I am doing an install for a new building for my company. We have 2 office floors and 19x 2602's. They will be switched through a WLC-5508. I am looking to find a best practices guide on how to deploy them (location wise). For instance, should they be spaced certain distances from each other, at least X feet away from walls/obstacles, at least X high off the floor, in a triangular pattern, etc etc. Anyone know where to find documentation such as this?
Each one of our floors are rectangular in shape, around 20k square feet, have mechanical and elevator shafts in the center of the floors. So it is a large squarish oval. Nine AP's per floor, I thought about placing them along the center line of the oval, but in sort of a zig-zag pattern, not in a straight line along the perimeter. They would all be ceiling mounted. I am looking for any info to let me know if that is a good plan, or how I should change it to confirm to best practices.
We are not doing voice, just data, but we are running the entire office through wireless. There will be around 75-80 people per floor, all using laptops on wireless. I am also making sure I keep the AP's a few feet away from fluoresent light balasts.
Either you do voice or just data only, I recommend you do site survey before and after. Make sure you leave some slacks of cables so that you can re-position APs after the post-deployment site survey. Lowest SNR for a good solid connection is 20~25dB due to the fact that you need some fade margine, so perform site survey with that in mind.
Those lighting fixtures are not big of deal if they are recessed and mounted above access points. Bigger concerns are firedoors, leaded walls, elevator columns, etc.
Remember that a site survey after the deployment is very important for a good wireless network.

This is the start of a display filter cross reference between Wireshark and OmniPeek.
The 1st installment is a table of advanced filters. More filters will be added as time allows.
It is a living doc, so check back for changes every so often

The script should be completely self explanatory.
