In the dynamic and fast-paced world of esports, the need for a robust, reliable, and high-performance network is paramount. As the industry continues to grow at an unprecedented rate, so does the demand for advanced networking solutions that can keep up with the increasing bandwidth requirements and the need for low-latency connections. This is where RUCKUS®, the leading provider of Purpose-Driven Networking, comes into action.

RUCKUS is at the forefront of delivering state-of-the-art networking solutions that address the unique needs of the esports industry. Our advanced technologies are designed to put your needs at the centre of our solution design and delivery.

Our partnership with British Esports, the national body for esports in the UK, established in 2016, strives to promote and enhance esports in the UK at a grassroots level. The organisation focuses on raising awareness, improving standards, and inspiring future talent. Partnered with industry giants like Dell, Intel and Alienware, British Esports offers a range of initiatives, including the Student Champs, the UK’s largest amateur grassroots esports tournament for students 12 and up. Its remarkable turnout for 2023/2024 from nearly 200 schools and colleges demonstrates the popularity of esports being implemented by educational institutions. Esports participation in the British Esports Student Champs is now also recognised as a ‘Skill’ as part of the Esports: Duke of Edinburgh Award. They also have the Women in Esports initiative, dedicated to forging a more diverse, fair and inclusive esports industry. The organisation collaborates with educational institutions to integrate esports into the curriculum, offering pioneering qualifications such as the Pearson National BTECs Level 2 and Level 3 in esports and Pearson Higher Nationals Level 4 and 5. College of Esports, British Esports’ exclusive university partner, provides Level 6 qualifications in esports. Esports education fosters leadership skills, teamwork, and critical thinking—preparing students for the evolving digital landscape while promoting a passion for learning.

British Esports and the Leadership Skills Foundation have also joined forces to craft a suite of Esports Leadership qualifications geared toward cultivating leadership abilities among young individuals in primary and secondary education. The National Esports Performance Campus in Sunderland serves as The Hub, featuring The Arena, The Place, and Gaming Houses. RUCKUS Networks is set to install its cutting-edge connectivity technology at British Esports’ prestigious National Esports Performance Campus. This campus, known for its excellence in both esports and education, serves as a multi-site complex and the headquarters of the national federation.
