Looking for a new wireless network
We are looking for information and pricing for a wireless network.
We currently do not have one in place and are taking the opportunity to find out what the prospective costs would be. Our school is currently awaiting a decision to see if we are part of the first wave of PSBP schools hence the final proposed solution may have to be amended.
My first question is to other school based technical staff:
If you have a managed wireless system what is it? Ruckus, Meru, something else? I am specifically interested in Meru and Ruckus.
If you have Meru, Ruckus what do you see as possitives and negatives of the system you have? If you could make the decision again would you change your mind.
Finally and I am sorry if I cannot do this, (please tell me), but any one from Meru or Ruckus who is willing to help can you please PM me details so I can contact you to arrange for site visits to get this started,

I've PM'd you too. We're a Meru partner so we can help you out with this. We also work with other vendors such as Netgear so might be worth thinking about them too

We use Ubiquiti and are happy to have visiters.

Selcoms are the largest EU distributor for Ruckus Wireless. We do NOT sell direct to end-users but we can put you in touch with one of our VAR partners if required to arrange a demo. Ruckus will happily go head to head with any other vendor to compare coverage, capacity and performance. Some of our VARs are active on this site so may be in touch anyway. Good luck!

Do you want a controller based setup? Questions, which could occur, next:
Do you want to simply plug in the access point into every subnet, want the access point to gets its IP address and the IP address of its controller with e.g. "master.mydomain.com" from DHCP?
Do you want your access points connect to its controllerm, so every traffic will be forwarded over it (and not into the local subnet)?
Do you want your clients getting their IPs from the controller, not from the local subnet?
Do you want the controller itself source NATing all clients?
Do you want the controller itself having a real statefull firewall running?
What about IPv6? Do you need all wifi access points running a IPv4/IPv6 dual stack for now?
Do you want your clients getting IPv6 addresses, too, so they can browser IPv6 www?
Do you want your controller having an IPv6 stateful firewall?
(No, I do not know any wifi solution doing all this...)

Something else, specifically Aruba. And we're very happy with it
