Here are the response to the Questions raised in the webinar.
Q1. How can I support the newer APs in a existing environment where I have AP models - R600, R500? I have a requirement to add T350.. Can I use 6.1?
No, While T350 is supported in 6.1. R500 and R600 can not be supported beuond release is 3.6.2. To accommodate both AP models in the same controller – you will need enable multi-zone support – one zone hosting release 3.6.2 while another zone hosting 6.1. 6.1 however does not support a zone with 3.6.2. For that you have to wait for release 6.1.1 which is planned for May/June time frame.
Q2 When is Ruckus releasing the R760 ? Does recommending 6E made sense considering 6GHz band use is still not open for use in most countries?
The R760 is planned for April/May release Local availability will be subjected to in-country type approval. Its true 6GHz use will need to clear regulatory barrier But that should not stop you for recommending R760 in certain uses cases. The R760 can also be deployed with dual 5GHz along with the 2.4GHz radio.
Q3. Its great that Storm Control is now supported. Any recommended best practice values can be provided?
There is actually no "best-practice" values for the storm control. It varies from customer to customer, depending on the network environment, usage patterns, application usages .. One good practice is once configured - continue to monitor the network over a period of time and observe peak, non-peak hours and then tweak the settings when needed.
