I understand that this might be a broad question, so feel free to make it bleed with edits, but what considerations do I need to make with regards to signal shapes and device locations in a small-medium sized location with these characteristics:
- Mix of office area and dirty manufacturing shop floor in one squarish building (shop floor is roughly 3x the size of the office area, ~120K sq feet total)
- Office building has a mix of open cubicle area and offices / conf rooms around the perimeter
- Building is constructed of primarily steel and cinder block.
I'm thinking of using Cisco equipment if that helps to narrow it down, but am not committed at this point. I would need to keep the cost down as much as possible, but it's understood that reliability trumps staying well under-budget if you get my meaning.
Let me know if there is more I should include in the question!
