I need some Wireless recomendations.
I am doing a study in a company that has aproximately 40 APs, which 25 are currently Lightweight being
managed by a WLC 2125. The rest of the APs are autonomous (another WLC is coming).
The problem is that the wireless network has been grown as needed, without any control.
Therefore, the location of the APs are not ideal and all the APs have the default power.
The problem with the wireless connetion is that the clients don't have signal, or they can't connect from time
to time from different locations throughout the campus.
We have only 5 SSIDs which has to be seen from everywhere, so all the APs handle all the SSIDs.
Each SSID has its own requirements.
What we have done so far, is using the AirMagnet and a Cisco Wireless card captures the signals and lower the
power from several APs, so that we don't get much signal in areas where we don't need to see the SSIDs.
We have adjusted the channels, so that we use only channels 1, 6 and 11 minimizing overlapping between zones.
The APs are all families of 1142s and 1242s
The Wireless clients are Handhels, PCs, MACs and SmartPhones.
We also need to be sure that roaming works without problem, because there's going to be VoIP over Wireless soon.
We have seem to reduce the problem, but I'm looking for some pointers and some recommendations to leave this
Wireless network as it should.
Thank you All,
