A Look At Scaling Challenges of WLANs

College campuses are considered ground zero for WLAN scaling issues and discussion due to the large number of clients and high bandwidth usage for both wired and wireless users. Network World took a look at the challenges of scaling WLANs and what some colleges are doing about it.

Early WLANs focused on growing the number of access points to cover a given area. But today, many wireless administrators are focusing more attention on scaling capacity. That focus is a broad one, calling for a deeper understanding of what access points are capable of, and paying more attention to scaling back-end systems, servers and networks.
