You Broadband deploys Ruckus' managed Wi-Fi service

MUMBAI: Broadband service provider, You Broadband, has deployed Ruckus Wireless‘ managed Wi-Fi service offering within Mumbai‘s international airport.

Ruckus Wireless, the supplier of wireless systems for the mobile networking market, said Monday You Broadband has selected its ZoneFlexT 802.11n system as a managed Wi-Fi service offering within Mumbai‘s Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport (CSIA), operated by Mumbai International Airport (MIAL).

YOU Broadband has installed Ruckus ZoneFlex 7300 series 802.11n smart Wi-Fi access points throughout CSIA‘s international and domestic terminals and is initially offering free multimegabit Wi-Fi services.
The Ruckus Wireless network, within CSIA, is managed by redundant ZoneDirector 3100 smart WLAN controllers located at You Broadband‘s network operations centre.

FlexMaster, a system-wide Wi-Fi services management platform developed by Ruckus, is also being used for gathering user‘s statistics, monitoring network traffic, generating trending information and remote diagnostics and troubleshooting.

You Broadband is leveraging Wi-Fi within CSIA to offer mobile gaming, free Internet access and ultimately video on demand services to airport visitors.  
You Broadband plans to partner with device makers and content providers to offer value-added content services over Wi-Fi. The vast Wi-Fi network will also be available to support airport operation applications as well as airport vendors requiring network connectivity.

According to an official communiqué, since launching the service in April, You Broadband has seen a big spike in wireless usage to nearly 3,000 connections per day with 50 per cent of users staying online for 30 minutes or more.

Said You Broadband MD and CEO EVS Chakravarthy, "What we have done at Chhatrapati Shivaji is simply a harbinger of things to come. Changing market conditions, driven by an explosion of data traffic from wireless-only devices, present a new paradigm for fixed-line service providers and huge opportunities to offer new services and increase ARPU."
