HI,

when planning a wireless implementation is there a calculation for how many access point a/b/g or n to use so the whole area have coverage (overlapping).   Aswell as the what channel are available in each standard.

Thanks

This is for outdoor WiFi. But for indoor it gets more complicated because there are water pipes, concrete and people. Basically just keep in mind that water and concrete block signals (and think of people as walking bags of water). You do have to stagger your channels so the access pointers dont overlap each other.

Most WLAN controllers, Cisco & Aruba for example have a built in planner.  Just input a floor map and run through the matrix.
