Simple Density

Okay, for the first time ever, our school has a unified, centrally-controlled enterprise wireless system.

We pushed the roll out of this because the middle school is trying out online ERB testing, and that means 120 to 240 students need to be online simultaneously to do sample tests, to do the real exams, etc.

Needless to say, this amount of load is a lot to ask of any wireless system.  We are not pushing 450 simultaneous users at peak times.  If these were all wired computers, that would be a significant corporate building.  When I visit bank buildings downtown, I see nice sets of cubicles with wired desktops stretched out over open floors.  I don’t see hundreds of wireless laptop users huddled around in tight groups.

In fact, I’m having a hard time thinking of a non-school organization that would have 450 wireless users, and 200 more wired users, all up and running at the same time in a single building.  Our needs are becoming denser– but also unique.
