Ruckus Networks is joining Facebook's Express Wi-Fi Certified ecosystem, a programme that allows access point manufacturers to build Wi-Fi hardware compatible with Express Wi-Fi.
The company announced this in a Media OutReach-forwarded statement on Tuesday.
Operators participating in Facebook's Express Wi-Fi initiative will deploy the Ruckus virtual SmartZone™ controllers and certified indoor/outdoor Wi-Fi access points in high-traffic public areas in Africa, India, and Indonesia.
Ruckus products are currently deployed in Express Wi-Fi installations in Tanzania, Nigeria, and other developing nations.
"We are excited to be a partner in Facebook's Express Wi-Fi Certified program," said Ian Whiting, President, Ruckus Networks.
