I want to design the RFID tracking a big convention hall, which require around 300 AP for the 3 dimensional design. The AP are spread between 3 WLC. I have placed the AP so that I can get coverage from 3 AP in s single point. I would like to convert every alternate AP to Monitor mode for better tracking and better client load-balancing. Now my question is should I move all the Monitor mode AP to a single controller or for the client tracking the MSE uses the input from multiple controllers
I agree with Blake. I don't see any point putting your WAP (alternately or not) into monitor mode. I mean if you are afraid of channel interference then there are ways to mitigate this. Enable dynamic RRM, DCA and TPC. Disable 802.11b data rates and allow 802.11g.
If you really want to be "funky" then get 3500 or 3600.
Actually the network is already installed and I have come for supporting an event over here.. Roof is about 12 meters high and the AP 1250 and 1140 are used with external antennas.
My concern is AP can recive a better signal from the neighboring AP that it can provide to the clients. That is wher i thought of converting some neighboring AP to the monitor mode. Now I just want to make sure this change will not affect the TPC/DCA and the location tracking.
Should I continue to spread the AP across the WLC or keep all the monitor mode in single WLC and the other AP in other WLC
