Ruckus Intros Enhanced Router

SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- Ruckus Wireless, an innovator of smart Wi-Fi technology and systems, today introduced MediaFlex NG, the industry’s first and only carrier-class managed wireless services platform for the home.

Ruckus also announced that it has closed a new round of funding, led by Motorola Ventures and T-Online Ventures, and has been selected by the national telecommunications providers in Belgium and the Czech Republic to supply its MediaFlex system as the “cable-less” solution to reliably extend and distribute IPTV services inside the home (see related releases).

Deployed by over fifty (50) service providers worldwide in their production IPTV rollouts or home trials, the Ruckus MediaFlex wireless multimedia system is the only proven solution for in-home distribution of IPTV over standard Wi-Fi. Building on its lead in video-grade performance and whole-home coverage, the Ruckus MediaFlex NG is the first in-home wireless platform to support multiple virtual APs and extensive remote management capabilities, giving service providers unprecedented flexibility, security, visibility, and control over subscribers’ Wi-Fi environments.

Already the de-facto technology of choice for PC networking, Wi-Fi is also becoming the preferred technology for in-home distribution of new multimedia content and services, such as IPTV, MP3 streaming and mobile voice over IP.

“The next generation Ruckus MediaFlex system now gives us a way to extend and manage triple play services into the home with the least amount of disruption to our subscribers,” said David Tilley, broadband supervisor for Churchill County Communications in Fallon, Nevada. Churchill is the only county-owned and operated telephone company in the United States. “The Ruckus MediaFlex NG is the only system we’ve found that was built from the ground up to help providers reliably enable and improve service quality into the home over standard Wi-Fi. That’s a huge win for us and our customers.”
