Managed Wireless - what have you got and what did it cost?
We've had a few people in to do site surveys with a mind to provide (nearly) full-school coverage for laptop trolleys. We do have a couple of favourites, but I'm wondering if we're getting value for money. I've read through the managed wireless threads, but would really like to know...
What system are you using and for how many aps?
How much did it cost? (if you don't mind - ballpark figures are fine)
How does it perform? - brilliant/ok/poor
Would you buy it again?
Ideally we'd go with a Cisco solution because the presales work and survey guys have been very thorough and people we've talked to (off our own back, not "happy customers") are very pleased with the performance, but I'm concerned about cost/value for money.
Edit for more info:
Surveys suggest we'd require 18APs and a controller for decent coverage for trolleys and supplementary coverage for staff access.
We have a single site where most buildings are single-storey.
We currently have two trolleys of 16 laptops each and one of 10, but chances are if they're successful we'll be getting a couple more trolleys (we don't have room for more IT rooms). Assuming trolleys are adopted enthusiastically I'd expect them to all be in use every other lesson at least and this could be anywhere around the site depending on room/timetable.
Usage will be general network use - file browsing, internet, same as on the wired network.
