Large stadiums and convention centers deploy Ruckus Wireless solutions

Infotech Lead America: Ruckus Wireless has landed several large contracts from over a dozen high-density public venues around the world, including the Rio Tinto Stadium in Salt Lake City and the Chennai Stadium in India.

Ruckus Wireless will provide high capacity Wi-Fi products and technology to the 28,000 seater Rio Tinto stadium and the 50,000 seater Chennai Stadium. Smart Wi-Fi solutions meet the security requirements of the different Wi-Fi networks used in large, public venues, such as those for point-of-sale (POS), ticketing, business management systems, guest and contractors, special events and internet and walled garden access for fans.

Ruckus deployed a combination of  ZoneFlex 7782-N outdoor APs and dual-band Ruckus ZoneFlex 7363 indoor APs in the Rio Tinto Stadium to provide coverage in the concourses, press boxes, and business offices.

Ruckus recently introduced a ‘Secure Hotspot’ technology that gets configured automatically. It is based on Ruckus patented Dynamic Pre-Shared Key (Dynamic PSK). Enterprises can use a unique pre shared key to get secured encrypted access to public network Wi-Fi services.
