The recent Unifi product decisions have me starting to debate changing my wireless network here at home, and in searching around Ruckus seems to keep bubbling to the top of alternatives. Does anyone have any recent, first hand experience they can share? A few questions/comments below:
- From what I've read, Ruckus seems to lead most of the industry when it comes to RF performance/stability; especially with respect to the Unifi APs. Does this fit with people's experience?
- It appears that the Unleashed firmware variant allows the APs to act as their own controller, including support for failover if you have multiple APs and the master goes offline. How does the Unleashed controller compare to others, specifically the Unifi controller?
- This morning I created an account on the Ruckus support site, and it would appear that I can now download firmware images/updates for their APs without any sort of support contract, is there some hidden gotcha here (e.g. activation key, license file, etc.)? In other words, if I were to grab a used Ruckus AP, would I be able to get no-cost firmware updates directly from Ruckus?
