Cabling best practice
Posted on 2014-03-07
Up till now I have installed wireless networks in the following manner:
two to three PoE Access Points per floor (level) and back haul Ethernet down
to the ground or basement floor, all hooked up to a central PoE switch.
Today I have to write up a quote for a larger infrastructure :
Five floors with 7 PoE APs per floor
What is the best practive in terms of cabling the 35 PoE APs ?
Same approach as summarized above, or is it better to have
smaller PoE switches on each floor and a single back haul
Ethernet down to the basement central switch ?
Thanks for your opinions & recommendations on this matter
