Wireless - Standalone to Managed
I've got a school that currently only has 1 simple mobile AP and I want to move them on a bit to help the teachers out (over the heads perception of the need for this BTW).
Now I could suggest my past plan of 1 £50 AP/class (total £250) but I can anticipate next year that we could end up with a lot of laptops and then if they ended up with a bank of 30-40, 1 AP/class wouldn't cut it anymore and I'd be looking to redo the whole place again with a managed solution. (or adding another one/class :eek:)
So what I'm thinking is suggesting buying a single ZoneFlex AP with leftovers of this years money that could probably handle the whole of the junior area with the current 15 laptops (inc using the old AP as well).
(And then I'd get more and a controller if/when they buy a load of laptops)
But - do they operate OK as standalone APs? Anyone tried one out in the mode?
