Ruckus announced it has outperformed four of its leading Wi-Fi competitors in a series of stress tests validated by Divergent Dynamics. Using mid-range 802.11ac access points (APs), the testing measured each AP’s ability to simultaneously deliver video and data to 60 client devices. The results showed that the Ruckus R610 AP was the only tested AP able to maintain stall-free video delivery to each client when data traffic loading was simultaneously applied to the network.
“The tests were conducted in a real-world, high client-density environment and carried out using industry best practices and each manufacturer’s recommendations,” said Devin Akin, founder and CEO of Divergent Dynamics. “In this environment, Ruckus APs delivered consistent stall-free video, outperforming five APs from four manufacturers, including two APs with higher performance specifications. The R610 was the only AP to meet real-world relevant test objectives and was nothing short of impressive.”
Video in the Enterprise
Video accounts for the majority of worldwide IP traffic volume and is growing rapidly in the enterprise and on mobile devices. According to the latest Cisco Visual Networking Index*, global IP video traffic will grow threefold from 2016 to 2021, a CAGR of 26 percent, while increased adoption of advanced video communications in the enterprise segment will cause business IP traffic to grow by a factor of three between 2016 and 2021.
