Is that Location tracking within the controller or within Airwave?

Either way, you need minimum 3 access points to get a fix on a device. More if you require better resolution. Access points are okay for location tracking, but air monitors are much better. Airwave is superior for location tracking than the controller, where the controller-based tracking has not changed much for some time. If you are serious about location tracking you should use airwave because it has more tools.

You should deploy access points to the outer edges of a building as opposed to a straight line to get better results.
