Meru test today . . .

The Meru project I blogged about earlier has taken a new turn. The project manager on the property needs to cut cost from his total budget. They have ask us if we can reduce the number of access points from four per floor to three.

Right now Ty and Justin are on their way over to the property to setup a temporary network with a Meru controller and three access points to do a walk test of the entire floor (each apartment and every room in each apartment).

I'll post back the results here this afternoon after they report their findings back to me. My gut says there is a 50/50 chance of it being enough to cover everything. We planned with four APs per floor to be sure we got coverage and I think three might be a stretch.
