Laptops, tablets, phones. Employees, customers, guests. Everyone needs a reliable Wi-Fi connection but it’s getting harder and harder to manage so many devices and provide all users with the speed and consistency each one needs.
When it comes to Wi-Fi, there is no shortage of choices from some of the world’s biggest and most respected technology companies. But which ones truly outperform the rest?
An Intense Wi-Fi Access Point Test
Recently, an extensive performance and capacity test of Wi-Fi access points was performed by the Croatian Academic and Research Network (CARNet). The experiment pitted top notch vendors against each other, testing 802.11ac and 802.11n wireless access points (APs) within a real world scenario: a high-capacity classroom environment with high interference.
Access points were provided by Aerohive, Aruba, Cisco/Meraki, HP, Ruckus, Ubiquiti and Xirrus.

Ruckus APs surpassed the competition in a high-density environment by 22%-76% in Aggregate TCP Throughput.
Nineteen different access points were put through a variety of scenarios and progressively pushed to their limits. In the end, Ruckus Smart Wi-Fi APs outperformed the rest, with top scores in nearly every stage of testing.
The Ruckus Smart Wi-Fi Difference
So what exactly is it that differentiates Ruckus from all the rest? BeamFlex technology.
This unique Wi-Fi deployment technology uses highly controlled Wi-Fi signals, sent only when and where they are needed. This technique leads to a wide variety of benefits:
• Decreased interference
• Increased signal strength
• Larger coverage areas
• Faster data rates
• More devices connecting simultaneously
• Higher throughput
• Fewer access points / less equipment
• Fewer drops
• Fewer switch ports
In short, users enjoy a better Wi-Fi experience at higher speeds using fewer access points.
