HI,

I am looking at getting rid of my ZD and shifting over to CloudWifi, but i have a few questions first:
Reasons are we are moving to 2 sites, and our ZD is old.

1) Do i need to open any firewall ports by moving over to cloudwifi, because of replacing the ZD?

2) Can i setup Scheduling of AP's SSID's ? i don't need my WiFi to be running on Sundays and weeknights.

Thanks

Cloud Wi-Fi leverages the SmartZone software hence there are several ports which need to be opened on firewall for it to function correctly..
Some of the FAQ's are here -- https://ruckus-www.s3.amazonaws.com/pdf/product-info/ruckus-cloud-wifi-faq.pdf

Thanks a lot Monnat Systems - great help!!

Just a side note: All communication between Ruckus Cloud and the APs is initiated from the AP. If the firewall is allowing SSH, HTTPS etc ports from IN to OUT direction, then there is no need to add any firewall rules. Vast majority of cloud wi-fi customers do not need to update their firewall. 

Cheers

Just found the Ts&Cs: Trial and ship-to location must be in the United States or Canada!
Typical!

Time-based scheduling of WLAN availability can be configured by going to Venues->select your Venue->select the Networks tab for that venue->right hand side you see a Clock icon as below which allows you to set the on/off schedule.
