    Ruckus Wireless

    I am looking at installing a wireless network over a small site and have been quoted for a Ruckus Zone Director 1000 and 10 x 7363 APs. Can anyone advise me on a suitable and reasonably priced 12 port 1Gbps POE switch to run the APs from? Also am I right in thinking if I use 1 of the 1Gbps ports to stack to a 1Gbps up/down link ethernet port on a 3com 4210 I will only have 1Gbps connection shared between the 10APs?

    Would Ruckus not recommend something like this for you? If they can and install it etc at least then you know you are dealing with 1 company who know the whole install back to front and your only looking at them if there are any problems.

    Could get rid of a lot of ambiguity if something goes wrong and they say "you bought the POE switch, not us" (not saying they would say that, but you know what i mean!).

    You would be correct, all those AP's would end up sharing that 1GB backbone. I'd be looking at something like linking a few 1GB ports together to get yourself a 4GB link or something. Also, if you already have a 3com network, personally I'd say stick with 3com.

    Not really - Ruckus would focus more on their own gear, one of their resellers would probably discuss the switching needs though. I'd say give net-ctrl a call, and see what they say.

    We're using a ProCurve for this very job.

    It surprises me that Ruckus (or any company) wouldnt provide a solution from start to finish. If they offer the AP's and the controller but not the POE to get them to work, what good is this solution? Maybe its just me but i'd like to know if i am paying for someone to come in that i wouldnt have to then go running around to also find the extra bits to get it to actually work from elsewhere (and then install it all yourself as well?).

    Just for information, in few months, Ruckus's going to have his own switch
