Ruckus Wireless releases new mobile Wi-Fi gateway for 3G to WiFi offloading

Ruckus Wireless has released its latest product, a mobile Wi-Fi gateway, to help mobile operators integrate Wi-Fi into their 3G and 4G networks. The new Wireless Services Gateway acts as a central point of control for “smart” Wi-Fi access points while enabling seamless service integration with the mobile core. The goal is to help mobile operators offload seamlessly more data traffic from 3G and 4G networks to Wi-Fi networks.

“What the Internet did to transform how we access content and services, the mobile Internet is now doing to liberate when and where we can get access,” said Selina Lo, president and CEO of Ruckus Wireless. “Wi-Fi is becoming an integral part of the mobile network fabric that enables this revolution. Its role in the mobile Internet ecosystem will endure as long as the appetite for access continues unabated, even with LTE becoming a reality,” said Lo.
