Handling Transient Users

Transient users—those who briefly connect to the network—pose a challenge for network management. Ruckus tackles this issue using statistical methods to delay the AP’s associations with transient clients. By selectively responding to devices, Ruckus minimizes airtime wastage and improves overall network efficiency2.

Airtime Decongestion

Airtime congestion can lead to performance degradation. Ruckus employs airtime decongestion to limit management frame exchanges between APs and clients. This feature ensures efficient airtime utilization, resulting in better Wi-Fi speeds and user experiences3.

Probe Suppression

Probe requests flood the network as devices search for available APs. Ruckus manages this by allowing client DHCP, DNS, and ARP traffic prior to authentication. This approach ensures that devices can connect seamlessly while maintaining security4.
