I've been tasked with setting up a temporary wireless network for a conference. I've done this event in the past with various older 802.11b technologies, but the con keeps getting more people with wifi devices. Out of the 500 people in the venue, I'd estimate half might be using wifi at one time, as a peak.
What kind of hardware would one recommend for the following parameters?
- roaming from AP to AP
- no auth
- A firewall will be in place at the Internet end
- perhaps per client rate limiting (all clients get X except for one other group who get 2X or unlimited).
- low admin while running
I'm familiar with some of the Cisco 1200 series, but not too sure on the newer products that are out.
Recommendations on documents and hardware are welcome. Thanks
