Ruckus Wireless says that Chongqing Telecom, a unit of China Telecom, has selected its Smart Wi-Fi products and technology for a large-scale, citywide deployment of Wi-Fi hotspots supporting a new service called Tianyi Broadband.

Tianyi Broadband is a user-centric solution that bundles wired broadband, Wi-Fi and CDMA 3G in the same package, which allows users to connect to China Telecom’s services through a single account. Services include email, SMS, a chat service, streaming music and video streaming.

Chongqing Telecom has now deployed over 4,000 Ruckus ZoneFlex indoor and outdoor Smart Wi-Fi access points (APs) along with ZoneDirector WLAN controllers across the city. The APs cover hundreds of hot zones within five districts and have been installed in a wide range of locations spanning from universities to restaurants, office buildings to shopping centers and public venues.

Situated in southwestern mainland China with a population of 31 million people and covering 31,800 square miles, Chongqing is one of four direct-controlled municipalities by the People’s Republic of China – the largest province in China.
