The Wi-Fi CERTIFIED Vantage™ 2 designation is given to devices that offer the best Wi-Fi experience in airports, stadiums, offices, campuses, retail locations and service provider-managed residential networks. Wi-Fi CERTIFIED Vantage 2 goes beyond the original designation by recognizing devices that deliver optimal performance and efficient use of the Wi-Fi spectrum and other network resources in dense deployments. Networks can take on additional clients without impacting already connected clients to deliver an optimal user experience for everyone. Wi-Fi CERTIFIED Vantage 2 will make a significant impact by providing the best Wi-Fi user experience in deployments with dense AP-to-client connections.
“Ruckus Networks is honored to have our outdoor access points be the first to receive this certification,” said Greg Beach, Vice President of Wireless Products, Ruckus. “This designation is a clear demonstration of Ruckus’ leadership and innovation in the Wi-Fi industry. We understand the need for this type of certification as we enter the next phase of the Wi-Fi industry, and we’re proud to be part of the process to bring Wi-Fi CERTIFIED Vantage 2 to the greater Wi-Fi community.”
Wi-Fi CERTIFIED Vantage 2 looks at four components: Wi-Fi CERTIFIED ac™, Wi-Fi CERTIFIED Passpoint®, Wi-Fi Agile Multiband and Wi-Fi Optimized Connectivity. Carrier customers have been asking for Wi-Fi Agile Multiband and Wi-Fi Optimized Connectivity because they allow them to offload clients to Wi-Fi to free up the cellular spectrum. With Wi-Fi Agile Multiband and Wi-Fi Optimized Connectivity, network capacity is increased to provide a higher quality of service and a better user experience with seamless roaming and secure connections. They allow more clients on the network without sacrificing additional performance or diminishing the user experience.
Ruckus has been collaborating in Wi-Fi Alliance on Wi-Fi Optimized Connectivity and Wi-Fi Agile Multiband. The company was involved with the original specification and testing, conformance events, and helped spearhead efforts to get the standard finalized and released. The standard demanded implementing complex protocols that required industry-wide collaboration.
