CommScope has announced that Ruckus SmartZone controller will support of Google’s Orion Wi-fi, which lets carriers offer a friction-less and secure experience when connecting their subscribers to public Wi-Fi in venues.
“Carrier Wi-Fi offload in public venues can be frustrating for consumers and even more so for venue managers and owners as they negotiate rates and try to solve roaming costs between operators,” said Pramod Badjate, senior vice president for the Ruckus business, CommScope. “Developing this new platform for Wi-Fi offload with Google helps create the lasting connections CommScope has always delivered to consumers while enabling companies to monetize and secure their networks.”
The RUCKUS SmartZone from CommScope supports Hotspot 2.0 enabling devices to automatically detect and then connect to the Wi-Fi network. In addition, Ruckus SmartZone provides advanced security and support for RadSec.
“Orion Wifi is about more connectivity for consumers, more options for carriers, and more revenue and happier visitors for Wi-Fi network owners,” said Raj Gajwani, director at Google’s Area 120. “CommScope’s Ruckus SmartZone allows venues to easily configure Orion Wi-fi with the highest levels of security.”
