Coverage or Capacity - Making the Best Use of 802.11n

  • Meeting the Need for High Performance and Ubiquitous Coverage with the Proliferation of Mobile Devices in the Enterprise
  • Juniper Networks
Enterprises adopting the new 802.11n standard have learned that there is no "one-size-fits-all" 802.11n solution.  Real-world deployments demand trade-offs between range and performance. How do you maximize coverage at the lowest cost and how do you maximize capacity while "future proofing" the network for voice and location services. This white paper examines two different strategies for enterprise wireless LAN deployment and discusses how to best take advantage of the flexibility built into the 802.11n standard.

Fairly technical but written in plain English, this useful document talks you through strategies for making optimum use of 802.11n wireless LANs. It explains how the 802.11n high-speed RF standard offers a number of options for tuning Wi-Fi performance characteristics to strike the best possible balance between wireless capacity and coverage, and it offers tips for taking advantage of them. The capacity/coverage balance is now more important than ever, given the huge influx of consumer devices onto enterprise networks and the low-latency nature of the multimedia applications they run.

You'll also learn Juniper's take on how to best exploit multiple spatial streams supported by 802.11n and why the company thinks that three- and four-spatial-stream solutions on the market today aren't worth the premium they demand.
