Good evening all
I was looking for some advice/opinions please. I have seen similar posts put they are a couple of years old and I'm wondering if people's experiences or opinions have changed in that time?
We are shortly moving into a location that is a 'landscraper', only two floors but they are pretty large. Density of occupancy could be in the region of 800 5ghz clients per floor, and will need in the region of 40 APs per floor depending on what the surveys come back with. So we are looking at 20mhz channels.
The vast majority of our traffic is O365, Teams etc with local internet break out, so the amount of local LAN traffic is minimal. There will be two active/active 1gbps WAN connections.
We are looking at having some element of future proofing and are investigating the possibility of mgig switches (MS350?) and MR57 APs (currently using MR56 throughout the rest of the estate). Our current laptops do not support wireless 6e but I would expect future devices to.
Has anyone done anything similar, I appreciate this kit is relatively new so might not be widely used, or have any thoughts on whether we would be better spending on additional APs? I suspect the that traffic generated at present would not require Mgig technology, but it would be a shame to buy ms225 or ms250 switches and then have to move to MS350 or similar down the line.
Any opinions and advice gratefully received.
