SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- Ruckus Wireless, an innovator in next-generation smart Wi-Fi technology, today announced the appointment of John McGann, formerly BT account manager at Juniper Networks, to sales director for Northern Europe. Robert Ranson also joins the company as senior technical support engineer, bringing with him over twenty years experience at a range of companies, including Alteon WebSystems, Phoenix IT Services and Alcatel Data Networks. In addition, Edward Felmer has been appointed director of systems engineering, Northern Europe and joins Ruckus Wireless from Array Networks, where he was technical director for Northern Europe.

With these appointments, Ruckus Wireless extends its European sales and technical operations, enabling the company to effectively support the increasing number of major service providers rolling out its MediaFlex system, as well as continue to grow business and strike new deals throughout the region. McGann, Ranson and Felmer will be based in the UK.

McGann will be responsible for developing and maintaining new service provider customers in Northern Europe. With over 20 years of sales experience, gained at companies including Juniper Networks, Unisphere Networks and Cicso Systems, he brings with him extensive knowledge of opening up and growing new customers. He will report to Mark Mitchell, VP sales, EMEA. Ranson's role will be to offer technical support to Ruckus' EMEA customers and resellers. He will report to Kyung Yi, vice president of customer advocacy for Ruckus Wireless. Felmer will look after systems engineering, working alongside McGann and reporting to Scott Reeves, technical director, EMEA.

"These three appointments represent an important stage of the development of our EMEA operations," said Selina Lo, CEO and president of Ruckus Wireless. "IPTV is already well established in this region, but we expect uptake to explode over the next year as more and more telecoms providers prepare to launch commercial services. With a stronger EMEA team, we'll be able to meet new customer demand, support existing customers, and ultimately bring location free TV to consumers across Europe."
