There are many considerations, all unique to each location.

 

Have you considered working with an Aruba partner?

we already working with one,and they said it will work but as I know I can see that ARm will reduce the power and we may have a lot of collisions regarding the many APs that are near to each other

Generally speaking, 50-60 feet between APs for a dense 5 GHz, voice-grade deployment.

 

You would then tone back the max power in the arm configuration.

 

Take a look at the guide below. It was written for Lync, but most of the wireless design tips and discussion is targeted to any voice environment.
