Ruckus

Hi there

Any plans to add Ruckus AP's to your list of supported hardware?

It would be great to be able to monitor them and reboot them as needed

 

Thanks

They have mentioned Ruckus support is coming. They talked about Unleashed specifically in a webinar.

Thanks so much for the reply @hdsystems - really helpful and sounds promising 

Fingers crossed they can add the zonedirector controlled systems too

Confirmed we will be implementing specific features for access points over the next couple of months. This will include Ruckus, but also some other access points such as meraki, and ubiquity.

Why would you reboot a running AP?

Aside from getting a new IP address??? The only reason to reboot it would be due to lock up. Which would have to be done at the outlet or switch level.

@Springs - when using a 'dumb/unmanaged' POE switch, having the ability to reboot the AP's is extremely useful

If it locks up (you answered this already?)

or when using the ethernet 'pass-through' port for a 3rd party device and this isn't operating as it should

 

Im presuming you disagree from your tone - but it would be useful for us

 

Different blokes, different .......

My point was that a locked up device can't be rebooted from a message or the like. You still need to cut the power.

If powered via POE - it can be

It only can't if powered via a local mains plug - which isn't how we do our Ruckus installs

What he is getting at is there doesn't need to be any special support for ruckus to reboot it when poe powered. You'd need the switch or outlet (that the injector Is plugged into) to be supported.
