The SmartZone™ 144 Data Plane appliance (SZ144-D) is a wireless LAN data plane appliance, that comes in physical form factor with four (4) 1Gbps and four (4) 10Gbps ports. Made to work seamlessly with Ruckus SmartZone network controllers (vSZ-E, SZ144), the SmartZone Data Plane appliance (SZ144-D) enables secure tunneled WLANs from Ruckus APs while minimizing CAPEX spending and maximizing Wi-Fi deployment flexibility and scale.
SZ144-D appliance benefits businesses that have leaner IT departments with limited virtualization expertise or that wish to further simplify deployments.
