RUCKUS® networks connect smart cities—and the communities they serve

A RUCKUS network can connect the vast number of IoT devices and sensors that make a smart city more efficient, safe and livable. From traffic management to waste collection to air quality monitoring, super-connected smart cities can better manage quality-of-life issues that are endemic to all urban environments—reducing waste, cost and headaches for everyone.

As amazing as that is, it’s only the beginning. RUCKUS technologies provide enough coverage and bandwidth to connect much more than sensors. They can also carry traffic for critical city services like fire, police and EMS—and even be leveraged to provide public Wi-Fi access over a community network that covers a school, a neighborhood, a district or the entire city.

As municipalities work toward greater digital inclusion for residents, particularly those in underserved communities, RUCKUS Wi-Fi networks can help power equity as well as efficiency—and that’s just a smarter way to run a city.

RUCKUS networks power smart cities that better serve residents


Empowers smart city efficiencies

One of the most important functions of smart city technology is to maximize efficiency and responsiveness in the delivery of public services, whether it’s for traffic control, lighting sensors or the provisioning of vital utilities.

Helps to secure public funding for upgrades

When the COVID-19 lockdowns forced public institutions to close, federal help was offered through a number of grant programs intended to fund technology upgrades. RUCKUS Networks helps grant applicants successfully complete the complicated process to secure the funds they need to provide better digital access for all served communities.
