For wireless environments with high density of clients many manufacturers (Meru, Xirrus, Ruckus, Trapeze, ...) have developed equipment and capabilities optimized to provide good performance, these features are mainly based on the use of a single channel, or the use of smart antennas and arrays. In theory, these features are quite reasonable.
But Cisco is among the few manufacturers who think that with proper design (based on microcells) can obtain a better performance in dense environments, without necessary equipment or special features. I have had problems in high density environments with Cisco, but I could not prove in practice the solutions of other manufacturers.
Has anyone been able to compare both methods in the same environment? Cisco is right? What are the most important considerations to take into account in a high density environment with Cisco equipment?
