VoIP-over-WLAN deployment tips

  • Find a vendor experienced in both WLANs and VoIP.

  • Conduct a site survey that identifies probable WLAN voice and data users and their usage patterns.

  • Place access points to achieve sufficient overlap between locations.

  • Identify potentially congested areas and plan for additional access points there.

  • Be prepared for jitter and call dropping when the network is first installed.

  • Monitor network usage to identify bottlenecks.

  • Re-examine your network configuration every three months and expect to make changes once or twice per year.
