I'm fairly new to Ruckus wireless solutions and wanted to ask the following :-

How exactly does entering AP position within the mapview - change the behaviour of zonedirector ?

How much difference does completing an accurate map of AP placement within a zone director actually make to the overall performance of the wireless solution?

None whatsoever.

You can enter a floor plan of your environment and then place your APs in relevant positions:
It will give you a very approximate coverage overlap between APs
It shows you AP location at a glance.
Otherwise I am struggling to make a case for it.

It's a sadly underdeveloped tool that sounds good but seems to have little benefit.

To be clear: Ruckus good, mapview not.

Views contra are welcome.
