Re: AP 115 vs 105 vs 135

Thoughts? I've been looking at this a little further and client goodput is ok. Channel utilization is anywhere between 2-12% but this could be because of usage (client aware is on).
Thinking of disabling b basic rates from what I see from airwaves reporting not much b going on or at all.

Still waiting on pricing for 115s but definitely thinking moving the aps out of the drop ceiling and mounting them on the the t-bars along with changing to 105 or 115s would greatly benefit the customer

FYI: a colleague did a quick test in our underground parking garage and got a substantial improvement in coverage going from AP-105 to AP-115. He only tested 2.4GHz though. :smileymad:

 

And yes, there are plenty of situations where coverage is far more important than density.

Koenv,

 

Tell us more on the results and the test conditions used when you can... agreed on the 2.4 GHz only piece ;(

 

I'll be curious as to what kind of tests you guys typically do when comparing this kind of stuff.

Re: AP 115 vs 105 vs 135

BTW, the pricing on the AP-115 is $895 USD  aka.  +$200 USD LIST over the AP-105  and -$200 USD LIST under the AP-135.

 

Aha, right in the middle.  I think someone above described it as a 'sweet spot'.  Oh yeah, i remember who ;-)

Re: AP 115 vs 105 vs 135

was you!

Question: What amount of users can each AP support?
I know this depends on network and type of clients but are there any numbers?

105: 20-25 users per radio??
115: 30-40 users per radio??
135: 40-50 users per radio??

For example..

Re: AP 115 vs 105 vs 135

This thread has fizzled out a bit but I'm currently in the same predicament here as well

 

I currently have AP-105's and for reasons I don't want to get into here, we are looking at upgrading to AP-115 or 135 Maybe?

 

We are a school with 1 to 1 ipad program with an AP 105  covering in each classroom

 

We have approx 25 + iPads/devices in each classroom...

 

Would the AP 115 be sufficient?  from my reading the 115 is for better "coverage" and the 135 for better "density"

 

I don't think we'll go over 30 devices on one classroom at a time.

 

Your prompt response is greatly appreciated.

Access point information is very fragmented and that's why I made an "Aruba access point portoflio overview", based on the datasheets and practical use. An one-page file which gives you an instant non-cluttered overview of the current Aruba portfolio (Indoor and internal antenna's only).

Re: AP 115 vs 105 vs 135

srfrdrew, the 115 will certainly handle 30 iPads on a single AP, esp if you are doing it now with the 105s. The 115s have more CPU and better radios.
