RF Plan - does it take into account placement of walls?


I'm try to best locate 8 AP in my new office. I use RF Plan from W-3200 controller.

My question is: does this software take any feedback from AP? If I locate AP now, and for instance after one year build additional concrete wall, does RF Plan take into account this damping wall? Does it require AM in my infrastructure to reflect this wall?

Re: RF Plan - does it take into account placement of walls?

If you are planning APs, RF plan only takes walls into consideration if you draw them.


When you look at the live map, it draws coverage based on how each AP actually sees its own neighboring APs.


 You should not need air monitors, but the more APs on a map, the more accurate the heat map is after deployment.
