Our new Ruckus kit has just arrived Exciting stuff! (Cheers Simon, again!)
What do we do now?
Just planning the best way to roll it out... Will it coexist with our current wireless ("domestic" access points) so we can do it gradually, or is it better to wait till half term and do a "big bang"?
We literally have opened the box, grinned, then closed the box again as we've got a few other jobs on at the mo

I can't see how anyone could leave goodies boxed up. I'd have them opened and all over the place.
Perhaps I'm still a child thinking every parcel is a Christmas present.
When we got ours, I took it out, plugged it in, played with it for 20 minutes and realised I was finished... put a few access points in classrooms and told select staff about it for testing, then put the 2 trolleys on after school a couple of days later.
Never had any issues since!

Ruckus rocks. We had the guys from Net-Ctrl do a survey and demo for us. Bought some POE's and lobbed the units where needed. Took us about a week to get it all up and another to tweak the layout.
An in-the-shower-thinking-moment this morning: how directional are the access points? are they best laid on their backs or hung on a wall - if they are hung on a wall do they get a "blind spot" behind them?
Hung from the ceiling is best.

You've got Ruckus and your not staying overnight to get it working
You do know what you've bought don't youAn in-the-shower-thinking-moment this morning: how directional are the access points? are they best laid on their backs or hung on a wall - if they are hung on a wall do they get a "blind spot" behind them?
A Ruckus AP signal will go through 5 miles of bedrock even enclosed in a lead box
Hung on the ceiling is best, provided you have the infrastructure to cope, failing that on the back of a wall where the wall is facing the outside.
Get it open and setup!! ... You can configure the netbooks to use the ruckus to test it.
Even Joe at CP said it was so easy even HE could get it working.

Wonder if CP can answer a question regarding the Ruckus AP's
What are their operating temperatures? Are the comfortable at exposed and constant 2-3c, and are they comfortable at a constant -14 to -17c? Indoors naturally, just in chilled and freezer environments.
But In a freezer you will get condensation which will kill the indoor units, so you will need the 2741 (-20c to +65c) or 7762 (-40c to +65c) depending on if you need bg or dual band 11n?
I hope that helps
