Historically, many Wi-Fi networks have been designed to provide basic coverage throughout the desired service area. However, the rapid innovation and adoption of wireless technologies in the marketplace has elevated Wi-Fi networking within the enterprise from a convenience based overlay to existing wired networks to the primary network connectivity method.
Innovations and rapid growth of sophistication level of wireless devices have led to an explosive growth of Wi-Fi connected devices. It is common for most users today to carry multiple devices with networking capabilities to accommodate various needs. Spurred by end user demand, enterprises are realizing that many consumer-oriented computing platforms can offer tremendous benefits to their business and are embracing these platforms for use within the organization.
The increasing demands to leverage Wi-Fi as the primary network access method and to support the large influx of mobile devices has brought with them new requirements to effectively design and deploy high-capacity wireless networks. Many organizations are quickly realizing that existing Wireless LAN (WLAN) deployments are no longer adequate to meet these growing demands, that just signal strength is not an indication of the quality of the wireless link.
Adopting the right approach means thoroughly assessing network requirements and designing a WLAN that meets the current and anticipated capacity demands. Wi-Fi networks must be designed to deal with the quantity of devices and hardware capabilities of the client population, the applications they are running and their mobility and throughput requirements. Simply adding more access points is usually ineffective and will likely result in creating more problems that solutions, often necessitating new network planning and design.
The design of high-density Wi-Fi networks must be guided by the radio systems engineering principles which are used for design of Distributed Antenna Network: spectral efficiency considerations, frequency planning, signal-to-noise ratio considerations, antenna patterns, regulatory requirements and much more.
While demand for high-capacity/high-density Wi-Fi networks continues to grow at an astonishing rate, many organizations remain ill equipped to evaluate proper network infrastructure requirements and predict complex interactions between access points in the presence of a dense, dynamically changing, and often complex user population.
