We need your advise for above WI-FI project.
Our customer wants to use Meraki AP for their environment. You can find the floor plan below. Also, there will be max concurrent 200 user that connected the WIFI. Most of the users are software developers. Others are standard office workers. They will not stream any type of videos and they do not share or download big size file over the WIFI Network . How many AP do we need or can you advise how can we start the project with the right Meraki AP models.
It is recommended to consider 30 clients per AP, but in your case, you can consider 60 clients per AP, that is, between 3 and 4 APs. But the best thing would be to carry out a site survey to evaluate the wireless spectrum on site, it would be more accurate.
If you are a Cisco partner, you can perform a predictive site survey with Yagna:
I suggest you invest in site survey software, like Ekahau.
I know that It's not a High-density environment but this document can help you.
I think that's a lot of APs in my opinion, it would make more sense if it was a high-density environment.
It would be ideal to know the scale of the floor plan.
In the large area in the bottom left, there's what seems to be about 88 seating places for according to the OP may be software developers. This seems to be a rather large open space, with many devices. Assuming each person has 1 WiFi enabled device only, we'll be looking at about 11 devices per AP. So there might be a lot of air traffic going on.
Then there are meeting rooms; a rule of thumb is to always put the AP where the WiFi is needed. In meeting rooms, you'll alway want to be close to an AP. One is placed in the middle of three meetings rooms with 4 others supporting the surrounding area, which - from the looks of it - seems to be a form of recreational area.
In the area at the top, the topology will also support roaming between corridors, as you will always want to place an AP at corners. That way, as you walk towards a corner your wireless device will have roamed to an AP that is visible down two corridors.
Now, the unknown part here is the large area to the right with the number "6". I can't see what the drawing says, so I'm assuming it's some large open space - perhaps an lunch area or storage. Thus the single AP.
Above "6" there also seems to be a wider corridor with meeting rooms next to. AP's are place again considering roaming along corridors, as well as ensuring coverage for the meeting rooms at the bottom right (under "6").
Perhaps, the two left most APs in the bottom row could be left out.
I'm sorry but I still think an exaggerated amount of APs, in my opinion, and experience would be better to do a site survey (even predictive).
Eyeballing it from a floor plan is one rung up from chucking them anywhere and hoping for the best. You should look in to getting at least a predictive wireless survey done which can at least take the requirements and variables (such as wall materials/glass/etc..) and generate a 'proposed' deployment
