I work at a small University where are are moving from a hitspot infrastructure (just provide wireless access) to dense user support model in order to use wireless during classrrom instruction. It have a request to provide wirless coverage in a classroom for up to 30 users. I have installed a Lap-1142 in the hall just overisde of the classroom last semister which provided wireless access for about 12 students. The class enrollment has grown and now will need to support up to 30 users. I just install a C3560G-POE to provide 1GB uplink for the switch. The instructed stated she will require students to download pdf files and some streaming media during class and I was asked if the wireless will be able to support this requirement.
I am not sure how many concurrent users a LAP-1142 can support and if it can can it support streaming media for 30 users. How would I go about testing this senairio? How can one test AP throughput? How do I ensure it will work during class with having to place another AP within the classroom?
Thank you for your help.
