I'm conteplating taking on a project to install a wlan for a 70,000 sq ft hall. The second requirement is that it will need to support a couple hundred simultaenous users. My question is, what would be the most cost effective solution for such a wlan? I was thinking using a 4100 with a few APs. What do you guys recommend. Also something that wouldn't be a pain to configure. I'm farily new to wireless on such a scale..

thank you.

Hi,


Try AP1100. It uses Lightweight Access Point Protocol (LWAPP), and can be managed by Cisco wireless LAN controllers. It's fairly easy to configure & manage. Comes with built-in antenna.

OR, try AP1200 Series with LWAPP image if you need to use external antenna. This model can be ordered with IOS image. Make sure the product no has 'LAP', e.g AIR-LAP1231G-x-K9.

The no of APs will determine model of WLAN Controller to use as it goes by no of APs.
