We primarily offer Ruckus however will and can supply meru if requested. We favour Ruckus due to its ease of use, flexibility, cost effectiveness and most importantly reliability. We are mainly Education based and feel Ruckus fits the bill perfectly for this sector. You are not paying for bells and whistles that are not required.
Hope that helps.

BSF brought its own baggage, and prevented transparency.

D) underlying network issues that are masked by sheer speed of the wired connections of your desktops.
E) the fact the MSP didn't buy support from the hardware vendors, instead believing that they could do the job alone- leaving the school on outdated firmware
F) change control getting in the way of troubleshooting.

The school I was at didn't get a managed service. The facts are that a working Ruckus system with about 18APs was replaced by a Meru system with 80(Now over 100) APs to achieve a slower client throughput. The system required a Meru engineer to be flown in to work with a UK based engineer for two days to get the thing working!

I can only talk about meru, but we had 49 ap's and a controller installed last July. We have the best and most reliable wireless we have ever had. With our old netgear setup, it would take 30 laptops with 2x2 cards in them 15-20 minutes to login. Those same laptops with no changes except the ssid now take 2 minutes.
We find it just works. It is all down to setup of the system. We had SwitchShop in to implement our setup. We had various ssid's setup for different purposes. I would say it is down to setup, get this right and you should have no issues.
