New Wireless System Advice - First Steps
We're just taking the first steps in replacing our ageing wireless setup. I like to think I've done a fair bit of reading & research around the subject but thought I'd try to gather some specific opinions on exactly what kit (eg: AP & controller models, etc ...) people have installed and coping with the loads. So if you have any of the following systems and couple spare a minute or 2 to jot down which AP models & controllers you have and what sort of load they are coping with (classrooms full of laptops, lots of BYOD's, etc) that would be most helpful! In no particular order:
I guess I'm most interested in making sure that:
(a) We definitely end up with a system that can cope with the current & near future (3-5yrs) loads that we're expecting in a regular secondary school
(b) We're not paying over the odds for provisioning more than we need ... I realise it's hard to judge ...
Thoughts at the moment are:
(i) minimum 2x2:2 per AP's
(ii) gigabit connections for all AP's
(iii) g & n standards at least (a b optional)
Advice & details would be greatly appreciated ...
