Ruckus goes after small business with app-managed Xclaim Wi-Fi

Stephen Lawson | Oct. 30, 2014
As small businesses make their Wi-Fi more enterprise-like, Ruckus Wireless wants to meet them where they live with that hallmark of consumer tech, the mobile app.

The other two models out on Wednesday use the latest form of Wi-Fi, 802.11ac, for a top speed of more than 1Gbps. The Xi-3 is an indoor AP, priced at $199, and the Xo-1 is an outdoor unit for $299.

All the units have several features that aren't included in most consumer-grade Wi-Fi products. Among other things, the Xclaim APs can automatically give priority to delay-sensitive traffic such as voice calls and video, dynamically select the least crowded radio channels based on long-term trends, and prevent devices with older, slower Wi-Fi from keeping other users waiting.
