We will using bridge mode for all of our APs per Ruckus best practice. All of our servers on campus run under VMWare and all of them whether running Windows, Linux, or some form of Unix reside in vlan 125. Normally we would place our Ruckus vSZ controllers in vlan 125. This is a vlan that at the moment we do not trunk outside the data center with our layer2/3 core switch providing routing to this vlan.
- Is there any reason to have the Ruckus APs also in vlan 125? It appears that a simple DNS entry can point the APs to the controller in a different vlan
- We will be dividing wireless client traffic into different vlans based on type (district owned device, staff or student personal device, or guest device). Should the APs themselves be in a separate vlan from the vlans that carry wireless traffic? In other words, should the 400 APs that we plan on installing be in a vlan by themselves?
