Looking at a ZD 1200 with 7 APs. I'm comparing to an existing Meraki install with 5 APs. The latter is easy - $100 per AP/year for support/updates. What would be the cost on the Ruckus solution? I believe I need licensing on the ZD (is this one-time or recurring?) and then a support contract to access firmware updates. I see I can buy Ruckus from various vendors online, but I assume licensing and support is handled direct. Knowing the cost without a lengthy sales pitch would be helpful in comparing the two options.
1) hardware (AP + controller + accessries) 2) Lic (you need to buy 2 per AP lic) 3) Support pack/AMC/ Recurring cost - this is optional however good to have in case of important and critical install. if you don;t take this, you loose on advance replacement, software upgrade and Technical support from Ruckus and you are on your own with kit. 4) Implementation cost: this is billed by partner who does the install depending on scope of work and type of install.
Hmm. Not even a hint? We don't have a reseller, generally deal with used equipment. I hate having to pick up the phone for this info in the 21st century. 7 APs, ZoneDirector 1200, licensing and premium support, this must be a line item someone can quote no?
