Pimpin [Wi-Fi] Ain't Easy

Pimpin [Wi-Fi] Ain't Easy

By CWNP On 10/14/2009 - 12 Comments

CWNP is on the road again, this time we’re mixing it up with Ruckus Wireless.  We’re out to save the world—several major US cities, at least—of boredom by offering some free Wi-Fi training, cool product demos, free food, handouts, and some wicked prize drawings.  If you don’t already know their corporate personality, Ruckus Wireless has what might be labeled “artistic moxie” when it comes to marketing and corporate culture.  They’re the antithesis of the stuffy, conventional, humorless corporation, which is just one of the reasons why they continue to succeed in Wi-Fi… it’s also why our roadshow is titled “Pimp My Wi-Fi.” 

GT Hill (CWNE #21) is taking the mic for CWNP’s educational presentation, teaching us all about some of the latest and greatest technologies relating to 802.11n and network optimization.  In my experience, GT is a down-to-earth instructor who can take the technical goods that turn your mind into mush and translate them into something palatable for the rest of us.  He brings many years of wireless experience, from running a wireless ISP to doing WLAN consulting, to bear in the classroom.  As a confession, GT and I collaborate on many things wireless via Skype.  Unfortunately, I usually leave the conversation with a sense that my IQ is lower than I thought. 

A Ruckus team will also be present to demonstrate the unique solution that they offer to the Wi-Fi market.  I’ve had a fair amount of hands-on with their gear and, given what they have to work with, the demos shouldn’t disappoint.  Among other things, I’ve seen their HD Video over Wi-Fi in action with pleasurable results.  They’ve added a few new features to the spec sheet in recent months that will likely make an appearance, and I imagine that a glimpse of the fabulous interface should be in order as well.  Similar to their website—see a review here—their GUI is top notch. 

Take a half-day to come see the show in your area.  We’d love to meet you.  Heck, you might even win a scooter!
