    After all, you might have requested it for your ill little brother or something.

    I'm still waiting for a dog I was told I could have, aren't I Simon? :P

    Edit: So as not to put CPLTD in a bad light, Ruckus was not purchased from Simon and this was simply a gesture of goodwill from him.

    If it helps, I have the report I wrote for my governors on my work server, I am happy to dig up the document and allow people to read it. It's fairly comprehensive, and covers the testing we did and signal range and how easy it is to scale up / down. When at work on Monday I will find it and attach it. Perhaps it can be the first comparison/review from an unbiased point of view?

    Now whilst I do like ruckus, remember the document was made when we were trying the equipment!

    Sound good to you guys?

    We have been using Aruba for several years but have now started to hit its limitations with large classes of laptops in one area.

    Iíve got Xirrus in next week to demo the kit and they are leaving use some units to trial.

    I would be very interested in reading this document before they arrive.

    I protested loudly ( ) that this was a Church school and no-one would do that and blamed it on the Post Office

    So she sent another one and I happened to be at the school when it arrived and I opened the box and got it out.

    At that point the head said- oh that's good we've got another one

    Turns out he'd opened the first package and half-inched it for his youngest and was now very happy another one had arrived so he could give it to his eldest because having one had caused "ruc(k)tions"

    The laugh is - it was delivered to my work address - which wasn't the school that actually bought the Ruckus kit

    I don't think so

    I think under LA rules we should all decline any freebies

    And since he insists that I go on the free 1/2 hour flight training in a real plane, - that we "won" by buying a new hall projector AV install - I won't be complaining

    regards

    Just to point out, the info regarding HP in that document is now pretty outdated. The new HP managed gear works in the same was as other managed systems. A central controller, and AP's hung off edge switches. The old HP stuff (before they bought Colubris) was pretty poor, it has to be said.

    Excellent report. Really helpful to see the various options and how they stood up to your testing.

    I've had Xirrus out to do a site survey in the past, and still need to contact Aggy to do a site survey with Ruckus kit. Unfortunately site wide wireless is on the back burner due to a lack of budget, but I'm hoping that with a good site survey we may be able to roll it out incrementally over the next few years in connection with a number of network upgrades that need to take place

    Well I think it's fair people benefit from my testing. My school is a nightmare for wireless and as the report shows, ruckus does the job
