Smart Access Control For Enterprise Wi-Fi Systems

Ruckus Wireless : 14 July, 2010  (New Product)
Ruckus Wireless has collaborated with Bradford Networks to provide improved security policy management on enterprise WLANs for better access control security
Ruckus Wireless, the smart mobile networking company, has teamed with Bradford Networks to combine Adaptive Network Security (ANS) capabilities with Ruckus ZoneFlex 'Smart Wi-Fi' products and technology.

Additionally, Bradford has joined the Ruckus Interoperability and Open Testing (RIOT) programme, a joint development and interoperability programme specifically to ensure seamless operation between third-party systems and Ruckus.

The combined, best-of-breed solution lets enterprise customers better protect their wireless LANs (WLANs) by setting policies for how different user groups such as employees, students and guests, are provided network access.

Bradford's ANS goes beyond traditional Network Access Control (NAC) tools. Based on pre-established policies, Bradford's ANS adapts to changing security needs by responding and securely provisioning network resources automatically. As part of this joint partnership, Ruckus ZoneFlex Smart Wi-Fi products have completed extensive interoperability testing with Bradford's Network Sentry.

"With Bradford, we're now bringing a complete set of user authentication, device compliance and secure access policy enforcement to an entirely new generation of smarter Wi-Fi systems," said Bart Burstein, vice president of product management and business development for Ruckus Wireless. "The combination of our technologies gives enterprises greater control and peace of mind when it comes to granting network access to guests and other users, and keeping critical information secure."

"Ruckus is a true innovator of WLAN technology that ensures reliable performance - even at great distances and through hard-to-penetrate surfaces," said David Yachnin, vice president of business development for Bradford Networks. "The integration of our Network Sentry solutions with Ruckus Smart Wi-Fi will be of tremendous benefit to customers whose demands for ease-of-use, superior performance and simplified security policy enforcement are now being met with our integrated solution."

The Ruckus ZoneFlex WLAN systems are built with Ruckus' patented dynamic beamforming, one of the newest breakthroughs in 802.11 technology that constantly forms and directs Wi-Fi signals over the best performing signal path, continually steering signals around obstacles and interference that can degrade performance. Dynamic beamforming uses constant client feedback built into the standard 802.11 protocol to ensure the fastest performing path is selected for each and every data packet. The result is an adaptive system that can automatically avoid interference, provide better performance at longer ranges, and dynamically adapt to environmental changes without any manual configuration or tuning.
