Ruckus Wireless logoRuckus Wireless has launched a line of SOHO / SMB access points.

Ruckus has created the Xclaim Wireless brand to market a line of "disruptively priced, cloud-ready, controller-free" access points designed for smaller installations that don’t have IT staff. The line includes three indoor APs (selectable N300, N600 and AC1200) and one outdoor AP (AC1200).

Enterprise Wi-Fi features such as dynamic channel selection, band steering, client isolation and airtime fairness all come standard in Xclaim APs. The access points are managed
by the free Harmony mobile app for iOS and Android, which handles configuration and ongoing monitoring.
