Hi Alejandro,

Have you visited our High Density page and looked at the Library documents there? http://www.ruckuswireless.com/carrier...

Quite a few variables to take into account for these complex environments.

I've found that usually a maximum of 20% of users are actually on a WLAN at any given time. So I would consider 2000 users for calculations. If then you take that each AP can take at least 250 users and you have 60 APs it means you've got a 15000 user budget there.

Just don't forget to disable non OFDM and raise BSS minimum rate IF applicable. Depends on the environment, but you could go to up to 24Mbps minimum bss rate.

And if APs are condensed in one location, like a stadium, use directional antennas.

Hi.
My point of view of the question is based on the limitation of ZD3000 about number of users when it have a license up to 250 AP,s (5000 users).
Is there the similar limitation for ZD5000?

Thanks in advanced

That count is a systems limitation based on DPSK and un-related to the license count you may have installed.

Thanks Keith

So, If I configure non-authenticated and non-encryption wlan, Could I have more than 5000 users on ZD3000 with license under 250 AP ́s ?

When Ruckus said the ZD1100 accepts up to 1250 clients, ZD3000 accepts up to 10000 clients, and ZD5000 accepts up to 20000 clients. Are those clients authenticated and unauthenticated?

As of 9.7 release yes (see section 5.1.1 in the release notes). But earlier releases do still have tiered user counts based on licensing and so I should have clarified that above. The High Density Deployment library above I believe addresses your other questions.

I strongly urge you contact your local Ruckus account resources to ensure success. I am not at all experienced in large venues and so may inadvertently provide incorrect information for your specific needs. Your account team can help muster resources to guide you correctly.
