Wireless Network Vendor Report
As you all know, I did a wireless networking vendor report (roughly) 3 years ago, and I am looking to do another one to give all vendors a fair test.
If it helps, here is a run down of my place
- Urban school, built in the 60s, every wall is steel mesh lined and solid concrete (and I do mean, EVERY wall).
- Over 90 rogue AP's within 200m radius of our school, all of which gets picked up by laptops etc (albeit very weak).
- Satellite uplinks to 8 other school on WAN which can induce some interference
- Permanent police presence less than 500m from our building (stationed at a firestation) and they use mobile satellites, portable airwave tetra repeaters, and surveillance vans a lot!
We are looking at running Ruckus N in the future (upgrading what we have now), but a fair test will go out to other vendors. I make it known now, that they will not be picked as the bosses are exceedingly happy with what we have, and want to upgrade on it, however I want to update my wireless test results.
So far on the list is is as follows
If there are any other vendors you would like up on here, please give me a heads up and I will add them too the list. My aim is to have a full test done by the end of Summer term, after which, the results will be emailed to the UK Directors of each company so they can see how they compare in an environment like mine (which tbh I think is as bad as it gets!)
