RIO DE JANEIRO – Ruckus’ president and CEO, Selina Lo, who has been chosen by RCR Wireless News as one of the Top 10 Women in Wireless for 2012. is on a mission to bring Wi-Fi connectivity to everyone and it is no different in Brazil. “Wi-Fi is on fire in Brazil,” Lo said in a video interview, held at this week’s Futurecom event.
Telecom operators in Brazil have major Wi-Fi projects going on and Lo showed optimism regarding future perspectives on using Wi-Fi to offload 3G and even LTE. During Futurecom, Ruckus announced a Wi-Fi project with Brazilian carrier Oi.
Lo also forecasted that over the next three years, Brazil will become one of the most critical markets for Ruckus.
