Customer Use Case for Link Aggregation with Ruckus Wireless APs

 

In today’s enterprise networks, wireless LAN has moved from a convenience to business critical. Employees are increasingly mobile and require pervasive high-speed network connectivity wherever they are in the workplace. The new tools being deployed to make employees more effective not only require mobility, but also consume more network resources.

This shift in enterprise networks is driving the continued evolution of wireless LAN technologies. Allowing customers to increase network capacity to deliver new ways of working is the key value in a Juniper Networks and Ruckus Wireless joint solution.

By leveraging the link aggregation features of EX Series switches in conjunction with the 802.11ac features of the Ruckus Wireless ZoneFlex R710 AP, customers can get the highest levels of performance out of their wireless network. The concurrent use of multiple Ethernet ports connected to a high-speed wired network ensures that a customer is protected from bottlenecks created at the AP uplink port as traffic demand peaks on the wireless network.

New wireless standards offer tremendous value to customers. The use of port grouping capabilities in the infrastructure guarantees that the performance gains enabled by these standards is not lost due to the wired network.
