The platform is made up of a series of offerings, encompassing an AI-driven Assurance and Service Delivery Platform, a Network-as-a-Service (NaaS) solution, and a suite of converged networks set to empower channel partners with the tools to deliver comprehensive NaaS solutions to South African businesses.

The RUCKUS One™ platform is a cloud-native solution engineered to streamline network management. It integrates network assurance, service delivery, and business intelligence into a unified dashboard, simplifying the oversight of diverse network environments. The platform addresses the industry’s critical challenges, such as enhancing user experiences, resolving coverage and mobility issues, and alleviating the operational complexities IT organisations face.

“The demand for AI-driven converged solutions is unprecedented. RUCKUS One uniquely positions Westcon-Comstor and our channel partners to meet this demand, offering an all-encompassing solution for managing multi-access public and private networks,” says Reinette Grobler, Ruckus Channel Manager at Westcon-Comstor Southern Africa. “This suite of solutions not only accelerates business transformation by simplifying the implementation of complex networks but also empowers our partners to deliver tailored solutions that meet each customer’s unique needs.”

The multi-access public and private (MAPP) solution, a key component of the NaaS offering, simplifies the deployment and operation of networks. It supports a variety of technologies, including Wi-Fi, IoT, and wired, making it an ideal choice for businesses seeking to deploy networking solutions for smart manufacturing and other integrated applications. This approach ensures seamless integration with existing IP network infrastructures, enabling the application of uniform security, QoS, and roaming policies across different access technologies.

“Further enhancing our offering, the RUCKUS NaaS program introduces a new paradigm for consuming networking solutions and services on a subscription basis. This new partner model mitigates the need for significant upfront capital expenditures, offering a subscription-based approach that includes options for traditional leasing or complete hardware-as-a-service financing through CommScope® Financial Services. This flexibility allows businesses to leverage the expertise of RUCKUS and its extensive channel partner network for full or partial outsourcing of their lifecycle operations,” says Grobler.

The launch of the RUCKUS One platform and the NaaS and 4G/5G solutions signifies a significant step forward in networking technology. Soon to be offered globally, these solutions will be available from Westcon-Comstor, providing partners and their end-users with advanced, future-ready networking capabilities.
