Top 5 reasons why Ruckus Cloud Wi-Fi wins against the competition
Updated: Jan 6, 2020
In a previous blog, we listed the top 5 reasons to adopt Ruckus Cloud Wi-Fi, along with our 5 favorite reports generated by Ruckus Cloud Wi-Fi. In this post, we’ll explore the top 5 reasons why Ruckus Cloud Wi-Fi continues to outpace the competition.
Like its Wi-Fi 5 predecessors, Ruckus Wi-Fi 6 access points (APs) outperform the competition in terms of capacity, coverage, and performance.
APs packaged with certain competing cloud Wi-Fi solutions typically self-brick if a subscription isn’t renewed. In real-world terms, this means the AP cannot broadcast SSIDs or switch any packets. In contrast, while an administrator cannot log in to Ruckus Cloud for management, our APs continue to operate with the most recent configuration and latest AP firmware image.
Our cloud solution allows users to do more with less, resulting in a significantly lower TCO. Indeed, this solution offers fast and ubiquitous coverage – with fewer APs deployed. This means a reduced number of cabling and switch ports, with customers typically seeing significant savings of approximately 33% – 50%. Our TCO calculator can be used to compare WLAN deployment costs.
Ruckus Cloud Wi-Fi updates are completely automatic. This means users do not have to spend time and effort manually updating AP firmware or closely monitoring analytics migration. Moreover, new features are highlighted and immediately available for all upgraded APs.
Ruckus Cloud Wi-Fi supports mesh resiliency, thereby enabling (mesh) networks to survive cloud downtime and outages. In addition, AP configuration remains intact during cloud downtime, while mesh functionality is preserved even after multiple user reboots.
Ruckus Cloud Wi-Fi enables IT departments to provision, monitor, optimize and troubleshoot an enterprise-grade Wi-Fi network with intuitive simplicity via a single web dashboard or mobile app. A cloud-based network from Ruckus is a win-win scenario for everyone. IT gets easy management. End users get a consistently great Wi-Fi experience that is fast, reliable and secure. Want to learn more? You can access our Ruckus Cloud Wi-Fi interactive demo here.
