I have been at DigitalAir Wireless for just over 5 months now and my eyes have been opened to big wide world of wireless, more recently I have been dropped into the sub-world of Wireless Bridging so I thought in an effort to enlighten others into what is required when planning a Point to Point wireless bridge I would document what I’ve picked up in this blog.

Ruckus Unleashed - High performance networking, at an affordable price point!

Geared towards small and medium businesses (SMBs), Ruckus Unleashed™ Access Points allow you to provide the same high-quality Ruckus Smart Wi-Fi, without the cost of purchasing a dedicated WLAN controller. In order to help owners grow their business, deliver an excellent customer experience and manage costs while supporting Wi-Fi and a variety of mobile devices with minimal IT overheads, Ruckus Unleashed access points have built-in controller capabilities such as; user access controls, guest networking functions, advanced Wi-Fi security and traffic management, allowing for the quick and simple deployment of a high performance and resilient network within minutes. Ruckus Unleashed networks are designed to handle up to 25 access points and 512 simultaneous client connections and rather than having a dedicated controller to manage your wireless network, as you\\\'ll find in most enterprise-grade AP networks, the first Ruckus access point connected to your wired Ethernet network instead, acts as a controller for any others you may connect. Any access point can be configured as either a passive member of the group, its primary master or as a standby master in case the primary master loses connectivity. As businesses grow to multiple sites or a larger scale deployment, Ruckus offers an easy migration path to controller based Wi-Fi, allowing uses to leverage their existing Unleashed investments to seamlessly upgrade to the ZoneDirector and SmartZone management platforms.

Currently using cost effective access points, they were looking for a solution that would cover more area (due to experiencing black spots) with half as many access points.
