Arris subsidiary Ruckus Networks announced that it was the company who deployed a high-performance Wi-Fi network at the International Media Center in Singapore for the US during the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea Summit held in Singapore on June 12, 2018.
In partnership with Singtel Group Enterprise, Ruckus Networks was selected to design and deploy the carrier-grade wired and wireless networks that provided connectivity for international and local news agencies for approximately 2,500 media professionals, covering the event from the International Media Center.
The International Media Center has an approximate space of 23,000 square meters, with about 2,000 workstations with TV screens streaming live coverage of media events. This high-density environment with terminals and numerous connected devices from the thousands of media professionals and supporting staff created a complex environment where a stable, high-performing and interference-free Wi-Fi network was a critical requirement.
The network included Ruckus R710 APs, working in conjunction with Ruckus ICX7150 switches, deployed in a stacked topology to minimize on cabling and to improve redundancy. The network was successfully designed and deployed in just eight days, delivering seamless network connectivity for attending media to deliver live broadcasts and recorded coverage of the event, Ruckus said.
