Smart Wi-Fi Technology being used to Deliver Pervasive and Reliable Wireless Connectivity with Blazing Fast Performance to Troops and On-Site Personnel looking for access to IP-Based Voice, Video, and Social Media Internet Applications

SUNNYVALE, Calif. - Ruckus Wireless, Inc. (NYSE: RKUS) announced today that Boingo Wireless, the leading DAS and Wi-Fi provider that serves consumers, carriers and advertisers worldwide, is deploying thousands of its indoor and outdoor Smart Wi-Fi access points across dozens of United States Army, Air Force and Marine Corps bases.

The new Ruckus Smart Wi-Fi infrastructure is being deployed by Boingo to deliver reliable high-speed broadband Internet access for U.S. military service members stationed on the bases.  The Smart Wi-Fi equipment is being used to support a wide range of onsite, IP-based applications such as social networking, gaming, voice over IP (VoIP), and streaming online videos.

Boingo's managed wireless network design for military bases will utilize centrally managed Ruckus ZoneFlex™ 7372 and new ZoneFlex R300 dual-band Wi-Fi access points (APs), which include patented Smart Wi-Fi technology that extends the range and increases the reliability of signals in difficult environments.

"With myriad obstacles and thick concrete walls within a constantly changing environment, both indoors and out, military bases can be a challenging setting for delivering reliable high-speed wireless access," said Marc Patterson, vice president, product management for Boingo Wireless. "We found Ruckus Smart Wi-Fi technology to be ideally suited for tackling these challenges by providing extended Wi-Fi coverage and signals that adapt within these changing environments."

Boingo is currently deploying Ruckus Smart Wi-Fi technology at Marine Corps, Army and Air Force bases across the United States, with Boingo Broadband and IPTV service going live as each base installation is completed.

Boingo Wireless, Inc. (NASDAQ: WIFI) helps the world stay connected.  Our vast footprint of small cell networks cover more than a million DAS and Wi-Fi locations and reaches more than 1 billion consumers annually - in places as varied as airports, stadiums, universities, and military bases.
