Just curious if there is an Application that can assist in deployment of a highly dense area that calculates the fresnel zone for the area. I have about 40 APs to cover a highly dense area and using 30 degree antennas to isolate the coverage to an area. There of course will be channel design. Something like Visual RF? I am going to try to use the Aruba Outdoor RF Designer as an indoor application to see if this helps. And of course I can to standard calculations myself, but if there is a utility out there to make life easier I am all about that. I dont remember if the outdoor just includes the outdoor APs and MSRs or if it has the 204, 214 and 224 APs. I found a downtilt frensel calculator which helped with the calculations. Just looking for something like Visual RF or the Outdoor designer for indoor dense applications.

Honestly, if you are indoors, you should not be using outdoor antennas. I would hire a reputable consultant to help you with your design, because no document can account for all the possible variables in your deployment. I would take a look at the High Density VRD here: http://community.arubanetworks.com/t5/Validated-Reference-Design/High-Density-Wireless-Networks-for-Auditoriums/ta-p/155578 as a starting point.
