CommScope Partners with Google to Bring Orion WiFi to Public Venues

CommScope’s RUCKUS SmartZone controller brings enhanced security and simplified network management

HICKORY, N.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--#CommScope--CommScope is partnering with Google’s Area 120 for the launch of Orion Wifi, a platform designed to bring private, secure roaming for consumers while helping public venues solve cellular dead zones and monetize their networks.


CommScope, a global network technology leader helping customers and partners to design, create and build the world’s most advanced communication networks, is announcing the RUCKUS SmartZone controller’s support of Google’s Orion Wifi, which lets carriers offer a friction-less and secure experience when connecting their subscribers to public Wi-Fi in venues.

“Carrier Wi-Fi offload in public venues can be frustrating for consumers and even more so for venue managers and owners as they negotiate rates and try to solve roaming costs between operators,” said Pramod Badjate, senior vice president for the RUCKUS business, CommScope. “Developing this new platform for Wi-Fi offload with Google helps create the lasting connections CommScope has always delivered to consumers while enabling companies to monetize and secure their networks.”

The RUCKUS SmartZone from CommScope supports Hotspot 2.0 enabling devices to automatically detect and then connect to the Wi-Fi network. In addition, RUCKUS SmartZone provides advanced security and support for RadSec.

“Orion Wifi is about more connectivity for consumers, more options for carriers, and more revenue and happier visitors for Wi-Fi network owners,” said Raj Gajwani, Director at Google's Area 120. “CommScope's RUCKUS SmartZone allows venues to easily configure Orion Wifi with the highest levels of security.”
