SAO PAOLO—Accor SA has standardized on Ruckus Wireless Inc. Smart WiFi products and technology across 100 hotels in seven countries throughout Latin America.
The Ruckus Smart WiFi infrastructure will support Accor’s free WiFi available in brands such as ibis, ibis budget, Mercure, Novotel, Pullman and Sofitel. Accor initiated deployment of its Ruckus Smart WiFi networks last year, and has since completed installation of thousands of Ruckus ZoneFlex access points within these hotels.
Ruckus won the bid for this hospitality WiFi network deployment over competing bids from Cisco and HP.
