Dear Team, Greetings to all Meraki people !! As we have an interesting scenario here to work with, let me just share my idea and design as follows. As we can see there are 2 types of salon structure here as the salon A,B shares the same structure and salon C,D shares the same. 90’ x 68’ overall Salons A & B are each 56’ x 34’ Salons C & D are each 34’ x 34’ Ceilings are 14’ tall Therefore, I suggest the usage of MR52 (4x4 MIMO, wave 2, 2.5Gbps max frame rate) or MR53 (4x4 MIMO, wave 2, 2.5Gbps max frame rate) series access points for the high density usage as total 600+ devices are in the area. For a scenario like this usually we need to do a predictive wireless heatmap to understand the wireless premises, coverage, weak points etc. However, out of experience i suggest to place 4 MR devices in salon A&B, and 3 MR devices in salon C&D. Also suggest to enable the features below, 1. MDM (as its a salon people will walk in with BYOD). 2. Layer 7 application control and traffic shaping (you can control the types of apps in your network, and do traffic shaping also). 3. Embedded location analytics reporting and device tracking . 4. Global L7 traffic analytics reporting per network, per device, & per application (you can generate complete monitoring reports for your network). 5. MR with Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) and Beacon support can also track and monitor the Bluetooth deices and Bluetooth network in your area. This is however a predicted network design and for exact results I prefer to go with a wireless survey. Thanks a lot folks, hope it was somehow useful !! love Meraki !! 🙂 Regards, Varun Cheloor.
