What’s Happening with Wi-Fi?
Ruckus are our preferred choice when it comes to Wi-Fi, their technology is innovative, market leading and it just works so amazingly well that we recommend it to everyone. Last month they announced the launches of some exciting new products and software that we just had to tell you about!
Ruckus Unleashed is their platform that allows a deployment of specific access points to function without the need for a controller. November 2016 was its 1 year anniversary and they’ve come a long way since its release. This year they have added two access points to their Unleashed line; the R510 802.11ac Wave 2 AP which is suitable for all enterprises and the wall-mountable H510 802.11ac Wave 2 AP which is perfect as an in-room access point.
Also, a new firmware release enables the AP’s to support Gateway Mode, which means direct connectivity and easy installation of the AP’s to a cable/DSL modem. A new built-in speed test tool called SpeedFlex also enables troubleshooting between Mesh connected Unleashed AP’s.
The most exciting launch, however, has been the Ruckus Unleashed Management App which further simplifies an already to install set of Unleashed AP’s. The app can be used to both install and manage the platform, and it uses simple instructions that are easy to follow.
As soon as these launches are available we will be talking more about them, get in touch to find out more.
