WIRELESS NETWORK INFORMATION
- If cart access points are removed and placed randomly around the campus the user performance could suffer. For instance, the cart access point is removed and placed in a wing of the building to cover 8 classrooms. Users trying to connect to this access point on the edge of the wireless cell could be operating on a very low signal and could experience dropouts and slowness. It would also make the other users closer to the access point experience poor performance because of the nature of a shared network. The access points were placed on each cart to be able to give the wireless cart computers the best performance possible.
- It will be very difficult for the Service Desk to support a site where the access points have been removed from the carts.
- If an access point is removed from a cart and placed in a classroom, it would be extremely difficult to physically locate it if it fails and falls off of the network, especially if the TLC that had placed them around the campus moves to a different site or leaves the school system.
- When your school does go to a campus-wide wireless overlay, the cart AP's will be relocated to a permanent location in the ceiling. At that time it would be very difficult for the installers to try to find the cart access points to install them if they are scattered around your school.
