If that is true, then our service provider needs to learn a bit more about wireless. The Cisco APs are among the "hottest" (highest transmit power) APs available. This is not compatible with a high density environment. In a high density environment, the need is for APs to be closer together and operating at lower power, to increase the overall capacity of the entire WLAN. If the transmit power is high and the APs are placed close together, the APs wind up interfering with each other and reducing the overall capacity of the WLAN. The more APs you put into the WLAN, the lower the capacity gained by each AP.

Bob, The Cisco AIR-AP1231G-A-K9 is the only unit our service provider, IDEAL Technology, would recommend for our type of high density configurations.
Disapprove. There is no need to purchase this equipment at this price. There are plenty of other solutions that are better and cost less (my own company's, for example). Cisco's equipment, even at the "discounted" $700 is absolutely the most expensive and lowest performance that you can buy.
