Ruckus Wireless(TM) announced that it was selected to supply advanced, Smart Wi-Fi products and technology for the Queen Mary, one of the world's most historic ships, now permanently docked and serving as a luxury hotel and convention center in Long Beach, California.

Hotel Internet Services (HIS) and Queen Mary IT staff have selected and deployed Ruckus ZoneFlex Smart wireless LAN (WLAN) products, enabling wireless connectivity from any of the hotel's guestrooms and common areas in order to support the ship's more than three million yearly visitors.

The information technology teams tested and ultimately chose Ruckus Wireless products and technology due to its unique ability to extend signal range and overcome wireless challenges such as RF interference and impenetrable obstacles. Previously, metallic walls and other unfriendly RF obstacles on the Queen Mary made the deployment of Wi-Fi effectively impossible.
