Ruckus and Intersection combine to deliver free and sustainable connectivity to cities

Smart city projects such as LinkNYC improve civic services and help to engage citizens

Ruckus Wireless and urban experience company Intersection have joined forces with the aim of bringing free high-speed public wi-fi to city streets and transit hubs around the world.

 

The engagement announced at Mobile World Congress, taking place in Barcelona this week, delivers free, sustainable connectivity through the convergence of world-class wireless technology, digital services and a viable business model supported by advertising, the companies said.

 

“Ruckus has been a great partner in helping to build the fastest wi-fi networks on the planet,” said Colin O’Donnell, chief innovation officer, Intersection. “We’ve already seen success in New York and are gearing up to bring the fastest available wi-fi and digital innovation to new cities and communities around the world.”

 

Intersection, the lead company behind LinkNYC, develops cutting-edge platforms that offer services like free gigabit public wi-fi and context-aware content, which generates value for cities, citizens, and brands.

 

Ruckus’ technology enables connected devices and users on Intersection’s platform to receive a reliable, high-performance connection.

 

“We’re thrilled to partner with Intersection, which enables premier smart city projects like LinkNYC, one of the largest and fastest free public wi-fi network in the world, which will soon extend to London and cities across the United Kingdom,” said Dan Rabinovitsj, COO, Ruckus Wireless Business Unit, Brocade.

 

“The use of our smart wireless solutions, including carrier grade controllers, adaptive antenna technology and location based services, allows Intersection to continue to deliver more connected, seamless and human experiences across digital and physical worlds while also improving city operations.”
