WS5100 / RFS6000 / AP300 Planning
« on: September 02, 2016, 10:21:21 AM »
Dear forumers,

I'm a very newbie in wireless networks, so sorry for my noob questions.

I need do cover a large industrial building, for a 3 day long exhibiton. The building is a big one airspace without walls.
I have 6 Cisco wireless IP phone, that needs a connection (they have a separated vlan), the guests have a "guest" vlan.
I have a WS5100, a RFS6000, and 16 AP300

* How many clients can connect into an AP300 accessport?

* Can I prirorise the clients on different vlans? For example, the IP phones requires a free connection, and free (priorised) bandwidth while they are roaming between AP-s. So the X Vlan, witch contains the IP phones, and organizer's laptops needs the best bandwidth, and the guest's can use the remaining bandwidth/resources.

* An AP300 how much area can coverage (in max bandwidth (>~48 Mbit), and half bandwidth (~>25 Mbit))? In my friend's warehouse I metered: I get the max bandwidth within 25-35 m, in 40-45m I get the half bandwidth, and over 45m I mesasue 11 Mbps. Thats correct?

* The last question: in WS5100 I can rename AP-s/radios, but I can not do at RFS6000. Is it correct, or I do it someting wrong?

WS5100 is an old controller. Don't use it. RFS6000 is a newer controller use it.
But make sure that the RFS6000 firmware is old enough to support AP300

Yeah, I found the last firmware for RFS6000, which supports AP300. :) WS5100 is an old device, but works :)
If I choice RFS6000, how many client can connect into an AP300? How much area can I coverage with an AP300?
