Voice&Data - - APP ALERT -

Ola Cabs has de­ployed a fast and re­li­able Ruckus Smart Wi-Fi net­work to im­prove and grow its cab net­work in In­dia. Ruckus Wire­less is now part of Bro­cade.

Ola Cabs is an on­line cab ag­gre­ga­tor, pro­vid­ing a range of cab ser­vices from econ­omy to lux­ury travel, and has a net­work of over 200,000 cars across 85 cities. As Ola Cabs con­tin­ued its growth in In­dia, it needed to en­sure it could on-board new cars as quickly as pos­si­ble at its at­tach­ment cen­tres. How­ever, Ola’s em­ploy­ees were ex­pe­ri­enc­ing con­nec­tiv­ity is­sues when try­ing to at­tach new cabs to the net­work us­ing the legacy 3G cel­lu­lar con­nec­tion.

Ola Cabs reached out to 3in IT So­lu­tions to find a so­lu­tion that of­fered the per­for­mance, se­cu­rity, ease of man­age­ment, cov­er­age and re­li­a­bil­ity re­quired to over­come the chal­lenges in the cab at­tach­ment process.

Proof-of-con­cept tests were con­ducted us­ing Ruckus Wire­less and a com­peti­tor’s wire­less ac­cess points (APs) to de­ter­mine which per­formed bet­ter in the out­door en­vi­ron­ment. Fol­low­ing the tests, Ola Cabs se­lected Ruckus Wire­less, which is now a part of tech­nol­ogy com­pany Bro­cade Com­mu­ni­ca­tions Sys­tems.

Ola Cabs has de­ployed Ruckus ZoneFlex T301 dual-band 802.11ac out­door APs across its out­door cab at­tach­ment ar­eas to sup­port all the staff us­ing tablets and lap­tops to log cab at­tach­ments. ZoneFlex T301 APs en­able fo­cused Wi-Fi cov­er­age in the most chal­leng­ing out­door en­vi­ron­ments by mit­i­gat­ing in­ter­fer­ence and pro­vid­ing un­matched ca­pac­ity and re­li­a­bil­ity, through the Ruckus patented BeamFlex tech­nol­ogy.

Ola Cabs has also de­ployed the Ruckus ZoneDirec­tor 1200 to cen­trally man­age its Wi-Fi net­work. The ZoneDirec­tor 1200 can be de­ployed and op­er­ated by non-wire­less ex­perts and in­stalled quickly and eas­ily. It has been specif­i­cally de­signed for SMEs with lim­ited IT staff and bud­get, en­abling them to cre­ate a ro­bust and se­cure mul­ti­me­dia WLAN in a mat­ter of min­utes.
