As per 9.8 LCS release notes, it clearly suggests that 9.8 is needed for SPoT. Take a look at below link - http://www.connectdata.fr/files/docum...
Highlights of this Release
ZoneFlex software release 9.8 provides Enterprises, HotZone Operators and Managed Service Providers a higher performing, more reliable , and easier to deploy and use way of providing wireless access to diverse groups of users across multiple locations
The few features and enhancements in this release include:
• Support for ZoneFlex R700
• Application Recognition and Control
• Guest Access Improvements
• Smart Positioning Technology (SPoT) Support
I also checked in 9.7 what's new document and there is NO mention of SPoT so be assured that 9.8 & above is needed for SPot to work
if still in doubt, please check with your Ruckus Wireless SE in your region.
