| At Ruckus Wireless™, we've been designing, manufacturing, and marketing Smart Wi-Fi products and Smart Wireless LAN (WLAN) systems ever since we first opened our doors back in June of 2004. Our patented, universe-leading Wi-Fi technology was just one reason we were named a Technology Pioneer by the World Economic Forum. Privately-owned, we've had some $42 million invested in our company from some of the world's leading venture firms, including Sequoia Capital, Sutter Hill, T-Ventures, WK Technology Fund, and Motorola Ventures.|
We hang our company hat on our Smart Wi-Fi technology, which uses an intelligent, high-gain directional antenna system and quality of service technologies to extend the range of Wi-Fi signals and automatically adapt to environmental changes. This results in Wi-Fi that, for the first time, reaches farther and is inherently more reliable. Our Smart Wi-Fi technology steers signals around interference, obstructions, and obstacles, to ensure unprecedented coverage and consistent performance. We truly deliver on the promise of wireless-no strings attached.
Our products are sold through both direct and indirect channels. To date, over 1 million Ruckus Wi-Fi systems have been shipped, and over 1,000,000 access points equipped with our patented BeamFlex™ technology have been sold around the world. Our two flagship product lines include ZoneFlex™ Smart WLAN systems for enterprises, and MediaFlex™ Smart Wi-Fi products for service providers. ZoneFlex is the only centralized Smart WLAN system for enterprises that combines Smart Wi-Fi and Smart Mesh networking technology within a single, powerful, wallet-friendly solution. MediaFlex is the world's first carrier-grade Smart Wi-Fi system for reliable distribution of high-definition IP multicast services.
Enterprise customers include Maginet, Lodgian Hotels, Ninoy Aquino International Airport, Community Medical Center, Delta School District, Intercontinental Hotels, JW Marriott Shanghai, Sandals, BP, ADI Logistics, and various other companies, schools, hotels, hospitals, and manufacturing facilities. We have a large, diverse base of world-class service provider customers, including PCCW (Hong Kong), Belgacom (Belgium), Deutsche Telekom (Germany), Telefonica del Sur (Chile), Telecom Austria, SingTel (Singapore), TeliaSonera (Nordic), and many more.
Every day, we go up against the big guns in the wireless space. The Dell'Oro Group forecasts the worldwide WLAN market to reach $9 billion by 2011, with the enterprise segment representing over 32 percent of it. This market is being driven by the increasing popularity of Wi-Fi as a ubiquitous utility to support voice, video, digital signage, and other sophisticated uses. Today, the WLAN market is largely split between high-end WLAN switch suppliers and low-end consumer Wi-Fi companies. We're positioned to provide the best of both, with all the value, features, and functionality of high end systems in easy-to-use, affordable solutions.
