Wireless LAN RF Design Fundamentals White Paper

I just wanted to post a new white paper on ‘Wireless LAN RF Design Fundamentals’ – let’s go back “old school” for awhile and see how we used to design RF for Wireless LANs…

  1. If designing a RF plan for Voice then the aspect of creating coverage which will allow a portable phone to seamlessly roam between access point without any hickups should be the first planning goal. Hard to achoeve if a customer already has a WLAN and is in the process of adding voice.

    So it is even more important with voice that you get RF where you want it and no RF where you do not want it. VoWLAN handset are muche more sensitive to channel interference.

    High speed capacity is of less importance. This goal may conflict with other planing goals for laptops and other devices.In the worst case scenario you may have to build 2 separate WLANs and not use the benefits of a converged data/voice WLAN at all.
