Re: The use of wireless network is only good when managed well
I am curious if you are using any traffic prioritization technologies to better manage the numerous devices.

Re: The use of wireless network is only good when managed well
The WLAN upgrade didn't account for the growing number of wireless devices per person. If you think about it most of us have 3-4 wireless devices. There are phones, tablets, laptops, gaming consoles, wireless printers, AppleTVs, ChromeCasts. Coming to think of it some places have "too much" wireless coverage, because clients would rapidly roam back and forth between a handful of APs. We could log into the controller and watch clients bounce from AP to AP. The use of wireless devices and wireless network should be controlled and regulated at some point.

Re: What do they do with all that stuff?
You have gadgets and still you will crave for more. In future, there are going to be more devices that will like to tap into WiFi and get online.

Re: What do they do with all that stuff?
I wish I knew what they did with all that stuff.  Though, if you think about it most of us have 3-4 wireless devices.  There are phones, tablets, laptops, gaming consoles, wireless printers, AppleTVs, ChromeCasts.  The list goes on and on.  This appears to be the norm from my discussions with folks at other universities.

What do they do with all that stuff?
Wow, 4 devices per student? What do they do with all that stuff? Have you found that's typical at other schools too?
