the APs you won't need to buy, plus the associated expenses you'll save. A more cost-efficient infrastructure is definitely the way to grow.

Use our TCO calculator to compare WLAN deployment costs with Ruckus Cloud Wi-Fi and other providers.

Complete Investment Protection

Wi-Fi technology is changing at a dizzying rate. Your own wireless environment is probably changing constantly, too. You may decide to shift your WLAN management approach. With Ruckus Cloud Wi-Fi, your Wi-Fi network investments are protected.

  • Change WLAN management from cloud to on-premises controller or vice versa
  • APs continue to work if subscription ends*

*APs will be on last known configuration, but without management capabilities and services that require connection to the Ruckus Cloud
