Ruckus Wireless has recently outlined its SmartCell Architecture, a unique recipe for creating carrier class Wi-Fi networks to deal with the densification challenge sweeping the industry. The company's new carrier-class Smart Wi-Fi products offer key ingredients that service providers can utilise to quickly and easily inject capacity into their networks.

The Ruckus SmartCell Architecture gives service providers a scalable, flexible and highly agile blueprint for implementing Smart Wi-Fi to address the data-driven transformation occurring across the industry. It delivers a wide range of options for Wi-Fi integration that best suit existing mobile operator, MSO, and fixed line infrastructures radio access, network control, subscriber management and value added services. The company's wireless architecture achieves this by focusing on five key integration concerns:

  1. Simplifying and enhancing the user experience with Hotspot 2.0, which makes the process of Wi-Fi roaming as easy to use and secure as with cellular;
  2. Standardising and securing the wireless connection between client devices and access points through the use of 802.1x and 802.11i;
  3. Increasing the reach and reliability of the radio access network with patented, carrier-class adaptive antenna technology and network optimisation tools;
  4. Integrating Wi-Fi with existing core systems at the network edge through the use of emerging Wi-Fi/cellular integration protocol standards such as S2a mobility over GTP (SaMOG) and GPRS tunnelling protocol (GTP), and;
  5. Enabling advanced service functionality unique to Wi-Fi RANs, such as indoor location information and efficient multi-tenancy support for enterprise managed services.

The products and technologies built upon the SmartCell Architecture give service providers the key ingredients to easily weave Wi-Fi into the fabric of their existing networks with the goal of improving today's mobile experience and shielding users from having to know which radio access technology they are using. Ultimately, it enables a highly scalable system for service providers to allow the seamless transition of users between 3G/4G and Wi-Fi.
