Ruckus – Unleashed
The days when a consumer-grade Wi-Fi could meet most small business needs are over. Today, even small businesses need fast, reliable, and always-on connectivity for dozens or even hundreds of devices. At the same time, with few (if any!) IT staff, small businesses don’t have the time or expertise to install and manage Wi-Fi.
Ruckus Unleashed is a high-performance, simple-to-setup, easy-to-manage, and affordable portfolio of access points (APs). These APs use patented technologies to deliver industry-leading performance but in a package designed and priced for small businesses.
With Zero-Touch Mesh, set up your entire Wi-Fi network in a few simple steps from a mobile device or browser with an intuitive, easy-to-understand user interface. Gain detailed insights about your network and perform all key administrative tasks from anywhere with the free Ruckus Unleashed mobile app (available on App Store and Google Play).
