Coverage Maps

I know in pre-4.x WCS, the coverage maps didn't take into consideration AP's on floors above or below - has this been addressed in 4.2 or 5.x?

Also, are the 1131 AP's supported in an upright orientation instead of just the ceiling mount orientation?

Re: Coverage Maps

As far I know this feature is implemented in RRM to determine the Channel and power assignment. But there is a proposal underway to impelment this feature.

FWIW, RRM is fully 3-D aware since all it cares about is how an AP (radio, to be precise) hears its neighbors. Re: 1131 orientation - it makes most sense to mount these on the ceiling given the antenna radiation pattern that these have. We've seen a few sites mounting them on the walls/pillars/etc but it doesn't make much sense unless you have a very specific requirement. Alternatively, you can consider the 1242s which have several mounting options (with external antenna support).

Re: Coverage Maps

Thanks for the info. The 1131's will be used in the office area's and mounted in an upright position on top of file cabinets. >.<

The 1242's will be used in the manufacturing area's.
