One of the best ways is testing with the evaluation equipment we have so please let us know if you want to test some and we can schedule it in for you.
I would love someone to come onsite and do a survey. However there's one issue with that... Not all of the building is present...
I can recommend all of that equipment, we have just had it installed here! Try ADA, they are a HP preferred partner and did all the installation.
I must just clear up one point that the Buy One Get One Free offer is not just offered by Simon it has been set by Ruckus since around January and all resellers have been offering it since that time.
This is a special promotion offered for Education
You MUST purchase the following to qualify though
1 x 1025 ZoneDirector
20(minimum) ZoneFlex Access Points 802.11n or 802.11n d-band - you will then receive half free of charge
3 years maintenane on the ZoneDirector
3 years maintenance on the ZoneFlex
This is a happy deal so enjoy
I think the first thing to do is make sure you are happy with the cost as the survey is only relevent to the solution you decide to consider purchasing, if you dont like what you see with Ruckus then you would need a survey with HP etc as the access points all perform differently and can provide very different results.
Trapeze has been a solid managed wireless solution for us here. I don't have the figures on what it cost but combined with Ringmaster software its very easy to manage and monitor. They came and did a site survey for us and took the site plans away and formated them for Ringmaster so if you add any new access points you can place them onto the plans first and see what coverage they'll give you based on walls etc. As for your network switches we've got cisco poe's here and they havent let us down but before we had a number of 3 com switches that were much more reasonable price wise and a treat to manage.

Mark is correct the deal is on for all resellers of Ruckus, The only difference is the pricing from each supplier on the parts you pay for , We seem to be the cheapest in the UK at the moment and this is feedback from customers,
Geoff I sent you a PM, hope it helps!
We are a HP gold Partner and have been deploying the HP managed WESM solution for the 5300/5400 for years and the newer MSM solution and can provide you with a quote/survey if required.
Also from what I have seen, heard, the HP MSM solution isn't more expensive than the Ruckus solution, just to answer some other points that thought it may be. Also with the MSM and the WESM solution they are centrall managed so you don't have to config all points seperately. The 520 and the 420 are none centrally managed AP's hence the setup for people with these ones.
Send me the details over and I can get it sorted for you
I will PM you as well.
I suggest you pm staff here first and enquire about advertising before pm'ing members as spam from a unauthorised supplier is frowned upon on this forum and could get you banned!
