So I ordered a few R600 UNLEASHED APs for a client site that is having tremendous interference issues (4 story building with multiple tenants per floor) with their current APs (Sophos JUNK).
I find it frustrating, if not laughable that the Unleashed APs are not capable of PER RADIO SSID assignment.
In a typical SMB deployment (or a town home or cul-de-sac for that matter), there are typically multiple (sometimes dozens) of APs in close proximity, but not controlled by the customer. This means that 2.4 channels 1, 6 and 11 are almost always full of interference and noise.
Most SMB customers still require some connectivity on 2.4, for the sake of legacy devices, even if it is saturated and slow.
Putting the primary WLAN/SSID on 5GHz is usually the best practice.
Lastly, when an SSID is being broadcast on BOTH 2.4 and 5, the connection usually ends up landing on 2.4.
Why in the world would Ruckus decide to force unleashed SSIDs to be broadcast on both radios?
Somebody has their head up their backside.
