Nasdaq-listed Arris International on Monday completed the acquisition of the Ruckus Wireless and ICX Switch business from Broadcom Limited.

With this acquisition, Arris builds on a leadership position in networking and entertainment for service providers while expanding into new enterprise and vertical markets.

The deal strategically positions Arris for a new phase of growth by leveraging the companies' combined technology assets to enable next-generation wireless and wired networks.

The Ruckus target vertical markets span hospitality, education, government, service providers, multi-dwelling / tenant units, sports / entertainment venues, and transportation centers.

Additionally, Ruckus' trailblazing leadership in the small-cell CBRS LTE market represents an opportunity to deploy converged Wi-Fi and LTE using common cloud-based control and management capabilities.

The business will focus on the delivery of innovative, high-performance wireless and wired network infrastructure, with a robust channel-led sales strategy.

Arris Enterprise Networks President  Rabinovitsj said  the new  combination underscores the company's shared vision of achieving market leadership across wireless and wired networks in close partnership with valued customers and channel partners

"We're very excited about the collaboration opportunities across our product portfolios to enable connectivity from the office to the home and to all the places in between. Joining Arris means we still do what Ruckus does best, but on a larger, global scale. I'm excited to lead the Ruckus Networks team into our next stage of growth and innovation," Rabinovitsj.
