SINGAPORE: Ruckus Networks has announced the general availability of the Ruckus IoT Suite in Asia Pacific, which enables organisations to readily construct a secure IoT access network that consolidates multiple physical-layer IoT networks into a single network.
The Ruckus IoT Suite further speeds time-to-return-on-investment (ROI) and reduces deployment cost by allowing for the use of common infrastructure between the wireless local area network (WLAN) and the IoT access network.
Building a Consolidated IoT Access Network
An IoT access network must consolidate multiple access technologies while delivering the provisioning, management and security capabilities found in modern IP-based networks. Such a network must facilitate inter-endpoint communication and provide integration with analytics software and services.
The Ruckus IoT Suite consists of Ruckus IoT-ready access points, Ruckus IoT Modules, Ruckus SmartZone Controller and Ruckus IoT Controller.
Securing the IoT Access Network and IoT Endpoints
Security concerns top the list of factors that contribute to IoT solution deployment delays. The Ruckus IoT Suite addresses such concerns through a multi-layered approach, including digital certificates, traffic isolation, physical security and encryption.
Dennis Huang, Director, Product Marketing, Ruckus Networks said that the Suite is “geared to support the deployment of multi-vendor solutions that are constrained by today’s siloed, single-purpose IoT networks”.
