To all the networking gurus that are a part of this community, what would I need in order to test if a conference center, meeting hall, hotel, etc. etc. has a good enough wireless network to handle X amount of people on their network?
I actually started a thread similar to this like a year ago, but I can no longer find it, and I figure some things have changed over the past year.
I do have this company from that search last year. Ixia, but I am not exactly sure what I would need from them based on my needs.
This is for my job. So budget is potentially a few $1000. Probably up to like $5000 if really needed. I would probably be in charge of running whatever the solution would be. Our IT department is currently saying they do not have anything they can do, so the more user friendly it can be, the better.
The Exact Need - Ideally I need whatever this would be to show up at a location, input the amount of users, input the amount of estimated bandwidth each user (or combined users) would be using, and then do an actual test that mimics those users actually being connected to the wireless network.
This would almost always be on iPads.
