What do we mean by a bottom up approach? A bottom up approach requires you to first build the wireless network, then in a stable, scalable and secure fashion, build in the IoT solutions on top. Many organisations take the Top down approach, finding a solution to a problem followed by overlaying a network to connect to the solution.
The Ruckus IoT Suite simplifies the creation of IoT access networks through the reuse of LAN and WLAN infrastructure, thus shortening deployment duration and reducing the cost to support multiple IoT solutions.
Although WiFi bridges and WiFi meshing are common in replacing the need for cabling, they serve different requirements. Many IT professionals prefer to terminate access points using a wired connection; however, this isn’t always feasible or sensible.

Shoosmiths required a connection between their existing site and their new office they were migrating to. A network solution would provide connectivity for a total of 90 migrating staff. The link recommended to Shoosmiths was an 80 Ghz Band E wireless link due to the requirement of high availability, low latency and gigabit throughput with AES encryption.
