Why I should buy AMs


  I was talking to my boss about bying AMs for our environment, but he says that APs are also doing RF scanning and buying AMs is a wast of money. Any documentation I can use to show that AMs are better in terms of RF scanning. Thanks in advance.

Take a look at the WIPS white paper, it details some good use cases for dedicated security with AM’s as opposed to a best effort approach with AP’s.

+1 for the document

If designing a wireless network use a ratio of 1:4 for the AM. So one AM on every four AP
