Ruckus Introduces IoT Suite To Enable Secure IoT Access Networks
Ruckus Networks, a provider of wireless access networks, has released the Ruckus IoT Suite which enables organisations to readily construct a secure IoT access network that consolidates multiple physical-layer IoT networks into a single network. The IoT Suite improves time-to-return-on-investment and reduces deployment cost by allowing for the use of common infrastructure between the wireless local area network and the IoT access network.
The Ruckus IoT Suite consists of:
- IoT-ready access points (AP): APs that accommodate IoT modules to establish multi-standards wireless access for WiFi and non-WiFi IoT endpoints; and translate non-Internet protocol (IP) endpoint communications into IP.
- IoT modules: Radio or radio-and-sensor devices that connect to an IoT-ready AP to enable endpoint connectivity based on standards such as bluetooth low energy, Zigbee and LoRa protocols.
- SmartZone controller: A WLAN controller that provides a single management interface for both the WLAN and the IoT access network.
- IoT controller: A virtual controller, deployed in tandem with a SmartZone OS-based controller, that performs connectivity, device and security management functions for non-WiFi devices; facilitates endpoint coordination, and provides APIs for northbound integration with analytics software and IoT cloud services.
