Looking for guidance on Wireless Solution

chris parkinson

We have a new client that wants to add guest WiFi to their Motel.

Given the build type, a wireless analysis of the complex estimate coverage should be achieved by 10 APs running at 2.5Ghz.

The service type will be purely guest access to basic Internet.

Given we'll need about 10APs running over 6 Channels, 2.5Ghz capable, I'm really looking for something that supports a cluster so I don't have to individually config & manage all 10 APs.

Also, wee need some sort of HTTP Intercept that forces users to accept custom usage terms beore thay can access the Internet.

Currently they have no Internet or Network service at this site at all, so we'll be building the whole network from the ground up.

If anyone can recommend anything in the SMB line that supports this, I'd appreciate the pointers.

Im guessing you mean 2.5ghz not 2.5ghz.  Also you only have 3 non-overlapping channels in the 2.4ghz. Your best bet is to get a 2504 WLC with 15 AP license.  Then you might look at the LAP1041N if you only want 2.4ghz not 5ghz.

Thanks, but that option is looking quite expensive, contoller list is $5K, 10pak APs  list $8K.

Maybe I'll look at clustering the AP500.

Try Cisco Refurbished.
