Top Enterprise Wi-Fi

Wi-Fi protocol used
Channelization
Band used by 5 GHz capable Wi-Fi clients

Characteristics of an Enterprise Wi-Fi network that performs well

Unsurprisingly, the use of 802.11ac increases greatly the performance of a network. We also noticed that the use of relatively narrow channels has a positive impact on the overall performance. Lastly, limiting the number of 5 GHz capable clients connecting to a 2.4 GHz network (by enabling band steering) will make your network run better.

OS DHCP Issues


Among mobile devices, which OS fails to connect on DHCP more than normal.

Android SSID issues


Among Android phones, which OS version clients fluctuate SSIDs more than normal.

Top University Wi-Fi

Wi-Fi protocol used
Channelization
Band used by 5 GHz capable Wi-Fi clients

Characteristics of an University Wi-Fi network that performs well

One of the big differences between well performing University vs. Enterprise Wi-Fi networks is that well performing University Wi-Fi networks overwhelmingly use 20MHz channels. Since these environments tend to be denser and more prone to interference and noise, maximizing the number of choices for AP channel assignment yields performance improvements. Similar to Enterprise Networks, the use of 802.11ac and the efficacy of band steering 5GHz capable clients to connect on the 5GHz network is highly beneficial.
