After a site survey the number of 1131's is 50% more than our vendor initially recommended, even though they had the floor plans and construction info (concrete building). I understand N AP's have better coverage/penetration. Is it easy for the vendor to re-model using N? And does N provide better coverage - thus fewer AP's?
Thanks for the follow-up. We are still in planning/ordering stage and their site survey indicated +50% more AP's than initially quoted via their estimating software, as such was interested if a different A/P would reduce this #.
Just to add a touch to the great info from our friend Leo (+5 points here Leo :) This discrepency does show the need for real "site surveys". The general thought on "N" performance is improved throughput moreso than improved coverage.
I thought that these presentations were excellent in explaining the "N" characteristics, especially the testing results! Have a look;
I'm suspecting the vendor wasn't able to use the 1140 for site survey because the autonomous IOS for the 1140 has not yet been released by Cisco. I'm guessing an 1130 (or other model) instead was used.
There is no decent recommendation here (from me). But if I was to play it safe with my finance, I'd stick to the original number before the "50% more" figure, however, I wouldn't hold my breathe against the accuracy. Instead, prepare contingency measures and be ready to purchase and deploy more APs in a case-to-case basis or when you see fit for more.
