Ruckus Technology to Power Google Station Wi-Fi Hotspots in Three Emerging Countries

Ruckus Networks, an ARRIS company, today announced that Ruckus technology will be used in Google Station Wi-Fi hotspots in India, Indonesia and Mexico. Under the terms of the deal, Ruckus will provide devices and technologies enabling carrier-grade networks at Google Station hotspots. Ruckus will supply its virtual SmartZone™ controller, which can manage a virtual instance of the SmartZone controller, as well as indoor and outdoor Wi-Fi access points.

Google Station is a high-speed, high-quality public Wi-Fi platform that provides an easy set of tools to roll out Wi-Fi hotspots in public places, such as high-traffic locations like airports, malls, universities, railways and mass transit stations.

These hotspots deliver high-performance Wi-Fi using Ruckus’ patented adaptive antenna BeamFlex™ technology for increased connectivity performance and range, better signals and maximized power efficiency.

“Deploying Google Stations with Ruckus technologies is an important step to connecting the next billion users,” said David Shapiro, chief business officer of the Next Billion Users Initiative at Google. “Ruckus networks are simple to install and operationally cost efficient, enabling us to be up-and-running in no time. Even more, their robust Wi-Fi signal ensures constant connectivity to Google Station hotspots, so users can upload/download photos, manage point-of-sale and be constantly connected.”
