Meraki have a hell of a time with dense open floor plans but to be fair so will any manufacturer. Unifi are a strong contender in this space and you're not locked in to service contracts but still have centralized management. Whatever manufacturer you go with make sure to budget wifi audits and tuning. Otherwise you'll end up with dead zones, overloaded APs (eg, near the kitchen and front doors, etc) and other fun stuff.

Another +1 for Meraki. Their product is excellent and makes your life a lot easier. It’s not cheap but worth the money if you factor in the time it saves on your end and in keeping your office productive.

We have a solutions provider we can recommend if you want to talk to someone. Also happy to talk more off-list if you have specific questions.

Brent Baisley (Member) sent a message to the CTO School mailing list Re: CTO School list: “Office Network Help” I've used Geosot (geosot.com) across two companies now. I'm happy to outsource our wifi and internet to them. They chose Meraki and ZyWall, which I can login from anywhere and check myself if there is a problem. My contact is Sotiris Dimitropoulos.

Cheers, Brent

Mike Fiedler (Member) sent a message to the CTO School mailing list Re: CTO School list: “Office Network Help” Hi Jared! I don't have any person in mind, but I can't rave enough about using Meraki (acquired by Cisco) for office wifi. They provide a full-featured managed service, and provide a pile of diagnostic tools, including bandwidth monitoring, frequency avoidance, etc. I've uploaded an office floor plan, and placed the access points on the map, and gotten good suggestions on how to improve the network from them.

I hear that Ubiquiti offers similar – so I'm less familiar with their platform – but good to have some options to evaluate.

Best, -M

Jared Hales (Member) sent a message to the CTO School mailing list Office Network Help Hey CTO school members, I need some advice. Our office network has begun to perform poorly as Bespoke Post has grown. At this point, we have almost 50 people in our office and the network setup that was previously fine seems to be struggling (especially the Wifi). Does anybody have recommendations for someone skilled at this who could come in and get things working well? If I try to do it myself, it seems like it's going require a lot of troubleshooting and learning-by-doing.
