I've been asked to try and come up with a wireless solution for a mid-sized apartment complex. A previous company came in a few months ago, and failed by trying to use cheap equipment, and forgot to use their heads first. Anyway...
There is 1 front office which will be the head-end of the WLAN, and then 10 seperate apartment buildings A through J. Each apartment building has 3 floors, 16 users per floor, so 48 users per building. If I put up and antenna at the front office, and one antenna for each apartment building, then I connected a wireless bridge to each antenna, and then access points to the bridges with a base station at the head-end, would I be in jepoardy of saturating the 2.4GHz spectrum at any point along the way???
I haven't had any experience in dealing with overlapping wireless signals. Are there great risks having 10 simultanious wireless streams in such close quarters? I have a detailed ASCII layout of the apartment complex I can post if I can make it look right on here.
Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
I've made the ASCII Layout of the apartment complex available online. The URL is:
