We are a public school district looking to do a complete overhaul of our wireless network. A bit over 725,000 square feet of indoor space, 4,300 students with nearly 1,400 students in the High School who are heavy users. We are looking at 5 different wireless vendors including Ruckus. In a nutshell, why should we choose Ruckus? We have engaged the local Ruckus sales staff and engineers but it is always good to hear from current customers.

I was the person who started this thread a year ago when we were trying to make a decision between Ruckus and Aruba. Just a month a go we brought up our first school on Ruckus R710 APs. Last week we brought up our Junior/Senior High School and within 2 months we will complete campus. We will use a bit over 400 APs and two Virtual Smartzone Controllers running under VMWare. We are very happy with the results. Our fleet of Windows and Mac laptops as well as Chromebooks have a rock solid connection. We have a all district owned devices on 5GHz and personal devices on 2.4. We also use Cloudpath to onboard all personal devices.
