Looking to Improve Your Home Wi-Fi in the Bay Area?
Wi-Fi is nearly as essential to our modern lifestyles as electricity, even more commonplace than cable and landline phones. That may sound dramatic, but many of us wouldn’t be able to work or communicate without it.
But oddly, where many people would immediately fix problems with household appliances and systems, we let our Wi-Fi run poorly for months, even years. If you’re struggling to get a signal in certain areas of your home, experiencing dropped or slow connections, or having to restart your router over and over—why haven’t you upgraded your home networking yet?
With more wireless devices in your home, you’re generating larger volumes of traffic. If you have phones, TVs, speakers, computers, and smart devices connecting to your Wi-Fi, you could benefit from a Ruckus home networking system.
But what is Ruckus, and why is it better than your existing router? Find out below to see how Ruckus can help your Bay Area home.
What Is Ruckus Networks?
Ruckus manufactures wired and wireless networking equipment for a superior internet experience. Businesses of all sizes use Ruckus Networks to keep their staff and visitors connected. But we also see homeowners—especially those with larger properties—greatly benefitting from switching to Ruckus. Ruckus access points and devices can all be controlled with a smart wireless controller, making this the ‘smartest’ Wi-Fi option on the market.
Why is Ruckus Better?
It Extends Your Coverage
With a network of Ruckus access points, you’ll extend Wi-Fi coverage to every corner of your property. Ruckus’ adaptive antennas, found in the BeamFlex system, direct signals in the best path to your receiving devices. The BeamFlex configures and reconfigures antenna patterns to reach focused coverage in any direction. So, if you have multiple floors, an L-shaped home, or walls and furniture blocking your wireless signal, Ruckus will help.
And what if you want to take your home office or workout videos outdoors? The Ruckus ZoneFlex outdoor access points combine adaptive antenna technology and meshing for fast and reliable outdoor performance. The ZoneFlex is built to withstand the harshest conditions, so through the cold and rain, your Wi-Fi will still thrive. If Ethernet cabling isn’t available, outdoor access points can mesh with indoor access points and use the same smart controller.
It Provides Better Throughput & Speed
Range is important, but just as crucial is good throughput. Also known as transfer rate, throughput is the amount of data moved successfully from one place to another, measured in bits per second (bps).
Ruckus’ BeamFlex is a custom antenna array that selects the best antenna pattern for each user. It increases the signal quality for higher data throughput, so you can download more files, stream more media, and video chat across your property without freezing and endless loading screens.
It Offers Smooth Transitions Between Access Points
If you’re moving across your property while using Wi-Fi, you don’t want to temporarily lose connection as you transfer from one access point to another. With Ruckus, the transition will be unnoticeable, switching at lighting speeds. Changing to the outdoor access point will be seamless, too, so your video call won’t stop and start again.
It Blocks Interference from Neighbors
When multiple Wi-Fi networks are on the same channel in close proximity, they interfere with each other. If you live downtown or in a densely populated neighborhood in the Bay Area, there are probably many networks around you. Luckily, Ruckus antennas adjust to neighboring networks, creating an undisturbed signal.
