Interesting story about Ruckus multiple-antenna technology and Selina Lo, its CEO: The company changed its name as it introduced consumer-oriented hardware to shift its business away from competing in the commodity, already-overcrowded market of supplying consumer Wi-Fi MIMO add-on to video delivery. They’re already shipping devices to PCCW, the giant Hong Kong telecom provider.
The technology has to take off in the home, and it’s not compatible or interoperable with anything else. Still, it’s a great idea, and consumer buy odd technology if it works—and often when it doesn’t (viz., Atheros’s semi-abandoned Turbo dual-channel bonding mode).
Selina Lo is a hoot; I’ve interviewed her, and it’s always a pleasure to talk to someone that frank, although she freely acknowledges in this article she can offend people through her “rough” and “tough” attitude.
