Build an IoT Access Network
Organizations seeking to deploy IoT solutions face a complex, fragmented ecosystem of standards, devices and services. This complexity often slows or stalls enterprise IoT deployments, due to uncertain return-on-investment. To encourage adoption, many enterprise IoT solution vendors have developed infrastructure silos that address a single use case but don't readily integrate with other silos, and don’t make use of existing infrastructure investments.
An IoT access network addresses these issues by consolidating multiple physical-layer networks into a single converged network. This common network simplifies IoT endpoint onboarding, establishes uniform security protocols and converges IoT endpoint management and policy-setting. In short, an IoT access network enables organizations to more quickly realize benefits from IoT use cases.
The Ruckus IoT Suite simplifies the creation of IoT access networks through the reuse of LAN and WLAN infrastructure, thus shortening deployment duration and reducing the cost to support multiple IoT solutions.
Ruckus IoT-ready Access Points
Ruckus access points that accommodate Ruckus IoT Modules to connect both Wi-Fi and non-Wi-Fi IoT endpoints.
Ruckus IoT Modules
Radio or radio-and-sensor devices that connect to a Ruckus IoT-ready AP to enable endpoint connectivity based on standards such as Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), Zigbee and LoRa.
A WLAN controller that provides a single management framework for both the WLAN and the IoT access network.
Ruckus IoT Controller
A virtual controller, deployed in tandem with a Ruckus SmartZone OS-based controller, that performs connectivity, device and security management functions for non-WiFi devices, as well as facilitate disparate endpoint management coordination and APIs for northbound integration with analytics software and IoT cloud services.
