Unleashed and FIPS compliance

I have a couple R610s for a small business I support. Is it possible to run the Unleashed firmware and have the devices be FIPS 140-2 compliant?  Or do I need a Smartzone controller to talk to the AP's to ensure FIPS compliance?

Also, this is unrelated to my comment above but I've submitted contact form data on this site several times but have never actually heard from anyone at Ruckus.  What gives?

Unfortunately, my understanding is that you cannot operate an Unleashed R610 as FIPS compliant.  As you guessed, FIPS compliance can only be achieved when managed via SZ.

FIPS is only supported on SZ and vSZ controllers with FIPS SKU APs only. Unleashed is not supported.
