RUCKUS SmartZone – Simplifying Network Setup and Management

SmartZone is RUCKUS’ approach to on-premises LAN/WLAN network management. If you want to have your own private cloud or physical controller, the SmartZone platform is the best way to achieve this. It can manage access points and switches, with the ability to be connected to RUCKUS Analytics.

It allows for unprecedented scalability, allowing for up to 100,000s client devices. Active clustering allows for N + 1 redundancy for local failover, whilst geo-redundancy allows for uninterrupted service with WAN failover, as well as multiple platform options with deployment flexibility with on-premises or public/private cloud support. We support Amazon AWS, Google Cloud, VM Ware, ESXI Nutanix and KVM.

There is a single pane of glass for both wired and wireless devices. We support resource partitioning and isolation with multi-tenancy support. You have the capability to integrate APIs with REST API support and simple licencing options for easy administration. As the licences are not tied to hardware, you can swap out hardware without having to repurchase licences.

There are several different controllers available, however, it is all about selecting the controller that is right for you.
