    Indeed - I've just finished sorting out another Aruba 800 switch to go with our first as we went over the 16 APs. We now have 2 800 switches, 22 APs working in Master / Local mode - during the summer I'll get round to re-doing the whole thing again so there is some redunancy on the APs.
    It can be done - expensive yes, but not a problem with a good managed solution.

    just to complete the thread i started.. we went through a procurement exercise and selected an aruba installer. we installed a draft-n light wieght wap system using 16 waps. the end result is great. every one of the 130 users can hit the network at once with an acceptable level of performance. The real test will be next year when we add another year group to the floor above

    will let you know how it goes.

    Ruckus. Each access point can cope with 60-100 clients, and it's a lot cheaper than we thought it would be!

    As Dom said this is a great option and really easy to install and manage with very little cost.

    Ruckus can cope well with 30 - 100 clients on each access point, we are out of the box ready to deal with

    VOIP
    DATA
    VIDEO

    Check out the comments already on Ruckus within the forum

    PM me your details and location and I will happily send you infomation about the product.

    Also let me know your location as I am on the road for the 3 weeks so may be passing and can pop in to see you.

    Cheers

    Have to say we too are very impressed with aruba kit, especially the range of the APs and the set up.
