A network is the central nervous system of any connected facility. We’ll help lay a solid and reliable foundation that’s ready for today’s technology and for tomorrow’s. Our experience has shown a hard-wired solution almost always works best. So, why not wireless? Integrated systems represents a new challenge for conventional networks as networks are evolving to converged networks able to handle efficiently audio,video,data,voice,control when properly designed. The central backbone of your system needs to be able to allocate enough bandwidth for streaming audio video services plus real time control from touch panels and at the same time isolate the traffic between the different systems to keep broadcast at minimum and maximize speed.
Routing voice traffic over a converged IP network enables organizations to eliminate traditionally separate networks for voice and data traffic, and create a more flexible telecommunications network. Voice over IP (VoIP) facilitates the transfer of data over the network with quality of service and traffic prioritization to ensure voice quality. VoIP travels over the Internet, rather then the Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN) to provide global reach and reduce call charges. The use of an IP network also makes it easier to add new extensions or move telephones to other locations on the network, improving the flexibility of communication. Users can simply plug their IP phones into any location on the network.
An IP network provides the basis for high-speed data communication between any locations on the network. The use of IP also makes it easier to link other locations, such as branches, retail outlets or supply chain partners to the network, making it easier to exchange information. Transporting data on the same network as other communication media makes it possible to build multimedia applications. In a contact center, for example, customer service representatives can share Web pages with customers during a telephone call. Multimedia conferencing can include video, documents and other content in addition to audio.
Internet video communication is now 40 percent of consumer Internet traffic, and will reach 62 percent by the end of 2015, according to the Cisco Visual Networking Index. Organizations can eliminate dedicated video circuits built to support videoconferencing. Desktop videoconferencing over a converged network makes conferencing more accessible. It enables users to hold conferences without dedicated facilities, making it easier to set up meetings on short notice and reducing travel costs.
Converged networks supports unified communication (UC), making it possible for employees to access all of their communications through a single point, rather than separate devices for email, voicemail, instant messages, audio and video conference calls and messages. Technology enables users to let callers know where or how to contact them, saving time and reducing caller frustration.
Ruckus Wireless is a pioneer in the wireless infrastructure market, enabling carriers and enterprises to stay ahead of the exploding demand for high-bandwidth applications and services. The Ruckus Smart Wi-Fi technology redefines what’s possible in wireless network performance with flexibility, reliability, and affordability. We call this Pervasive Performance.
Ruckus have never relied on off-the-shelf, reference design radio technology – it just doesn’t deliver the capacity, range or interference mitigation necessary to make the dream of high performance wireless a reality. Instead, we’ve assembled a team of the best and brightest wireless minds in the world to deliver the creative solutions needed to realize our Pervasive Performance vision.
So what is Pervasive Performance?To all of us at Ruckus, it’s our mantra. It’s what we live every day; the first thought on our minds while we’re enjoying our morning coffee to the last thing we think about as we’re wishing our families a restful sleep. It’s our ultimate goal. To you, it may seem like a marketing term…but it’s not. It’s a combination of innovative features needed to achieve the goal of delivering the most consistent and highest-speed wireless performance possible – anywhere, everywhere, all the time. Let us explain the various components that are absolutely necessary to achieve this unprecedented level of wireless performance:
- Adaptive Signal Control – your grandfather’s omni-directional antenna configs won’t cut it any longer.
- Interference Mitigation – there’s plenty of noise out there, and it’s only going to get louder.
- Capacity-driven Channel Assignment – long gone are the days of “set-it-and-forget-it” channel planning. Let’s get dynamic, people.
- Dynamic Polarization Diversity - client devices are becoming increasingly small, smart and mobile…yesterday’s fixed polarity just won’t deliver acceptable connectivity to this Generation Next mobile device.
- Maximized Signal Strength – dBs are sexy. Well, maybe only to us radio heads…but they sure make a difference in wireless connectivity.
- Network Capacity Optimization - forget how many Mbps it says on the box or the Website or the datasheet…the only thing that matters is how much you can really get through the pipes. It takes some serious intelligence to maximize the real capacity of wireless.
