Ruckus Wireless’ (News - Alert) ZoneFlex high-capacity smart wireless LAN (WLAN) systems deployed at Time Warner Cable arena in Charlotte, North Carolina provided high quality Wi-Fi technology for the 2012 Democratic National Convention.
Ruckus claimed that its WLAN systems bring power and simplicity together for large-scale indoor deployments along with all the requisite capabilities required for places like an arena and those abilities include seamless interoperability, advanced Wi-Fi security, massive scalability, best-in-class performance, robust WLAN management and more.
The new Time Warner (News - Alert) Cable Arena Wi-Fi network replaces a legacy Wi-Fi network with 120+ purpose-built, ZoneFlex high-capacity, indoor and outdoor Wi-Fi access points. The point feature adaptive antenna arrays that enable the Wi-Fi systems to focus signal to places that demand transmissions and annul any interferences caused by obstacles.
Ruckus is confident that as more visitors carrying smartphones, iPads and other wireless-only devices visit the convention, its enhanced Wi-Fi network would cater to the demands for continuous access and activities like uploading and streaming video, use of games and interactive apps, and surfing the Web.
