The top three issues facing business & carriers worldwide are capacity constraints, interference & poor connectivity.
Businesses are grappling with the same mobile Internet explosion that is challenging mobile operators worldwide. It could be argued even more so because a majority of Wi-Fi use takes place indoors during working hours.
More users, devices, IP video and data traffic are hitting wireless networks and driving new capacity and reliability requirements. With the growth of Wi-Fi devices and users, conventional Wi-Fi technology is unable to cope with increasing interference in the unlicensed RF spectrum. Continue reading →
ABC News is reporting that the CSIRO has achieved a legal settlement of over $220 million from companies that were infringing on it’s patents over Wireless LAN (WiFi) technology, bringing the total earnt from settlements and licencing to almost $430 million.
CSIRO invented and patented wireless LAN technology in the 1990s. CSIRO inventors Dr John O’Sullivan, Dr Terry Percival, Mr Diet Ostry, Mr Graham Daniels and Mr John Deane created this technology while working in the CSIRO Division of Radiophysics, now called the CSIRO ICT Centre.

The number of mobile wireless data transfer capable devices is growing at a cracking pace with 7.6 billion mobile users expected by 2020 and the number of venues offering wireless hotspots will be over a million by 2015.
However if Ruckus Wireless has anything to do it with it these access points won’t be slow, overloaded and unreliable like they often are now.
Ruckus Wireless has been designing, manufacturing, and marketing Smart Wi-Fi products and Smart Wireless LAN (WLAN) systems since mid-2004.
Their patented, world-leading Wi-Fi technology was 1 reason why they were named a Technology Pioneer by the World Economic Forum.
Privately-owned, Ruckus Wireless has had $51 million invested in it by some of the world’s leading venture firms, including Sequoia Capital, Sutter Hill, T-Ventures, Investor AB, Focus Ventures, and Motorola Ventures.
The main claim to fame by Ruckus is about their patented Smart Wi-Fi technology and its unique ability to support streaming multicast IP video over the 802.11 standard protocol. This adaptive antenna technology leverages high-gain directional array technology and best path selection algorithms to form and direct Wi-Fi signals over the best performing paths to each and every client.
With this technology, they’ve been able to do something that other Wi-Fi companies can’t – deliver longer range and more reliable Wi-Fi connections to client devices. Wi-Fi that reaches farther and is inherently more stable due to the adaptive nature and control of their proprietary technology.
Smart Wi-Fi constantly steers signals around obstructions and obstacles, mitigates interference, and focuses RF energy ONLY where it’s needed to ensure unprecedented coverage and consistent performance at longer ranges.
