All large sofware deployments will need to be done on the master image, connected to a switch. Typically images I create/deploy are 20GB in size. You can't deploy this, even down the fastest wireless connection. Once the client is configured, you can get away with small updates like to Adobe Reader, Flash, Windows Updates etc..
How do you manage large deployments of software, Office, Adobe, operating systems, updates and the like? Do you still do this over the wireless, I can’t imagine how this would work for 1500 laptops
