Wireless Design Validation


I wanted some opinions to see if my wireless AP layout for this particular is correct or not.

AP's: Cisco 3502i's

Deployment: 802.11a/n

Site Dimensions: 323.04 ft x 521.48 ft.

Spacing of AP's: anywhere from 30 - 50 ft depending on walls'.

Tool used: Airmagnet Planner.

Site: typical clinic, dry wall


I circled the area where I believe I am correct.

Attached is the drawing

Thank You

I do hope you've got a WLC

I do hope you've got a WLC because the APs deployed is very, very dense and I think it's a waste of AP resources.


What kind of walls do you have?  Did you "scale" the map before you do a wireless site survey?  What power are the APs on?  What data rates did you configure the APs to use?

They are dry wall and yes I

They are dry wall and yes I scaled the map correctly.

In the survey I set the AP's at 25 mW on 802.11an.  802.11g will be disabled so for 802.11a, I will go off the 7925G deployment guide for data rates.

I have update the ap

I have update the ap placement.  Apparently the scale was off a bit.  The requirements have changed for this site, they just want data on 802.11n using 5GHz.

Am I on the right path on AP placement?
