3 WiFi. Whats going on?

4 Today3 Years from now # mobile devicesSome1 laptop & 1 smart phone per employee. UseLow-speed network access High-speed network access, voice, WiFi projectors, guest access, digital signage, security cameras, IPTV, etc. Edge networkHigh quality Wired, convenience WiFi High quality WiFi everywhere. Dramatic reduction in wired ports. CoverageLimited,100% coverage.

5 Don't know n/a Scalability Management Easy integration Security Cost Reliability

6 So Whats Wrong with WiFi? 1. WiFi signals are flaky 2. Performance is erratic 3. Coverage isnt ubiquitous 4. Cumbersome to configure 5. Time-consuming to deploy 6. Expensive

7 802.11n Wi­Fi on Steroids (300 Mbps) Combines multiple WiFi radios within a single system 5Ghz radio for n & a (300 Mbps) 2.4Ghz radio for b, g, n (300 Mbps) 5Ghz = MUCH cleaner airspace, 23 non-overlapping channels (vs. 3 non-overlapping channels with b/g) Leverages spatial multiplexing, channel bonding and other advanced techniques to boost performance

12 Twice the Performance (for dual-band n) Data Grade Video Grade 2.4GHz 5GHz Independent Open Air Wireless Testing Tells a Complete Story

13 Innovation #2 Mesh WiFi that Works Innovation #2 Mesh WiFi that Works

14 Eliminates Ethernet cable to every AP Uses RF signal routing to determine best paths to client and between mesh nodes Only mesh system that avoids interference Uses high-gain, long-range smart antennas to minimize hops, improve performance Deploys in half the time, half the cost of conventional WLANs Simple, simple, simple t o configure & manage First Intelligent, Centralized WLAN Mesh Solution for n and g Half the Cost Half the Time 3X the Performance

15 Innovation #3 Dynamic PSK (easy AD authentication) Innovation #3 Dynamic PSK (easy AD authentication)

16 RADIUS/AD ZoneDirector IDS Router 1. First time user connects to Ethernet port 5.User can now connect securely to the WLAN 3. Once authenticated, ZoneDirector auto- provisions the requisite WLAN settings and a unique, dynamic PSK in users wireless settings Internet 2. User specifies URL to be automatically configured for WLAN access ZoneFlex Key is bound to both user and device until invalidated

23 Ease of Use intuitive and simple to configure thanks to its interactive and modern Web-based interface Ruckus excels in simplicity with simple navigation Simple Deployment ZoneFlex's key attraction for many businesses will be its ease of installation and management….a system that can be installed and configured in minutes Range and Performance the best b/g coverage range we've tested the only product to deliver astonishing speeds at extreme ranges where all others failed to even connect


25 Poor wired network main driver for new WiFi network Cat 5 backbone to closets, old-Cat 3 to rooms Limited capacity to rooms (10-15 Mbps) Recabling rooms a non starter (est. $480,000) Low Guest Service Index scores hurting business Building construction an RF challenge Signal attenuation a concern Huge coverage area Three-wing configuration with long runs to guest rooms meant coverage challenges WiFi solutions for entire hotel from Xirrus, Cisco, Colubris and TeleAdapt $120K and higher WiFi Solves Wired Problem 802 guest rooms 15 floors (12 guest) 550,000 square feet Located near LAX Hotel designed to withhold direct hit from 747 H O S P I T A L I T Y

26 What was Done… H O S P I T A L I T Y Four ZoneFlex 2942s for each of the 12 guest room floors One at end of each wing one meshed in the middle 48 total aps, cost equals $35 per room. Redundant ZoneDirector 1050 controllers Entire WLAN configuration in under 30 minutes Deployment in 18 hours (with 2 people)

27 And the Results? H O S P I T A L I T Y Higher GSI scores Better performance than wired everywhere Overall WLAN less than ½ the cost of any other alternative Better reliability, rock-solid WiFi connections Video and voice ready, can now focus on rev-gen apps)
