Deep Blue Communications, a provider of managed Wi-Fi services to hospitality and retail clients, plans to use Ruckus' (RKUS +5.5%) SmartCell Gateway 200 Wi-Fi controllers to offer services that can be managed through a cloud-based platform.

Deep Blue, whose clients include hotel chains such as Hyatt, Marriott, and Best Western, likes the ability of Ruckus' controllers to support multiple customers and tens of thousands of Ruckus access points, and to offer clients a "discrete view of their infrastructure through a custom portal."

Shares are at levels last seen in January. They moved higher last month following a Q4 beat.
