Hi ,

Our company have just start to implement the Ruckus products in our projects .

For our first project of WiFi HOTSPOT,we have install in it outdoor on the street. The purpose of the network is to give free WiFi to the clients.They will use it only with the Smartphones and tablets  (for internet ,email, social networks ,etc) with small traffic. We estimate to have between 500 and a maxim of 1500 users.

10 - AP Ruckus T300 Unleashed
1 Virtual controller
Internet speed 1000Mbps

Switch with RJ45 connection or SFP

I got stuck in what switch should I use (switch with RJ45 connection or SFP
),to have a very good traffic. Please if you can give me some advice that will be great.

Thank you in advance !

As you have defined you are using T300's. The T300's only have Ethernet RJ45 connections. So your switch choice is a copper Ethernet one.

Hi, I'm not an expert, but here are my 2 cents

there's an fiber node kit for t300:

In our case, we decide between fiber or copper depends on the distance, but in high concurrency scenarios fiber will give you more B/W and less latency.
