    Looking for advice/opinions (Ruckus and Aruba)

    We are currently looking at managed wireless networks. I was wondering if anyone had any experience and opinions on Ruckus and Aruba. One is substantially cheaper than the other, by miles. Has anyone got either of the systems in or had any experience with them?

    Cheers.

    Last week we had Aruba come in and show off their solution, must say we was all very impressed with the overall simplicity, although when it comes to price I have no idea.

    Same here - Trialled the ruckus kit just before half term. Took no more than 20 minutes to set the kit up then about an hour to set 30 laptops to the new wireless network

    Worked a dream!
