Ruckus SZ software currently has two recommended releases depending on what customer is looking for:

  • Stability release: For customers looking for solid reliability but not needing latest hardware/feature support
  • Technology release: For customers looking for latest hardware/features

The 'latest features' release is the one that uses the customers as QA. If you can't have bugs in your environment, stick to the stability release.

Dear @Squozen,

Thank for the great answer, but could you confirm me which one is better for my new Ruckus SZ144 model?

Best Regards,

I'd choose the stable version. If you have a second controller and a lab environment, that's where you test the technology release.

I have two WLC running as cluster. I choose to use technology release but for best practice, could we use GA, GD or MR release? 

thank in advance.
