I'm looking for information about the capabilities of the USB port on Ruckus AP's (R510, E510, T310, ...) and how to (if possible) tunnel data from/to the connected USB devices to the controlplane or dataplane (SmartZone & SmartZone dataplane) for use on another system.
Is there an API available to attach and use custom USB devices.
I'm told that the USB interface, next to iot devices, is fully usable but I'm having difficulty locating relevant documentation.
Any pointers in the right direction is greatly appreciated.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Thank you for your response. It appears we have been misinformed by a sales representative who said one could connect anything as long as it's a USB 2.0 device and you can work with the API.
That aside, can you be more specific about "an IoT dongle", please?
I have found the Ruckus i100 IoT Module.
(supports BLE and Zigbee)
www [dot] commscope [dot] com/product-type/enterprise-networking/iot-networking/i100/
This document mentions a USB module supporting several other radio protocols
(G3, G4, LTE and WiMAX)
docs [dot] ruckuswireless [dot] com/zonedirector/10.2/GUID-DD40853E-092F-403A-84E8-4BED6653121F.html
This educational video mentions "[...]BLE, Zigbee, LoRa and more."

Are there more IoT dongles available next to the i100 Module?
