R600 (Wave1) vs R720 (Wave2) for primarily mobile clients
I've worked with some wireless hardware from other vendors before but I've read a
lot of good things about Ruckus and I'm looking into using it for an
upcoming project and would appreciate some guidance.
I need to provide connectivity in a 60' x 60'
space. There are no obstructions. I cannot ceiling mount any APs over
the interior of the space however I can ceiling mount the APs around the
perimeter. I am planning to use 3 APs, staggered (ex: in the shape of a triangle) and ZoneDirector for management.
Total number of connected clients will be 500. Client devices will be primarily mobile phones. Guest will be seated. Use-case will be social media posting. No video streaming or downloading.
believe either the R600 or the R720 are the APs that I should be
considering. I've read that the suggested max number of clients per AP
when using AES on the R600 is 180 (for 5g). I'm not sure if the same limit
applies to the R720 but I would expect it to be the same or higher.
I'm trying to determine whether I should invest in 802.11ac Wave1 (R600) or Wave2 (R720) capable hardware given that 802.11ax is on the horizon.
Will current mobile clients see a significant benefit from the R720 over the R600?
