-67 in practice is a good target across the board for all clients.  For more information, pleasesee "Optimizing Aruba WLANs for Roaming Devices" here:  http://www.arubanetworks.com/wp-content/uploads/DG_Roaming.pdf

Bhrt,

 

That document accounts for the fact that you might have voice mixed into your population.   The indoor 802.11n site survey and planning document has good information and principles about the network you are interested in building: http://www.arubanetworks.com/wp-content/uploads/Indoor80211n_2012-05-31.pdf   

 

The -67 number depends on the voice handset manufacturer.  If you are not doing voice, the document above should suffice.
