    Ruckus and Cisco VLan's?

    I'm looking at installing a Ruckus Wireless solution onto an Cisco network infrastructure, can it link in with an existing Cisco VLan architecture? Or do we have to configure something funky for it?

    We currently have VLans for

    Server
    Printers
    Admin
    Curriculum

    So thinking of adding
    Guest Wireless
    Student Wireless
    Staff Wireless

    Would we be doing something with the Cisco End or Ruckus? Or a bit of both? Anyone out there with this experience?

    Cheers

    as long as your VLANs are properly numbered and routed, you can set up the ruckus VLANs to use the same numbers (EG number 10 for Curriculum/Students, 20 for Staff/Admin) etc

    Does it make sense?

    Allow me to expand on this

    Our servers are broken down as follows

    AdminServer - VLAN Route 10
    CurriculumServer - VLAN Route 20
    GuestServer (This just routes through a highly filtered proxy) - VLAN Route 30
    Printers - VLAN Route 40

    Ruckus is broken down as follows

    Staff - Ruckus VLAN Route 10
    Student - Ruckus VLAN Route 20
    Guest - Ruckus VLAN Route 30

    From here students connect to student wireless and only have access to the student system. It routes perfectly fine provided it all matches up
