We are currently looking at moving our office to another location where we will be combining with a few other companies to grow to 1500 users. We of course have several consultants telling us what we need to do but the one that really got me was the network design.
The building we are moving to is 4 stories tall and the consultant wants to put 180 access points in. I don't understand the reasoning for this number of AP's. The building in not that big and it is a relatively simple design not to mention that it is going to be an open concept structure when finished. No offices...no cubes.
I need to prove to these people that the consultant is NUTS!!! for putting the many AP's in the building.
I am sure that we will have a fair amount of people using wireless but surely not so many that we need 180 ap's. They tell me they are putting an ap every 4 feet....
any help would be greatly appreciated.
