I have a project I'm working on.
I want to know about your experiences with large warehouse scenarios.
Is mikrotik suited fo the job?
My scenario is about the following:
total area: aprox 75.000 sq ft
ceiling: 40feet high, all metallic
racks: metalic, 35 feet high , 2,2m wide,
aisles between racks: 3,2m wide
My main concerns:
- client devices are symbol and motorola handhelds:
how good are this things roaming between APs?
They won't be using heavy traffic, but handoffs of 1min are unacceptable
- is CAPsMAN working fine for: auto channel selection? dynamic power adjusting and other features competitors with wireless controller systems (cisco, extreme, aruba etc) brags to have?
- Due the fact that APs need to be on the ceiling, is there a right equipment for the job?
I guess omni-directional antennas will be a waste of energy. They need to be directional, aimed from top to bottom and have coverage of all the aisle.
One AP per aisle, or two at most, if they are placed at the walls facing each other.
