Network Requirements: Coverage Area
For great Wi-Fi, you need even coverage. Building construction materials such as bricks or metal as well as distance can cause your home to work against your wireless network. Which is why understanding how your square footage, number of floors, and the materials used to build your home can have an impact a negative on your Wi-Fi signal strength. Obstacles that might block or deteriorate signal quality like metal studs, reflective glass, brick walls, all need to be considered when building your home network. From dead zones in the far corners of your home to overall poor signal strength, you might be in a situation where your existing Wi-Fi is struggling to keep up with the demands of your household. If this is the case, you may need multiple access points as a part of your home network design. Open floors typically need fewer access points per square foot than divided areas with many rooms. As a general rule of thumb, you need at least one access point per 1,000-1,500 square feet and per 30 client devices.
Network Requirements: Client Devices
With the multitude of connected home products as well as Wi-Fi enabled devices it’s important to how many devices will be connected at any given time. The reason this is so important is that older devices can limit performance for newer and faster equipment unless you plan for it. As a general rule of thumb, you should be using one access point per 30 devices. Client devices include things like computers, smart phones, media devices, and so on. Both coverage area and number of devices will have an impact on performance.
