Ruckus Wireless Inc Research Report

Airtel Africa has chosen Ruckus Wireless to provide high-traffic wireless access points for a large-scale project that will introduce Wi-Fi networks across 17 African countries.

Installing Wi-Fi is more attractive than adding 3G and 4G LTE networks because of its affordability.

Aside from this potential deal, Ruckus has announced that Nomsys LLC has selected Ruckus Smart Wi-Fi products and technology to create the largest Wi-Fi network in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia.

This partnership gives us a chance to unlock that potential." Furthermore, Ericsson has also partnered with Telstra to deliver world-class LTE experience for Telstra users and expand Telstra's LTE networks in Australia.
