a manufacturer of advanced "smart" Wi-Fi technology and wireless LAN (WLAN) systems used by enterprises and carriers, has launched a new Ruckus WiSE Guy (Wi-Fi Solutions Engineer) Smart Wi-Fi certification program.
According to the company, this new program is designed to help channel partners, integrators and end users to handle indoor and outdoor wireless deployments using patented dynamic beam forming Wi-Fi technology. It ensures that candidates have necessary knowledge and skills to design, deploy, manage, and support wireless networks with Ruckus ZoneFlex products.
It is designed to enable Ruckus BIG DOG Partners and network administrators to differentiate themselves by proving their proficiency in deploying next generation, reliable Ruckus Smart WLAN systems.
"In a short period of time, Ruckus has established a following for delivering carrier-quality Wi-Fi products and world class support services that go along with it," said Kyung Yi, vice president of Customer Advocacy at Ruckus Wireless (News
