Deutsche Telekom AG, the venture capital division of Motorola Inc. T-Online Venture Fund will invest $16 million in Ruckus Wireless Inc., a wireless equipment manufacturer that designed Wi-Fi routers that can beam various forms of media around the home.

The new financing addition will increase total investment in Ruckus Wireless to $30 million. Other investors include Sequoia Capital, Sutter Hill Ventures, Investor AB and WK Technology Fund. California-based Rukus said it will use the financing to increase its current production levels, operations and sales and marketing worldwide.

“New broadband digital services are driving the requirements for next generation home networks,” said Selina Lo president and CEO of Ruckus Wireless.

The company’s MediaFlex wireless router addresses the Wi-Fi equipment shortcomings which make it hard to transmit live TV and radio around the home or work place. The router is then plugged into a set-top box provided by the phone company. It then beams a signal to a laptop or PC with Wi-Fi facilitities.

“We found Ruckus Wireless to be the only solution provider to have truly addressed the problem of moving multimedia around the home without new wiring,” said Petra Buchholz, fund manager for T-Online Venture Fund.
