There’s no doubt about it. WiFi is the new black.

California-based, NYSE-listed wireless systems company Ruckus Wireless is betting that the rate of Wi-Fi infrastructure development Africa will continue to rise.

In the latest instalment of African Tech Conversations, Andile Masuku chats with the adrenaline-junkie that is Michael Fletcher — who has overseen Ruckus Wireless’ operations and new business development on the continent since 2010.

In a career spanning 23 years, Michael has helped establish new businesses, penetrate new markets, and managed sales teams for companies like Motorola, Workz, Belkin and of course Ruckus.
