CTS 022: Jason Hintersteiner Part I – Small & Medium Business WiFi

SMB WiFi text over a desk

Jason Hintersteiner joins the Clear To Send podcast to talk about how he got started in WiFi after the thought of having to move to Europe for his employer. From there Jason brings up his experiences working with small & medium business WiFi. This is Part I of a two part podcast interview.

The SMB space requires a different approach to WiFi compared to a large enterprise or large educational institution. While the process might be different, one thing is certain – Jason and I agree that a wireless professional must know the basics or foundations of wireless before designing, installing and troubleshooting a wireless network.

I ask about the tools Jason uses on his Windows laptop and what his design methodology is, such as 80, 40, and 20 MHz channel widths.
