Can a Smartcell 8800 backhaul to a Zoneflex 7731 using the 5GHz Radio interface? If so, is it straight forward?

I have a 7731 that I am using to create a PTMP network with other 7731s. I wish to add a SmartCell 8800 in the configuration.
Can this be done using the 5GHz Radio interface?
Are there any differences from joining two 7731s together?

Thanks.

Sorry no, you'd still have to use a pair of 7731 and a wired connection to the SC8800. There are other devices it can mesh with for backhaul purposes, but not the 7731.

Morning Keith,

Thanks for the clearing that up. As a follow up, would a 7762 be able to backhaul onto a 7731 instead of an 8800, still using the 5GHz radio interface?

Thanks.

That *might* work (with the 7731 configured as a "client" device) but I would recommend opening a support case to validate the design. https://support.ruckuswireless.com/co...
