Cisco Small Business 100 Series Wireless Access Points

Because of the unique setup on our campus, these provide great coverage for our dorms, office areas, and smaller classrooms. However, in areas were the load was much higher, the devices could become overtaxed after about 25 users depending on the strength of the devices.

Back in the day these were really well priced, and had some amazing coverage. After using newer Cisco gear, while more expensive, they dont shine so brightly anymore. They did have trouble under load as well. I would recommend them to someone only if they were really constrained in their budget for wifi equipment.

Alternatives Considered

Cisco Small Business 100 Series Wireless Access Points

We ended up actually moving from Cisco WAPs into a full Ubiquiti stack, as our IT people preferred the coverage and more "enterprise" IT-focused features and the flexibility of a setup not necessarily marketed and designed for small businesses. I'd say at 40-50 people, you may outgrow this setup as well.
