    Two of Britain's Largest Exhibition Venues Choose Ruckus Wireless

    This is a press release we blogged about a while ago, that didnt make its way onto Edugeek. Its something Net-Ctrl and @Aggy think is a great example of the capabilites of the Ruckus Wireless solution, so if you have a spare few minutes and fancy a quick read see below for the full report from Ruckus Wireless.


    Two of London’s premiere exhibition venues, Olympia and Earls Court, who see over 2.2 million visitors come through their doors each year; have replaced their former Aruba Networks system with Ruckus Wireless. The change is in order to address previous shortfalls including poor reliability, performance and scalability problems. Both exhibition halls also noticed the need to provide mobile data offload from the increasingly congested cellular networks.

    The new Ruckus Wireless systems will provide high speed, dual band (2.4 and 5Ghz) 802.11n Wi-Fi technology, capable of supporting up to 600 Mbps. Both venues have also benefited from 35% fewer access points, whilst delivering extender coverage and up to 10 times the performance they previously experienced.

    The venues carried out speed testing between the Aruba WLAN and Ruckus solutions, they found Aruba delivered 0.2 Mbps of uplink and downlink performance, compared to 16Mbps uplink and downlink throughput from the Ruckus solution.

    Yes its a pitty that they didn`t upgrade the uplinks to the buildings at the same time... All the users at Bett connecting via Ruckus seemed to take down their uplink...
    New systems always take some time to bed in of course.

    That said, Wireless in that building with so much wireless interference its a challenge to get a system that allows connections which Ruckus did brilliantly.

    I believe Ruckus are also shortlisted to provide the City wide wireless solution along with BT and another company whose name escapes me at the moment.
