Ruckus Wireless unveiled a family of four new Smart Wi-Fi mobile applications to provide system integrators, value-added resellers and network administrators with real-time Wi-Fi performance analysis of Ruckus and third party access points.
- SpeedFlex, designed for iOS and Android users, is a wireless throughput performance-testing tool that gives users a simple, easy way to collect site performance data. It captures real-time throughput (uplink/downlink), packet loss and site data, and lets users take pictures and send an email with the results packaged in a PDF file.
- S.W.A.T. is a wireless assessment tool for performance testing, and site survey companion to Ruckus SpeedFlex. It can be used to validate the performance of an existing installation, or assist in planning a new site deployment.
- Zapper, built on the open source ZAP wireless library, is a real time performance analysis tool that lets users test the performance of an existing network, validate APs, and perform competitive testing to help make accurate comparisons.
- ZD Remote is designed for use with the Apple iPad, for users of the Ruckus ZoneDirector management appliance. ZD Remote offers real-time monitoring of Ruckus Smart WLANs to provide stats, dashboard widgets, client details and live logs. The company has plans to add ZoneDirector configuration controls to ZD Remote, allowing administrators to quickly and easily manage their Ruckus WLAN environments.
