 This breakout session will host an open discussion around common wireless deployment issues, and best practices and tools for troubleshooting them. We will briefly describe how wireless works, and explore 2.4 vs 5ghz, hub technology, and why marketing numbers don't always match up with real-world performance. We will also take a hard look at N v AC-W1 v AC-W2, mgmt vs control vs data packets, and channel assignments. Our session will explain why to move away from 2.4 and focus on 5ghz, how to disable older data rates (and why that is important), how and why to limit the number of SSIDs, how to perform a spectrum analysis, and site survey tools to use.
