- Silver, 250 points or more
So far, we have been told to continue to use the guidelines for 802.11b/g when designing for 802.11n.
However, there are, no doubt, additional considerations that we will need to account for.
* If the coverage quality is increased with 802.11n, does this mean that we can place access points further apart and still get the same RF coverage?
* When more than one 2.4Ghz band is used on an access point, how will this impact legacy clients?
* How will the use of more than on 2.4Ghz band on a single access point affect co-channel interference among adjacent 802.11n access points?
* In an environment with a mix of both 802.11a/b/g and 802.11n (either an internal mix or foreign APs), are there any considerations to ensure that the different technologies play nicely together?
* When directional antennae are needed (for example when servicing long aisles in warehouse/manufacturing facilities), what options exist? Would three YAGI's per radio be required for indoor VoWiFi? etc.
* With the increased bandwidth, does this affect the maximum recommended number of users on the access point?
* When mixing legacy (b or g) clients on the N network, what considerations should we use?
* What sort of survey tools are recommended by Cisco? (Presumably AirMagnet).
This is just a limited list that comes to mind.
I have registered for the AirMagnet webinar in hopes of getting some additional insight, but am interested in Cisco's own recommendations.
If anyone is aware of new information available on the Cisco website, any links to this information would be appreciated.
