  1. Smarter WiFi for Hospitality Building Better andMore Cost Effective WiFi Environments NO CONNECTION A “Big Dog” Partner

  2. Hospitality Customers • Holiday Inn Express (Altanta) • Comfort Suites (Altanta) • Marines Memorial Hotel (SF) • Courtyard Marriott Buckhead (Atlanta) • Lakeside Inn and Casino (Lake Tahoe) • Holiday Inn Select (Strongsville, Ohio) • Doubletree Club Hotel (Philadelphia) • Fairfield Inn (Merrimack, NH) • Residence Inn (Dedham, MA) • Crowne Plaza (Albany, NY) • Crowne Plaza Hotel (Phoeniz,AZ) • Holiday Inn West (Phoenix, AZ) • Radisson Phoenix Airport • Courtyard by Marriott (Bentonville, AK) • Residence Inn (Little Rock, AR) • Marines Hotel (San Francisco, CA) • Marriot Denver Airport • And Many More……

  3. WiFi. What’s going on?

  4. Where is the ‘puck going’ with WiFi?

  5. Reliability Cost Security Easy integration Management Scalability n/a Don't know 0 10 20 30 40 Wireless LANs: What Matters Most?

  6. So What’s Wrong with WiFi? WiFi signals are flaky Performance is erratic Coverage isn’t ubiquitous Cumbersome to configure Time-consuming to deploy Expensive

  7. 802.11n • Wi­Fion Steroids (300 Mbps) • Combines multiple WiFiradios within a single system • 5Ghz radio for 802.11n & 802.11a (300 Mbps) • 2.4Ghz radio for 802.11b, 802.11g, 802.11n (300 Mbps) • 5Ghz = MUCH cleaner airspace, 23 non-overlapping channels (vs. 3 non-overlapping channels with 802.11b/g) • Leverages “spatial multiplexing”, channel bonding and other advanced techniques to boost performance

  8. Ruckus WiFi Innovations

  9. Innovation #1 Dynamic Beamforming

  10. BeamFlex provides Adaptive WiFi Control Directional, high-gain smart antenna Continually picks the best signal path to clients Adaptive beam forming and steering

  11. The Ultimate Benefit Source: Ruckus Customer Test Location: Commercial high rise building in Canada More Consistent Performance, Better Range Top-Tier Enterprise AP Ruckus AP 200 ft 200 ft Upper Floor 125 ft 125 ft AP 200 ft 200 ft Lower Floor 125 ft 125 ft 20-22 Mbps 15-20 Mbps 10-15 Mbps 5-10 Mbps AP on upper floor

  12. Twice the Performance (for dual-band 802.11n) Independent “Open Air” Wireless Testing Tells a Complete Story 2.4GHz 2.4GHz Data Grade Video Grade 5GHz 5GHz Data Grade Video Grade

  13. Innovation #2 Mesh WiFi that Works

  14. Introducing SmartMesh™ First Intelligent, Centralized WLAN Mesh Solution for 802.11n and 802.11g • Eliminates Ethernetcable to every AP • Uses RF signal routingto determine best paths to client and between mesh nodes • Only mesh system that avoids interference • Uses high-gain, long-rangesmart antennas to minimize hops, improve performance • Deploys in half the time, half the costof conventional WLANs • Simple, simple, simple to configure & manage Half the Cost Half the Time 3X the Performance

  15. Innovation #3 Dynamic PSK (easy AD authentication)

  16. How Dynamic PSK™ Works 1. First time user connects to Ethernet port ZoneFlex 2942 2. User specifies URL to be automatically configured for WLAN access 3. Once authenticated, ZoneDirector auto-provisions the requisite WLAN settings and a unique, dynamic PSK in user’s wireless settings RADIUS/AD ZoneDirector 4. Key is bound to both user and device until invalidated Router • User can now connect securely to the WLAN IDS Internet

  17. Ruckus ZoneFlex Solution

  18. ZoneFlex Simple-to-Use, Industrial-Strength WLANs ZoneFlex 2942 802.11g AP • Best WiFi on the planet • WLAN-wide optimum signal path selection • WLAN-wide interference avoidance • WLAN-wide automatic RF coordination • Effortless everything • Pluggable, meshable, easy to install/expand • Wizard-based configuration • Automatic client administration • Advanced security simplified • Unmatched price/value • Unprecedented CAPEX savings • Lowest OPEX • Breakthrough feature/functionality • “Triple-Play” over WiFi • Date/Voice/Video over WiFi ZoneFlex 7762 Outdoor dual band 802.11n ZoneDirector 1000 and 3000 Smart/OS FlexMaster

  20. ZoneFlex Smart APs Indoor Outdoor

  21. 802.11n for the Triple Play in Hospitality Introducing the ZoneFlex™ 7962 802.11n • Dual Band 802.11n • 2.4 GHz – data and voice • 5 GHz – video • 8 SSID’s per each band • Centrally managed • Integrated smart antenna array • Availability: Now • MPEG 2 Stream = up to 3 HD TVs • MPEG 4 Stream = up to 6 HD TV’s

  22. Triple Play Deployment in Hospitality Demonstrate Flawless Video Delivery Common Data SSID (2.4G) Floor 3 Video SSID (5 G) Floor 2 Video SSID (5 G) Floor 1 Video SSID (5 G) • Guaranteed video/voice priority over data • Centrally manageable by FlexMaster or ZoneDirector • One 7111 adapter per room Internet

  23. Ease of Use • “intuitive and simple to configure thanks to its interactive and modern Web-based interface” • “Ruckus excels in simplicity with simple • navigation” • Range and Performance • “the best 802.11b/g coverage range we've tested” • “the only product to deliver astonishing speeds at extreme ranges where all others failed to even connect” • Simple Deployment • “ZoneFlex's key attraction for many businesses will be its ease of installation and management….a system that can be installed and configured in minutes” What’s Others Say About ZoneFlex

  24. Hospitality

  25. H O S P I T A L I T Y WiFi Solves Wired Problem • 802 guest rooms • 15 floors (12 guest) • 550,000 square feet • Located near LAX • Hotel designed to withhold direct hit from 747 • Poor wired network main driver for new WiFi network • Cat 5 backbone to closets, old-Cat 3 to rooms • Limited capacity to rooms (10-15 Mbps) • Recabling rooms a non starter (est. $480,000) • Low Guest Service Index scores hurting business • Building construction an RF challenge • Signal attenuation a concern • Huge coverage area • Three-wing configuration with long runs to guest rooms meant coverage challenges • WiFi solutions for entire hotel from Xirrus, Cisco, Colubris and TeleAdapt$120K and higher

  26. H O S P I T A L I T Y What was Done… Four ZoneFlex 2942s for each of the 12 guest room floors One at end of each wing one “meshed” in the middle 48 total aps, cost equals $35 per room. Redundant ZoneDirector1050 controllers Entire WLAN configuration in under 30 minutes Deployment in 18 hours (with 2 people)

  27. H O S P I T A L I T Y And the Results? Higher GSI scores Better performance than wired everywhere Overall WLAN less than ½ the cost of any other alternative Better reliability, “rock-solid WiFi connections” Video and voice ready, can now focus on rev-gen apps)
