i want to know how many user cisco AP1040 autonamous system support ? can it handle 100 user at the same time ? if yes is the speed will be acceptable ? i want the optimum number of user to get acceptable speed .
The rule of thumb is around 25 users per AP. Now this can increase and decrease depending on the application that will be used on the wireless. For example, web and email traffic, you are safe maybe up to 35-40 per AP. If you have voice, maybe 14 and if your doing large file transfers or video files, maybe less than 10.
Wireless is half duplex so if you have one user connected at 54mbps, the actual throughout that client can see is half... So around 27mbps. Now every other user you add, you would divide 27mbps by the number if users. The access point is like a hub, so would you have 100 users on a bunch of hubs that are daisy chained together. The access point Ethernet or gigabit port is your bottleneck.
Difficult question to answer. many factors affects your wireless signal:
1. AP model type;
2. Signal strength;
3. Channel assignments;
4. Height of the AP deployed;
5. Vertical and Horizontal azimuth of the antennaes;
6. Size and shape of the room deployed;
Cisco recommends or thumb of rule is 25 clients per AP. But this value is subject to "debateable" in regards to the type of traffic involved.
If, for instance, the type of traffic is mostly emails, web browsing, etc ... then the value can go up to 35 clients per AP. However, if the type of traffic is video then the value is around 8 to 10 clients per AP.
well every one is right its better you look for recommented supported number per AP as if you increase the number the performance issues will start to increace also check for capacity plaining it will help you to narrow down the number of users per AP.
