Getting 802.11n Wireless intoHotel Rooms is a Snap
But it takes some unconventional thinking
 
The AP 6511 802.11n Wall Plate Access Point
Wireless access points have been traditionally designed to provide wirelessservice in relatively open spaces. While this works well in most homes andoces, it aces challenges with regard to planning and installation in hotels andother multiple dwelling unit acilities, which can aect quality o service and cost.In this paper we will address a relatively unconventional means to quicklyand cost eectively overcome these challenges and provide high quality Wi-Fiwithout the convention cost and hassle. The solution is simple – use a wallplate access point that can be quickly snapped into place (in minutes, not hours)on the wall inside the guest room using the existing CAT5/6 wires in the walls.And because the wall plate location is at the end o the room with the lowestattenuation (rewalls, redoors, tile, mirrors, and water pipes), the radio qualityrom room to room is very strong – all without requiring site surveysand planning.Since the wireless wall plate is rather unconventional, we’ll address how itcompares with the traditional thinking in each essential phase o wireless(WLAN) planning, installation, and management.

WLAN Planning –
Get it right the frst time 
 
TRADITIONAL THINKING
The goal of the site survey is to determine the optimal placement of the minimum amount of access points to provide reliable RF coverage.
Optimal placement is code or “where and how do I install this thing?”
Installation in the hallway
Traditionally, access points are installed in the hallways, and push thepower through rewalls, redoors, and around mirrors. The site surveyneeds to consider these actors and ensure coverage within theguest room. Hallway ceilings o a typical hotel are hardcap to meet re coderegulations. The cost o installation in a hardcap ceiling can average$400 per AP. Another actor to consider is co-channel intererencebetween APs with little attenuation between them. During thesite survey, this is usually ignored.Because o these two actors — high signal attenuation and high installation cost — the physical placement o the access point is a criticaldeterminant o the wireless WLAN success.
If you make a mistake 
A poor site selection or the access point is very dicult to correct. Typical corrective action usually involves a higher gain antenna orrelocating the installation site o the access point.
NEW THINKING
The goal of the site survey focuses on RF planning,not physical installation

The AP 6511 802.11n Wall Plate Access Point
By installing the access point inside the guest room, the physicalplacement is always known. Installation density is easy to control andinstallation location is easy to change.When the access point is installed in the room, co-channelintererence is greatly reduced. It’s easy to understand why: the wallsthat attenuate the guest signal also prevent one access point rominterering with another access point on the same channel.Pre-installation site surveys can now ocus on the RF planning and notthe physical installation. This will lead to a more reliable site survey. Ithe MDUs are constructed o multiple, repeating rooms, a simple sitesurvey can easily be replicated and adjusted on the fy.
