What is the difference between the 9U1-R510-US00 and the 901-R510-US00?

I can't find any details on why they are sold by the same dealers but why they are different prices.

9U1 is the unleashed firmware and 901 is the cloud/controller firmware.  Depending on stock levels, we'll reflash one or the other if necessary.  The pricing difference may be due to incentives on one SKU, but not the other (current unleashed is cheaper).

You'll have to have entitlement to access, but you can download the current Unleashed firmware for all models here:  https://support.ruckuswireless.com/software?filter=82#firmwares

or the cloud/controller R510 here:

Thanks again.   Even if I had just one AP, why wouldn't I want to run the unleashed version of the software?

Thanks for the help Matt!  The '901' part numbers ship with Solo AP firmware that can run in Standalone mode,
or will join a ZoneDirector or SmartZone controller.  The '9U1' AP part numbers are shipped with Unleashed code,
that will not connect to a ZD/SZ, but looks for a local Unleashed network, or can be used to setup one from it's
ConfigureMe.AABBCC ssid they broadcast. (See Unleashed Admin online docs)  The price difference is due to
support entitlement differences.  Controllers license number of APs per controller/cluster, and Unleashed support
is one license for up to 25 APs in the network.  The -US00 at the end indicates United States FCC regulatory
compatible.

Btw, Unleashed 200.5.10.0.x is expected to release this week, adding H320, H510, R720, T610, and T610s to the
Unleashed family of supported AP models.  Software downloads will be available from the first link Matt provided
above.  https://support.ruckuswireless.com/software?filter=82#firmwares
