In my work as wireless systems engineer, consultant and instructor, I encounter a lot of poor Wi-Fi designs. Even when a site survey has been performed. In this session, I will talk about the structured steps that need to be followed in order to deploy a good performing and reliable Wi-Fi network. Besides using the proper tools, you need to understand the tools (I will be using Ekahau in a demo) and have the knowledge to use them.
