    Ruckus Wireless as an Unifi alternative?

    I agree with assessment that replacing unifi w/ ruckus has been faster and more stable. I replaced a nanoHD & AC-PRO w/ 2x R610 in the same locations and it has been a quantifiable improvement. I have installed 2x r510s in a friend's house, and they are similar performance to the r610s. I...

    Brocade ICX Series (cheap & powerful 10gbE/40gbE switching)

    Since I was moving some stuff around in the closet today, I did a little power measurement. Using killawatt: 7250-48 - 31W idle (only console) 7250-24p - 45W idle (only console) Before the poe was initialized i saw 35W on the 24p. Edit: I realize that the -48 was previously a stack member...

    Brocade ICX Series (cheap & powerful 10gbE/40gbE switching)

    I do like the looks of the 7150-c12p :) It looks better in black.

    Brocade ICX Series (cheap & powerful 10gbE/40gbE switching)

    I have a friend that got a quote to upgrade his old ZF7372 ruckus network in his dental office to "Access Networks". It was a big $$ number and it wasn't clear what model they were putting in. Instead we acquired a number of R710s, and upgraded everything ourselves.

    [WTB] AMD 64 Core 'ES' and ''QS' CPU's

    The one that matches your board? You might want to read that entire thread... There is a lot there. I used the Rome_H11SSLI_Rev2 cause the stickers on my SM H11SSLI board said Rev 2.0 :) H11SSLI - Single socket board H11DSI - Dual socket board The MZ01 are gigabyte boards.

    Any downsides with ConnectX-3?

    I can't imagine linux removing support for the ConnectX-3 cards.. how many ancient generations of intel chips are still supported? Incidentally ConnectX3 is supported by the mlx4 linux driver. I don't feel bad picking up cheap SFP+ cards, then you have options - you can rock the 10GB-T or...

    Ruckus Wireless as an Unifi alternative?

    I went from a AP-PRO and a nanoHD 1 year ago to 2x R610, and couldn't be happier. I get substantially higher speeds and connection quality throughout the house. IMHO, R610s are fine (as would R710s or likely even R510s). I don't see that the wifi6 APs are worth the cost. I run multiple...

    Ruckus Wireless as an Unifi alternative?

    Understood that 4 APs might be overkill. The house is 2300 sqft on the main level, and 1600 on the lower level (+ garage). My thought was that I would have 2 on the main level. One in the pantry on one side of the house, and one in the master closet on the other. And wire for a potential 1 or...

    Ruckus Wireless as an Unifi alternative?

    While thinking of planning ahead while building house, (won't call it future proofing).. Planning for 3-4 r610s for now, running from a ICX7250. Should I run 2x cat6/cat6a for LACP/LAG to each AP? or assume that in the future NBASE-T becomes more prevalent, and I can get away with only one...

    EXPIRED Brocade ICX-7250P

    This router is not compatible with multigig. They don’t have the drivers required to generate the appropriate clocks for 2.5 or 5. Only 1 or 10 will work. There is more info in the large brocade thread.
