Ruckus Planner

powered by AirMagnet

Why should you use Ruckus Planner?

Ruckus AP’s are easier for planning.. Resellers can verify with 3 rd party tool

Verify with the tool to save costs for properly designed


Money and time may be wasted on implementing inappropriate hardware incorrectly

The wireless LAN may never work properly resulting in frustrated users

Help Resellers to validate



What must you consider before any WLAN design?

Understand the business needs of the wireless


What will the WLAN be used for?

Bandwidth & Roaming requirements

Determine signal coverage and control

Where RF coverage should and should not be

Understand and meet any security requirements

Regulatory requirements

Type and classification of data being transferred


Ruckus Planner Powered by AirMagnet

Specifically Designed with Ruckus Antennas
