In September, Time Warner Cable announced it was spending $ 15 million on its Wi-Fi network in Los Angeles. TW Cable is also using gear from BelAir Networks, now part of Ericsson, in L.A. and in an earlier Wi-Fi deployment in New York City.

Time Warner Cable will deploy dual-band, outdoor, strand-mounted Wi-Fi access points that integrate a DOCSIS 3.0 cable modem for backhauling Wi-Fi traffic over Time Warner Cable’s existing cable plant. It will provide WiFi for high-capacity indoor public venues, such as arenas. Ruckus uses an adaptive antenna array, which extends range, and ChannelFly, a feature that automates which channel an access point uses based on available capacity.

Arris Group, a Ruckus reseller, will help Ruckus with fulfillment and systems integration. Ruckus Wireless claims it has shipped more than 3 million Wi-Fi systems to date to 12,000 customers. The 500-employee firm has raised $ 75 million in funding from Motorola Mobility, Meritech Capital Partners, Sequoia Capital, SingTel, Focus Ventures, Sutter Hill, T-Ventures, Telus Ventures and Firelake Capital.
