    Who has Ruckus?

    We are planning on installing a new wireless network, and currently looking at Meru and Ruckas. Having a look on here and now we have the pricing, Ruckus seems to be well in in front. We are preparing to go to governors next week and my LM (and myself) would really like to speak to a school who has a Ruckus system and get their opinion on the system.

    So who has a Ruckus Wireless Network?

    Not here but have had it purchased and installed in about 9 different establishments. I am also advising an Australian AFL team on helping them with their install. What do you want to know?

    I do. I like it. Thing is, i only really have my old HP system to compare it to and i hated that.

    A small Ruckus setup saw me through a difficult time at a temporary building. I now have 21 AP's. 3 WLANS....guest, Internal and 802.1 something something...

    Has ticked over beautifully for a couple of years now. *touches all the wood and prays to dieties*

    Yep i have a ruckus system and its great. For the price you cant go wrong. Its a case of stick it in, configure it and forget about it. It just works.

    Have just gone from an HP school to a Ruckus one and can second that sentiment! The HP hardware is fine but the controller is unbelievably bad. Ruckus is beautifully laid out and simple in comparison.

    Have you considered Uquiqit Unifi - will beat ruckus on price hands down and the performance is on a par - in one school we are ripping ruckus out due to ongoing costs and putting unifi in.

    Well don't you have to pay that for most things? Support isn't free.
