WAP54G and voip

    I really need some help here!

    I'm helping out another office who have a small network with a Mitel voip system. The set up is straightforward with an HP swtich managing 2 vlans for the voice and data. Now they've upped the pace by renting another office over the road and they want to link them wirelessly. I've done a signal check and it's fine but I need to know if the 54Mbps access points (one set to repeat the signal from the other) will be able to handle the voice and data traffic. Both sites are CAT5 wired and the access points will be used solely to link the two offices. And another thing...there's a shortage of power so I was planning to run POE injectors and was wondering if this would cause any issues. ANY help gratefully recevied as my brain is toasted on this one!

    Thanks

    Mike

    you didn't specify how much voice/data traffic they will be sending over the wireless link...how many phones will they have in the remote building...you're looking at 64-90 kbit per phone in use...

    Sorry about the lack of info. Main site is around 15 phones but they're wired straight into the HP swtich. On the other side (linked via the wireless access points) there will be around 10 phones and 10 PCs. I was guessing at 64k per phone plus around 10-20k for the signalling. Is this reasonable?

    ...and also not much data traffic (some browsing and email). The main HP swtich runs QoS as will the one on the other (wireless) side.

    shouldn't be an issue, you can QOS the voip traffic over the web traffic if you want if you have good antennas you should be able to link up at 54mbit if their not too far away... if you can pull that off you should be able to push 30-40 mbit which shouldn't be an issue.

    Thank you very much for your help. I feel a lot happier! Am I also right in thinking that the access points have a socket for additional antennae?

    I'll be back if I need any help...you have been warned :D

    i don't have an AP so i';m not completely sure but i'm pretty sure it's the same design as the WRTs where you can remove the antennai and put on new ones
