Having Trouble with WLAN Performance and Setup? There’s an App for That

Ruckus Wireless Mobile WiFi App

Ruckus Wireless Mobile WiFi AppRuckus Wireless has released four new Smart Wi-Fi mobile applications for systems integrators, value-added resellers and network administrators working to optimize their wireless LANs. The four applications address different aspects of Wi-Fi performance but all target the difficulty in optimizing Wi-Fi coverage and performance. Rob Mustarde, VP of Marketing for Ruckus Wireless says “We wanted to radically simplify this process with tools that are intuitive to use and understand, and which offer a compelling value in the data they deliver.”

The four applications Speed Flex, S.W.A.T., Zapper, and ZD Remote are all available for free on the Apple iTunes App Store as well as other online outlets. The apps help network administrators to best determine setup and access point locations to deliver the best coverage possible. The apps also allow for product and performance comparisons between Ruckus and 3rd party competing solutions. Per a Ruckus press release here are outlines of each of the new Smart Wi-Fi mobile applications.


S.W.A.T. is a wireless assessment tool for performance testing, and site survey companion to Ruckus SpeedFlex. This easy to use Ruckus app gives users a simple way to collect comprehensive site performance data. It can be used to validate the performance of an existing installation, or assist in planning a new site deployment.


Zapper is a real time performance analysis tool. Built on the open source ZAP wireless library, this application lets users test the performance of an existing network, validate APs, and perform competitive testing to help make accurate comparisons.


For iOS and Android users, SpeedFlex is a wireless throughput performance-testing tool based on the Ruckus open source performance test tool that gives users a simple, easy way to collect site performance data. This throughput based analysis tool can be used to validate the performance of an existing installation, or assist in planning a new site deployment.
