I want to deploy three R500 ap’s for a customer in a mesh style setup with matching SSID’s. All ap’s will be wired to the same switch. Can someone point me in the right direction. I’m normally a Ubiquiti guy but the customer has specifically requested Ruckus. Any information will be much appreciated.

Hi Joshua,

Please can you explain what you mean by "wired mesh" and what you are trying to achieve.? Mesh is deployed for access points that need to be connected to the LAN wirelessly, i.e. they do not have a cabled connection.

If you have 3 x Ruckus APs that are hard-wired in to the LAN then you don't need a Mesh setup.

Ruckus APs require a controller for Mesh operation; either Unleashed, Ruckus Cloud, ZoneDirector or SmartZone.
