WIFI Question

We currently are a Ruckus company but we're looking at overhauling our network for the 2019 calendar year. New switches, APC units, and upgrading or moving to another wireless solution. When on a call with a vendor they mentioned moving to Aruba controllerless APs. Our environment consists of our main facility that has about 25 APs and 3 remote sites that have 3-4 APs. We currently run our Ruckus with two zone directors for HA. We're primary an HP company. Servers, switches, and now consider our WIFI. Do any of you have all three under HP / Aruba? If so is there some central management that would make managing all three products under one application? I think the vendor was trying to explain how HPE Systems Insight Manager could be used for all 3 products. Now our Ruckus environment just works. I inherited it but when we added WIFI to a new facility all I had to do was add the zone directors IP to the AP and approve the AP from web interface and assign it. So setup was a breeze. With these controllerless APs i'm assuming.. not so much. However we're talking less than 40 APs total.

Re: WIFI Question

I should take a look at Ubiquiti/Unifi equipment. Very easy to mange and no licences for their management software which is also free.
