Number and type on WAP for mobile workers

Hello, dear specialists!

I have 15 branches of office running under cisco.

On one of offices our director wants to place 10 employes using iphones for scaning barcodes from our production. They will use wi-fi for connecting to our database and send to it information about incoming production. Maximum number of employes is 30 persons.

We need WAP which can use PoE without external power supply,and cover about 30x20 meters room wth many iron shelfes

I read that one WAP can hold up to 10 users who go for video or voice data and up to 25 users how go for MS Office, Browser and so on.

Will one WAP be enough for covering this location?

Re: Number and type on WAP for mobile workers

I would say not. You need to look at coverage and attenuation. In a warehouse, signal might get degenerated due to the racks, etc. you really need to have a site survey done to actually know how many APs and where they should be located. If you don't have a site survey done, then it's a best guest to coverage. Attach the floor plan so we can see.

Re: Number and type on WAP for mobile workers

Thank you for your answer!

Here is our 3 offices

The last one will have up to 30 users via Iphones

The other two will have up to 10 users via notebooks for office, outlook, browsing and so on

I'm looking at 1141 and 1042 series, do the worth it?

I would look at the 1142 at least you get dual band which does help. epending on the walls you might be able to get away with one (recommend two) for the two smaller offices.  Maybe 3-4 on the larger office. 

Thanks,

Scott

Re: Number and type on WAP for mobile workers

Great! thank you!

Is it right to play 1142 in the center of the plan on the wall with PoE without external power supply?

On the last plan the most importiant is to cover huge open area on the top, others doesnt actualy metter...

I draw pluse field is area that should be covered with wi-fi and red dots are possible places of waps. Where would you advice me to place it?

The last two pictures in this message are 2nd and 3rd floors of one building. Is it possible to unite them with one Wap?

Can you please explain why 1142 and not 1042 or single bands?
