Oracle Team USA will use Ruckus Wireless as its official wi-fi technology supplier in the upcoming American Cup, Oracle announced on 22 August.
The defender of the 34th American Cup, Oracle Team USA will equip its state-of-the-art sail boat with high speed wi-fi technology patented by wireless systems provider Ruckus.
The technology will be used to transmit critical telemetry, wind and load data to allow the crew to make swift real-time adjustments thus enhancing performance, the company said.
Ruckus was chosen due to the inability of traditional wireless to deliver, director of information systems at Oracle Team USA Asim Khan said.
Oracle Team USA will be able to assess crucial race performance information with the backhaul of gigabytes of data from the Ruckus technology.
