Currently evaluating Ruckus 7900 series AP for our Bingo application used by 100's of Bingo Halls.

Currently using Cisco AP's where we can configure a model and send the config file to the location to be uploaded, thus eliminating the need for configuration on-site by our techs. Can the Ruckus AP support this model?

These can be small locations with one or two AP's which do not warrant a Zone Director.

I have AP configured and it is working great but missing a config file could be a deal killer for us.

Hi Mel,

With Regards to your question on standalone 7982 AP support configuring via config file .
There is no option to take a backup of Ruckus standalone AP configuration, it is only possible to take a backup of ZD configuration since unlike ZD, AP does not have much things like local database, DPSK or guest pass keys stored in its memory.

However you can push the AP Configuration Templates to all standalone AP's if these AP's are connected with Flex-Master[Ruckus Management Software].

Configuration templates allow you to provision changes in bulk to a group of devices.Attributes, such as SSIDs, login info, and L2TP settings, can be applied in bulk by simply deploying a configuration template. For example, you can change the SSIDs or L2TP settings of a group of ZoneFlex 2942 APs.

Please go through the below link which helps you to know about template creation in FlexMaster

All the best.
