Ruckus Wireless delivers virtual data plane for Wi-Fi

Ruckus Wireless, Inc. (NYSE: RKUS) said it has shipped a new industry-first virtual data plane for Wi-Fi that segregates data traffic from control traffic on large wireless networks.

Carriers and enterprises will now have maximum flexibility in network deployments, installing multiple data flow managers across a distributed network to help optimize cost and performance based on user demands.

The new software — called Virtual SmartZoneâ„¢ Data Plane (vSZ-D) — works with Ruckus´ Virtual SmartZone controllers, which provide a software-based system for managing wireless networks.

Virtual SmartZone Data Plane provides a flexible, cost-effective approach to aggregate and tunnel end-user data for specific application or security policy needs.

Ruckus Wireless delivers wireless for more than 61,000 enterprise, service provider, government and small business customers worldwide.
