    I, and some other members on here will point you to Ruckus, they presented at the last conference to us, pricing is very impressive compared to big names, I am fairly safe to say that the controler for 25aps is not 5.7K in the Ruckus range, you will be very pleasently pleased with the costs. Give Mark at Net Ctrl a ring - 01473 281 211

    I need to get this finished now that I have a little spare time. I would like to talk to a user of a Cisco system if possible to get a bit of information. If this is you, please PM me or catch me on the EduGeek chat server.

    Starting this week we are having 20K's worth of wireless gear installed over our 2 sites / 7 buildings. The people doing it are pervasive networks. Supposedly it will be much better than the DLink Wireless AP's we had dotted about previously. ( I would point out they also regularly killed our network by causing dropped packets all over the place!).
    I will let you know how it performs once its all done and running!

    It will have been mentioned yes, there kit is intelligent and works around it and sorts itself out so you don't have to.

    Interesting. We are on the point of a new build for a joint 6th form and as we are RM CC3 (Stop it at the back!) we have had a brief on Trapeze. Centralised management of all switches thru a dedicated server. Intelligent APs and a software suite that allows control over all users woohoo! Think of a hotel/conference centre that offers secured managed walkin access. And 'guests' can be given leases by reception desk personnel and it can be timed, logged, directed and leases expire after set timings to suit. Multiple profiles so you could run staff, students, walk-in students, contractors all with differing profiles. Made me dizzy. Anybody got it? Anybody prices?

    What happens to your whole wireless network when that central box that controls them breaks?

    Depends how you have it set up, some have fault tolerance in them so it falls over to a second controller, or in some cases it goes down until you fix it. Another good reason not to just have a wifi network (well unless you have at a minimum 2 controllers in a redundant set-up!)

    Wireless Options

    It is well worth having a look at the new generation of wireless which works on single channel.

    This enables you to deploy without the headache of channel planning.

    The by product of single channel is that it controls access to the air, making it really efficient for large user numbers - logging in 30 laptops may be 10 times quicker.

    Leading exponents are Meru.

    Glad you have heard about us and will be happy to help if you need.
