How to choose EAP product?

 

What is the Wi-Fi coverage area for a single EAP?

The Wi-Fi coverage of an EAP is normally about 500 m2 with peek transmission power, and a single EAP can have about 25 – 35 clients at most (clients’ number is doubled for dual-band EAP enabled 2.4G and 5G).

 

What is the recommended Channel Distribution and Reuse Plan for 2.4GHz Channels?

We just need to use 1, 6, 11 channels of 2.4GHz band again and again, and make sure there are no same channels among adjacent APs. Because there is no overlap among 5GHz channels, we just need to make sure adjacent APs work on different 5GHz channels. No need to choose specific 5GHz channels like choosing 1, 6, 11 channels of 2.4GHz band.
