Location-based Wi-Fi services can add immediate value to Wi-Fi deployments

Marcus Burton, Technical marketing manager, Ruckus Wireless | Oct. 11, 2013
Think of Wi-Fi location as indoor GPS. Wi-Fi-based positioning systems are used where GPS is inadequate due (typically) to signal blockage.

In the very near future, expect Wi-Fi to provide much more than Internet access.  As the trend matures and users see a value, they will begin looking for site/venue-specific apps on arrival. Initial efforts may be an exercise in trial-and-error (on the border of clumsy), but as network implementers find their stride, location solutions will benefit everyone. When it's done right, both users and network operators gain value.

You want value from your Wi-Fi solution? Location services are a great place to find it.  And if it's not already, put this topic on your radar. Location may be the next place to be.
