I need clarification on Location tracking
I am putting in an 802.11b/g wireless network to provide good data throughput for wireless clients
I also have a functional requirement to locate Rogue APs. At present the Location tracking device is unable to accurately detect rogues as they were deployed for coverage only. The network operators are spending a lot of time investigating the threat that rogues are on the floor only to find they are outside the building
I need to justify the expenditure of placing APs on the perimeter so that it's easy to identify if a Rogue AP is internal or external. If it's internal I am not that concerned with the accuracy as this will be taken care of with a visit to site by the network security team to investigate.
The AP deployment will be more of a coverage deployment in the centre of the floor
And a location tracking deployment on the perimeter.
I am considering putting the APs in monitor mode as I believe the receive sensitivity is increased in this mode so I will not require as many APs on the perimeter.
Does this sound like a good approach?
Can this be achieved without placing APs on the perimeter and calibrating the Location Appliance?
