Dauphin DataCom Standardizes on Ruckus Wireless for the Next Generation of Wireless LANs

  (March 30, 2009)


HARRISBURG, Pa., March 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Dauphin DataCom (A Division of Dauphin Electric), a leading provider of technology solutions, has announced today that it has selected and is standardizing on Ruckus Wireless(TM) ZoneFlex(TM) Smart Wireless LAN (WLAN) products and technology to support next-generation wireless LAN (WLAN) applications within a wide range of enterprise environments.

Over the last six months, Dauphin has installed Ruckus Smart WLAN systems in a variety of enterprises and school districts including the Warwick School District, the Montgomery Area School District and the Waynesboro Area School District.

Dauphin's selection of Ruckus Smart Wi-Fi technology is based on growing demand for faster and more reliable Wi-Fi connectivity to support a myriad of media-rich applications from graphics-rich Internet access to IP-based voice and video communications.

"Given the explosion of wireless-enabled devices, we are seeing increased demand for more reliable, robust Wi-Fi solutions that deliver predictable performance at a competitive price range," said Kurt Mark, senior account manager at Dauphin DataCom. "Wi-Fi is no longer viewed as a nice-to-have but rather as an essential element for increasing productivity and reducing traditional operational costs. Ruckus has innovated products and technology in this area to deliver the next step in wireless reliability and performance - at a fraction of the cost of competitive alternatives."

Unlike other Wi-Fi technology, Smart Wi-Fi from Ruckus Wireless is based on state-of-the-art Wi-Fi signal routing technology that extends signal range and automatically adapts to changes in the environment that degrade performance, and allows enterprises to offer better coverage and more reliable services at a lower total cost of ownership.

"Schools are among the biggest benefactors of better Wi-Fi," said Mark. "The ever-changing environment within the education market coupled with more sophisticated applications and computing devices is pushing Wi-Fi technology to do much more than it ever has."

Ruckus Smart Wi-Fi is based on recent technical advances that enable Wi-Fi signals to be focused only toward users requiring service. Through the use of patented beamforming and beamsteering technology called BeamFlex(TM), Wi-Fi signals are constantly routed over the highest performing paths and around obstacles that cause interference and degraded performance.

"People are fed up with dropped connections, spotty coverage and flaky wireless performance," said David Callisch, VP of marketing at Ruckus Wireless. "If they are going to spend more on 802.11n technology, they want some assurance that the performance they are promised is delivered and that the user experience is dramatically better than it has been historically. We are giving them that assurance by making Wi-Fi much more deterministic."
