Hello Guys
I've got a question. We're using a Dell SonicWALL at the moment with the SonicWALL AP's.
Now we need new AP's and I don't know if the Ruckus AP's are compatible with the Dell SonicWall (just over VLAN's) or if we have to buy a ZoneDirector. At the moment we have 5 AP's but I think the reach of the Ruckus AP's is much better so we will not need that many AP's anymore.
Thank you for your efforts in advance.
Best regards
Beni

The SonicWall is your network Firewall, protecting your internal LAN.
Yes, you can use Ruckus APs on your internal LAN for client access.

Assuming you use the SonicWALL to manage your network security, you might want to evaluate Ruckus’ latest Unleashed offering, which has a built-in and slimmed down controller for up to 25 APs.  VLANs will be a non-issue.

I looked on Unleashed, my question now, if I have already diffrent WIFI zones managed over my Firewall, can it handle those? (like domain or guest)

Thanks for the fast reply.
Does the Unleashed controller only supports 1 location or is it no problem to manage several networks for example over a Leased Line?

however you make Ruckus AP's as standalone and Dell sonicwall as firewall/DHCP/DNS server etc that is doable..You can configure VLAN's on the sonicwall, sensitize your L2 switches for VLAN, configure your Ruckus AP's. that is too doable..
