Ruckus Adds Policy Management; Buys Comability's IP

Doron Givoni
Director, Engineering
at Ruckus Wireless
Last week I mentioned Ruckus Wireless in a post about policy management for Wi-Fi networks (see "Smarter PCC Solutions Open the Door for Wi-Fi Charging" - here). We did not have to wait long to understand the sudden interest Ruckus shows in PCC.
Guy Grimland reports to The Marker that Ruckus is buying Comability’s intellectual properties (see "Policy Vendor ComAbility Closes Down"- here), which will be the foundation for its new R&D center in Israel. Comability focused on policy and subscriber management software for carriers Wi-Fi networks (covered - here).
According to the Comability's court assigned receiver, Yoav Kfir, at least 4 former Comability employees, including the CEO, Doron Givoni (pictured), are now employed by Ruckus. The company posted a couple of R&D jobs on Linkedin (here)
