Aerohive K-12 Education Deployment Guide, Parts 1-4

These are the first four parts in a series of guides about setting up Aerohive devices in a typical K-12 school environment. Each part is a fairly short topic that develops an extended example running throughout the series. Along the way there are numerous tips, suggestions, and alternative approaches. You can begin with the first four parts, which are ready now: 

Part 1: Planning: This guide covers deployment planning, from setting coverage and capacity goals to conducting predictive and manual site surveys. It concludes by introducing the plans for an example high school deployment using AP230, AP130, and SR2148P devices.

Part 2: Wireless Access: In this guide, a network policy with three SSIDs is described. The guide shows how the SSIDs help satisfy the coverage and capacity goals introduced in part 1.

Part 3: Ethernet Switching: The configuration of the network policy started in part 2 continues here. It explains how to configure an SR2148P device template and multiple port types to support various types of Ethernet traffic. 

Part 4: High-density Radio Profiles: The high-density radio profiles to support administration of large standardized online exams in the school cafeteria and gym are described in detail. These settings were validated through testing at the Healdsburg Unified District Junior High School. A summary of the test results appears at the end of the guide.

This is fantastic! Leave it to Aerohive! I will need to revisit this when we relocate our buildings and redesign our wireless.
