WhyReboot is offering a free year of WaaS (WiFi-as-a-Service) with the purchase of select Ruckus Wave 2 Access Points (APs). That, the company says, is a savings of $150 on average per AP, which doesn’t even include the savings from the cost of the controller or additional support licenses.
This offer also includes WhyReboot Ruckus Gold Support, now available to WhyReboot customers thanks to WhyReboot’s status as a Ruckus Gold Support Partner (GSP).
WhyReboot’s WaaS Dashboard provides a “single pane of glass” view for management. Every site is managed from a portal within a single portal—no disparate sites or VPN required. It also includes full Ruckus controller capabilities. Based off the Ruckus Virtual Smartzone, WhyReboot WaaS features a High Scale (vSZ- H) carrier-grade WLAN controller, providing the flexibility to manage complex network architectures for networks of practically any scale.
The company also says there’s no hardware to install and the service is automatically updated—the latest stable code is always running on APs
This introductory offer includes not only a year’s worth of WaaS and Ruckus Gold Support but also shipping of Ruckus APs and a limited lifetime warranty. Users can choose whether to renew WaaS for a fee to keep the cloud-based control and connectivity service functioning after the first year or, they can put the APs in standalone mode or add a physical controller.
“Whereas most other WaaS providers render their APs useless should the customer not renew service, WhyReboot’s solution is much more user-friendly,” said WhyReboot president Bjørn Jensen. “Customers can still use their APs should they choose not to renew WhyReboot WaaS.”
Ruckus has recognized WhyReboot with GSP enhanced certification that sets the company apart from other Ruckus Value Added Resellers (VARs), indicating the best pricing and highest levels of support available. WhyReboot customers now enjoy access to affordable enterprise-grade Ruckus switches and other wired and wireless network equipment, along with next-day service and a full year of white-glove customer support. WhyReboot’s status as a GSP solidifies and supports its commitment to stellar service.
