Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "We paid for a three-year contract last year. I am not sure about what we paid. It is certainly less expensive than Meraki."
  • "The price is reasonable."
  • "The reason we picked Ruckus, in addition to our long-standing relationship with Ruckus, is pretty much that the RFS characteristics of it seem to be the best."
  • "We don't pay any licensing fees, we purchase them."
  • "This is a very expensive solution."
  • "The setup that I have at the moment does not require licensing, although I am not sure whether a bigger project will mean that I have to spend more."
  • "Not all of our clients can afford a fully corporate solution like Ruckus. But for many of our clients, pricing is the only factor that prevents them from choosing Ruckus, as we have found Ruckus to be a very suitable and reliable solution for integrating wireless access points to a company's network."
  • "Ubiquiti and Aruba Instant On are good for small businesses in terms of cost than Ruckus Wireless."
