Their challenges are to ability to adapt to a variety of different building and environments, elegant and easy to provision BYOD framework and higher density user connectivity per AP. They chose Ruckus to overcome these challenges. They have implemented Ruckus 500 ZoneFlex 802.11ac indoor and outdoor Smart Wi-Fi access points, ZoneDirector 5000 Smart WLAN controllers, SmartCell Insight reporting/analytics platform and CloudPath BYOD auto on boarding.
