I’m wondering if any of you could share your experience with the 3705i APs, regarding their performance, specially for those "cost-effective solutions designed to blend in with office, classroom, and hotel environments" (introduce some markting here...) I am asking this, specially regarding hotels, since they has been the main typically installations that we used for.
I don't have any experience in the higher models, for example the 3710 and so on....
What i noted is that the performance sometimes seems quite lower than old 36xx, I wondering if this could be related due to the MIMO 2x2:2, since hotels typically have a lot walls dividing the rooms and the bathrooms and so on... The product information says that they are optimized for drop ceiling deployments, but most customers want the APs hidden due to "aesthetic" reasons... i think hide them is always a bad decision right?
In this kind of deployments should we increase the number of these 3705i AP's or use higher performance models?
Thanks in advance.
