    Question 25 PC lab on Cisco LWAPP system?

    We have a Cisco LWAPP system with two WLC-4400 series controllers, 115 access points (mostly LAP1242AG and LAP1131AG), and (as of this moment) 650 clients connected. Clients are mainly students' personal devices.

    Due to renovations, one of our largest computer labs is moving and my supervisor is depending on wireless to avoid having to run cable. I am highly skeptical. These lab computers are the most heavily used computers on campus. They connect via RDP to a terminal server. They will all end up on one access point, I suspect, even if we put multiple access points within the same range. I think that this will produce severely unsatisfactory performance. It's not merely a WiFi throughput issue, though that's certainly a real issue, it's also a matter of how many clients the AP must process.

    Has anyone successfully run 25 RDP clients on a single Cisco LWAPP access point?

    Any thoughts or comments?

    Wouldn't recommend it, wire all the way otherwise you will run into issues later on.

    Yup, that's exactly what I said.

    When it runs badly I bet I'm going to get blamed for it.

    I can't see 25 Clients purely using RDP being a big problem so ling as they are the only users of that access point.

    Definitely not on 802.11g access points.

    Cisco AP's will support large numbers of clients, but it's a simple math problem. You have 25 clients, and 54Mbps of throughput, at half duplex.

    Will they all connect? Yes.

    Will the performance be satisfactory? No.
