Hi,

It is possible, of cause, you have multiple options:

1. Use Ruckus Cloud.

2. Use Ruckus controller (ZD1200, SmartZone or virtual Smartzone)

3. Use them in Unleashed mode (controller software runs on AP).

The last option is in principle free (if not buying support), all other require subscription or licenses and some additional hardware.

To use R600 as unleashed, you need to change AP image to Unleashed image (available on Support portal). You can use 200.7 or older, as R600 is not supported on later versions.

Hope it helps.

How do you control them at the moment?  Do you have a controller?

You could convert them to Unleashed by loading the Unleashed firmware available here https://support.ruckuswireless.com/software/3022-ruckus-unleashed-ap-200-7-10-202-127-mr-refresh6-software-for-r600

@andrea_coppini Hi, thanks for your comment, but I haven't any controller to control them.

@iis_galilei then you would need to load the firmware I linked to above, one by one to each AP. Once that is done you can configure all the APs into a single Unleashed cluster.

For more functionality you would need a Ruckus Cloud subscription or buy a ZD1200 or SmartZone Controller.

Just note that the R600 is currently considered end of life, so once the https://support.ruckuswireless.com/software/3022-ruckus-unleashed-ap-200-7-10-202-127-mr-refresh6-software-for-r600 software will be the last supported version of code on this access point.

On the positive, you won't ever need to do an upgrade! :)  Set it and forget it.
