I don't really agree with this statement and as I was saying from quotes where we have been looking at a like for like deployment of a HP solution then price has been comparable. maybe those ruckus resellers had surveyed wrong I don't know who can say. Most of the time it comes down to capacity required rather than signal radius.
But I'm not really looking to get into an argument with a ruckus reseller just answering responding to queries about HP posts listed.
I will take your advice and PM staff here, however was responding to a direct request for a HP reseller to contact another member rather than general advertising of services.
Well what can I say, price has not been an issue where we have been quoting against Ruckus in the past. Maybe your Ruckus pricing is better I don't know.

I'll support Steve here on this too, as he's one of our regular suppliers of HP stuff
Price for HP vs Ruckus for me lately the 2 are neck and neck - it's all down to features, support and capability - and if Ruckus weren't running their deal, HP would be cheaper.
I'll second Simon's comment on sponsorship too - a quick glance on here will show you how many people use the forums for finding suppliers so it could be a boon for CSE to join up
Nice to see more of my regular suppliers turning up on here.
Still not made up our minds though here...

Price HP vs Ruckus AP for AP isn't the only consideration if the HP AP's dont offer the same kind of coverage and speed untimately you will end up paying more. What also hasnt been said is the Ruckus kit is very very straightforward to setup and manage.
If CSE is confident in its claims then it will give you some demo kit to run side by side with some ruckus, aruba, meru etc.
Pricewise it was project cost like for like that I was referring to rather than particular components. We haven't had any issues with range compared to other products and definately Speed isn't an issue. There are other happy HP users that have posted in this forum, it's a well estrablished wireless solution.
Correct planning and implementation also play an important part to the overall sucess of the network.
Thanks guys have requested info on Sponsorship
I happily stand corrected, however the kits that were shown to us as "managed solutions" involved us manually setting each AP. And that was solutions from the afore mentioned companies.
When i say the Ruckus is very very easy to setup i mean the inital setup takes about 5 minutes and the interface is very user friendly and far from intimidating for those with a limited skill set. I did trial out other solutions before hand aruba in particular i had for a month and yes once all setup it is plug and play on the AP front but config took much longer and want nearly as user friendly.
This is something worth bareing in mind if like me you have a couple of other techs that are using the interface as time is money.
