What is Operating Range

Encyclopedia of Information Technology Curriculum Integration
Factors that affect the operating range of any wireless device include the strength of the access point, the number of walls inside a building, the construction materials used within a building (concrete vs. steel vs. wood), and the data transmission speed. Most access point manufacturers offer enhanced antennas for increased range. Manufacturers recommend that access points be deployed 150ft. (50m) apart to ensure full coverage and maximum data throughput rates for roaming computer users.

In February 2000, three seemingly unrelated events came together to present a unique challenge at one mid-Atlantic university—a challenge that is being experienced more and more by colleges and universities across the country. First, the faculty approved a new undergraduate teacher preparation curriculum that would include instructional technology in both the first two semesters of the freshman year and three semesters in their junior and senior years—12 new sections of technology- based training. Second, a graduate degree in instructional technology was growing beyond even its most optimistic predictions. In less than four semesters, enrollment increased from 24 to 140 students. Third, funds, staffing support, and classroom space had not been programmed for yet another much-needed computer facility and renovations to available space were cost-prohibitive. To meet the demands for more technology resources, a new multimedia classroom was proposed. Estimated to cost over $200,000, the proposal was rejected by senior administrators due to budgetary considerations. It was clear that to resolve this dilemma, the program director needed to think “outside the box”.
