Wi-Fi networks have long been prized for their convenience, allowing employees to seamlessly transition between their offices, boardrooms, and other areas within your work environment, as well as providing a simple option to provide connectivity to guests and other visitors.

However, even wireless connections require wired components in the form of switches, which allow you to join multiple network devices (such as all your office computers) together into one local area network (LAN). To improve efficiency and performance and create a seamless, easily managed Wi-Fi experience, many organizations opt for joint solutions that provide both switches and access points from a single vendor.

The Benefits of Choosing a Joint Solution

There are many reasons clients choose Mirazon-recommended solutions designed with products from Ruckus (now a part of CommScope). These high-quality solutions are specifically designed to take care of all your Wi-Fi and switching, allowing you to streamline your network operations and easily keep an eye on things using a single-pane-of-glass console. You always know exactly what is going on with your network, and our friendly team of experts is always standing by in case you need a bit of help. That means you spend less of your team’s valuable time maintaining and troubleshooting your network and more time on your core business.

Ruckus’ robust wired portfolio enables organizations to, in turn, enjoy stable, reliable, high-speed Wi-Fi that is both easy to manage and able to meet their needs. By consolidating your entire Wi-Fi network to a single vendor, you can co-terminate your support renewals and consolidate your networking costs into one, easy-to-manage bill. This not only reduces the amount of time spent on paperwork but also supports budgetary predictability.

Designing a Joint Solution: Our Process

Our team of Wi-Fi experts begins by evaluating your network’s workload and connectivity options, including determining how many sites your network needs to cover and which sites and employees need to be able to access which areas of your new network.

During the planning phase, we also complete a wireless site survey, which helps us determine the optimal placement for access points and determine how each site’s building materials and floorplan will affect Wi-Fi performance. We also determine how many users and user devices the network needs to comfortably support at any one time so we can size your network appropriately and create a comprehensive solution that has been specially tailored to meet the unique needs of your organization.

Depending on your priorities and any budgetary or time constraints, we can either upgrade your entire solution (both wired and wireless components) at the same time or take a phased approach.

Ruckus Makes Networking Easy Every Step of the Way

Every networking device has its own management methods and language, which makes some network administrators hesitant to change providers. As such, too many organizations end up sticking with one brand out of a sense of familiarity, even if those products and services aren’t ideally suited to the company’s needs.

Sticking with a provider who isn’t meeting your needs or doesn’t provide the products and functionality you need just because you don’t want to learn a new system can impact employee productivity (because using less than ideal tools can increase how long tasks take to complete) and affect your bottom line.

Ruckus and Mirazon address this challenge by making migrating to and managing a new network as easy as possible, and we’re always here to offer support and answer your questions so you can get the most out of your network.
