Ruckus wireless



  • tl;dr What has your experience been with Ruckus wireless?

    So my company is partnered with Watchguard, Lenovo and Ruckus wireless. I personally despise Lenovo as do most of you. The reason that we HAVE to be partnered with Lenovo is because there are one of the few approved vendors listed for the State of New Jersey. In order to support some of the municipalities that we have contracts with, we HAVE to provide them with these products as each vendor Dell, Cisco, etc have the maximum number of verified partners. Now, I have experience with Watchguard and Lenovo--good or bad, but I have never used Ruckus wireless. Have any of you had any experience with them? Any input would be greatly appreciated.



  • I don't have experience with them but one of our campuses has all Rukus wireless gear. They seem to be happy with them.
    Since I'm not a sys admin anymore, I don't have anything to do with supporting it ☺ yay me.



  • We used to use it in all our schools 'til we moved to Ubiquiti.

    Performance is great, I'm not keen on the management interface but it's still very usable.

    We didn't do any config more than creating the wireless network and plugging them in, apart from a few mesh setups. But we had many very high traffic wireless networks running perfectly happy for years completely untouched anyway.

    Same here. Our Campus is full Ruckus. The datacenter guys are happy AFAIK.
