Ruckus Networks has announced availability of the new version of it SmartZone WLAN controllers.

The new controllers included updated SmartZoneOS software, which enables controllers to become a single network element to control and manage both Ruckus access points (APs) and switches.

The new SmartZone network controller family includes physical and virtual appliances designed for managed service providers, operators and medium to large enterprises.

Moe Raslan, Regional Sales Director for Ruckus Networks in the Middle East and Africa commented: "The launch of Smart Zone network controllers will strongly resonate with the direction Middle East is heading. Regional leaders, predominantly across Gulf countries, invest in the development of smart cities to support rapidly growing populations and diversify their economies beyond oil industry. Regional entities have been busy rolling out and upgrading various services and infrastructures to meet their rapidly evolving B2C, B2B, transportation, water-management and urban-planning needs. Connectivity is one of the most crucial elements for a successful development of smart cities and Ruckus' innovative solutions are designed to ensure these merits are maintained consistently."

First introduced in 2015, SmartZoneOS-powered controllers combine scalability, tiered multi-tenancy, architectural flexibility and extensive APIs into a single centrally-managed element. These capabilities enable managed service providers to implement complex, multi-tier and as-a-service business models using their own management applications. They also allow operators to manage subscriber data traffic on a massive scale, while integrating traffic flows and network data into existing network architecture. SmartZone network controllers further enable enterprises to simplify network management through consolidation and use of built-in troubleshooting and analytics tools.
