We have a suite of 30 netbooks (hopefully soon to be increased to 60, or have 30 Surface RTs added). How will it handle 30-60 students all trying to log on and access their files etc at the same time?
Just remember with the proprietary cloud managed solutions to ensure your budget will always be able to cover the renewal costs otherwise you could end up with very expensive plastic bricks mounted to the ceiling in the future ;)
Used Ruckus at my last place, very nice and got Aruba at the college I work at now
Currently we have 40 Airports dotted around our Comp.. With over 700 devices.. Id does the job very very well.
Obv.. Not fully managed... ;)
Hi @Phildw if you would like to add Ruckus to the list of solutions you're looking at let me know and i can get someone to give you a call to discuss it in more detail and answer any questions. We have a dedicated Ruckus sales and tech team that would be happy to help :)
Has anyone come across Open-Mesh? I've recently come across it. It has a cloud based controller, which is subscription free (unlike Meraki I believe) and the APs cost about £70 each. It comes across as a mesh type system, but its not a problem to cable each AP into the network to make it a non-mesh system. I'm planning to purchase a couple of APs and test it. Anyone see any show stoppers with it?
