Find out how RUCKUS helps educational grounds stay connected without annoying hiccups here.


In the ever-evolving digital age, school administrators face the Herculean task of providing students and faculty with reliable, fast, and secure network coverage. As educational institutions grapple with this modern-day conundrum, they will need a technological saviour of sorts—RUCKUS Cloud. This platform promises to revolutionise the way schools stay connected, transcending the limits of traditional networking infrastructure.

Powering the Future of Education With High-Capacity Connectivity Solutions

The educational landscape has experienced a seismic shift with the advent of high-bandwidth applications such as video streaming, online collaboration tools, e-sports, robotics and virtual reality. This digital metamorphosis has led to a surge in Wi-Fi-enabled devices, including laptops, smartphones, and tablets, flooding school campuses. Consequently, IT administrators face the daunting challenge of providing coverage and capacity for a large number of concurrent users generating immense data traffic across networks.

Powering the campus network with next-generation Wi-Fi and connectivity solutions can address this challenge to a certain degree, but not completely. That’s because having great connectivity is only half the battle won when it comes to establishing a great network. The other half involves a variety of different things, like ensuring the best user experience,  identifying issues immediately in order to resolve them and optimising the network to meet the needs of the campus.

This is where RUCKUS Cloud can help. RUCKUS Cloud is an Artificial Intelligence (AI)-enabled converged network management-as-a-service platform that enables IT teams to deliver exceptional user experiences—simply, seamlessly and easily.

Enabling High Performance and Easy Troubleshooting

Even the most high-powered networks are useless if you cannot configure them in such a way that they can provide the best user experience possible, optimise them to your needs and troubleshoot problems should they arise, at scale. RUCKUS Cloud can help you do all that, even with a lean IT team since it enables you to easily provision, manage optimise, and troubleshoot your high-performance network using either a single web dashboard or a native mobile application.

RUCKUS Cloud enables administrators to efficiently handle high-density environments, providing consistent coverage, capacity and high availability even for bandwidth-intensive applications, such as 4K/UHD video streaming and one-to-one Chromebook deployments. With an intuitive dashboard, RUCKUS Cloud allows seamless network management and monitoring, along with advanced features like SSID scheduling, rate limiting options, channel selection and access point grouping.

RUCKUS Cloud’s AI and patented machine-learning algorithms also give IT teams the troubleshooting tools to react quickly to issues and stop network anomalies from affecting service-level agreements. It even classifies issues by severity, so IT knows where to focus first, thus minimising unplanned downtime and ensuring that high performance is maintained.

Because a Great Network Needs Great Management

According to Gartner’s projections, networking services that offer functionalities beyond communication will be utilised by 50% of enterprise wireless endpoints by 2025, a significant increase from the current figure of less than 15%.

It is, thus, important to future-proof this network to ensure high performance and minimise any downtime. Adopting cloud technology, like Ruckus Cloud can help you do this, thereby providing students and faculty with a seamless online experience and fostering a connected learning environment.
