Higher education

What makes a college campus “smart”? A smart campus uses the internet of things (IoT) to link devices, applications, locations and people to enhance and enable new services while improving operational efficiency.

It starts with reliable wired, wireless and mobile connectivity everywhere on campus, indoors and out. At CommScope, we understand that ubiquitous connectivity is just the beginning. By sharing a common technology enabled by our Ruckus Smart Campus solutions, campus IT infrastructure and disparate operational systems can interact to transform student living, learning and safety.

RUCKUS outperforms others in an independently-validated Wi-Fi stress test.
