To eliminate the difficulties operators are experiencing with building and managing large scale WLAN networks and integrating them into the mobile packet core, the Ruckus SmartCell Gateway (SCG 200) is the first in a new category of scalable and versatile WLAN controllers with 3GPP compatible WLAN gateway functionality. The SCG 200 is capable of supporting tens of thousands of Ruckus or non-Ruckus Wi-Fi access points, hundreds of thousands of subscribers, and in excess of 20 Gbps of throughput. WLAN controller and WLAN gateway functionality is integrated into a single compact platform and managed as a single entity, which reduces the number of boxes that must be deployed and managed. This approach reduces CAPEX and the cost of on-going operations. The WLAN controller function can also be split out from the WLAN gateway function and run on separate platforms. The WLAN controller can also interoperate with WLAN gateways from 3rd party suppliers, which provides the network operator with a great deal of deployment flexibility.
