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...
Since I was moving some stuff around in the closet today, I did a little power measurement.
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...
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.
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.
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...
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...
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...
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...
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.
