CTS 171: Designing Wi-Fi Networks In Higher Education

Recently, I joined the wonder folks at iBwave to deliver a webinar on the topic of designing Wi-Fi networks in Higher Education.

Thanks so much iBwave for providing me the opportunity to discuss Wi-Fi design in front of their audience.

The agenda items I cover in this webinar:

  • Challenges we see today
  • Approach to Wi-Fi design
  • Designing for capacity in large spaces
  • Wi-Fi 6 Considerations

To follow along with this episode you can download my slides.

Why must we design Wi-Fi? Why can’t we just install access points and call it a day? That’s something I go into with this webinar. But the short story is you don’t want to guess. We’re delivering a service that is used by thousands of people and whom rely on this service.

And some of those people have over 30k clients per day. What if 1/3 of those people had poor Wi-Fi experiences and put in a ticket for each incident?

When it comes to Wi-Fi, we should follow a process or a lifecycle in order to continue delivering a good user experience. I go into each of these on the webinar.

I provide examples from my own environments.

Share my solutions to temporary Wi-Fi deployments for events.
