?Ruckus releases new version of SmartZone operating system

Ruckus Wireless has made available version 3.5 of its SmartZone operating system (OS), which powers the industry’s highest capacity controller portfolio, including the newly announced SmartZone 300 (SZ300) high-scale control and management appliance.

The new OS comes with more than 30 new features and enhancements, making it easier than ever for IT professionals to improve the end-user experience and to better align security and policy posture with a diverse user device constituency.

New capabilities also enable enterprises and managed service providers to easily and securely implement complex network architectures and multi-tier business models.

More than 2,000 enterprise and service provider organisations have deployed SmartZone controllers since 2015, managing in excess of 600,000 access points collectively.

Rohit Mehra, vice president of network infrastructure at IDC (International Data Corporation), said: “Cloud-managed wireless services revenue is growing at 26 per cent, far faster than the enterprise WLAN equipment market.

“WLAN vendors that can build products that enable those service providers to grow their own businesses profitably stand to outperform the market. With its SmartZone portfolio and its latest enhancements, Ruckus is clearly vying to be a dominant vendor in this segment. At the same time, the company is investing in universally critical functionality related to end-user experience management, security and analytics.”

SmartZone OS 3.5 provides IT with tools to better ensure a quality experience, such as Visual Connection Diagnostics (VCD), which enables IT to react in real time to end-user problems, visually troubleshooting the client connection process, pinpointing the failure stage and identifying the likely cause of failure.

It also includes new ‘super-KPIs’, which when combined with visual alerts and pivot-table functionality provide IT with a more effective means of predicting end-user experience degradation, reducing the time IT must spend on identifying systemic failures.

Additionally, there is near real-time push-streaming, which enables IT to effectively respond to rapidly deteriorating network conditions by allowing third-party or custom-built analytics tools to consume key performance indicators (KPIs) with no delay, no fidelity loss and no need for IT to create a firewall pinhole.

Yves Premel-Cabic, head of engineering at WiFirst, concluded by saying that the latest SmartZone software was making “browsing across the user interface straightforward and simple, with the ability to access configuration and monitoring on a single page”.
