As promised in one of my earlier blogs, I am going to be over the next few weeks looking into the various controllers available from Ruckus Wireless. Rather than writing endless pages of content I thought it would be easier to share with you small videos summarising what the controller does, where it might fit into your business and how simple they are to configure for a basic/secure setup for wireless access.
The first of the videos will be covering the virtual SmartZone controller.
WiFi is faced with growing challenges in delivering high-performance and reliable WiFi. Enterprises must meet consumer needs for high-density, flexibility, and cost efficiency. The Ruckus virtual SmartZone – Essentials (vSZ-E) is a virtualized WLAN controller solution that meets these demands.
Designed for small, medium and large enterprises, the Ruckus vSZ-E delivers the cost and flexibility of virtualization with the scaling capabilities of the SmartZone Software Platform. This new WiFi platform offers ‘WiFi-as-you-grow’— the capability for your network to grow with and adapt to the changing needs of your business and deliver an optimal wireless experience.
· Performance and scalability: Supports 1,024 APs and 25,000 WiFi clients per vSZ-E instance.
· Network Flexibility: deploy a virtual controller that addresses the particular scale and performance needs of your business and your network.
· WiFi as you grow: easily transition from another SmartZone WiFi controller to either vSZ version with Smart Licensing.
So the upcoming videos are going to show you how simple it is to deploy and configure a virtual instance of the Ruckus Smartzone essentials and in the coming weeks will we have video shorts on how to configure the controller itself and how the features may benefit your company.
