RUCKUS Networks delivers excellence to new premier student housing properties 


Due to exuberant growth rates at Texas A&M University and the University of Houston, top developers began breaking ground on new, furnished, luxury high-rise student housing located within walking distance of the campuses. These properties promised to deliver premier campus living options that would not only deliver best-in-class amenities, but Wi-Fi networks that wouldn’t quit. To deploy these unstoppable wired and wireless networks, the developers partnered with WireStar® Networks.

When deciding on which network switches and wireless access points (APs) to deploy for these new construction projects, WireStar’s choice was easy. “The property developers wanted us to use the gold standard for their network,” said Logan Roy, WireStar’s Director of Business Development. “And the gold standard is RUCKUS® Networks.”
