No. Deploying more access points will only increase congestion on your WiFi network. Access to the WiFi shared media is not synchronized, so several transmitters can collide, lose data packets, and have to retransmit. This results in an unwanted drop in performance for all devices on the network. However, if the access points have CHT installed, the radio and logical resources will be optimally distributed in real-time, measuring their environment and adapting to each different situation. Thanks to CHT, the most demanding network situations are controlled without human supervision, ensuring the best performance with minimal hardware involved.
It means that each AP with CHT installed is aware of its environment, the availability of radio resources, and the distribution of users. As a result, the nodes make joint decisions to optimize the overall performance of the WiFi network, thus trying to guarantee fair use of the network without a centralized or cloud controller. CHT avoids single points of failure, delays in decision making, and bottlenecks.
Of course, you can! Even if your access points only have one radio, CHT algorithms can dramatically improve network performance. Smart roaming enables a seamless transition between adjacent zones, while automatic power control and channel assignment reduce overall interference, allowing for better rates and less power consumption. In addition, the congestion control system makes it possible to establish a guaranteed minimum performance for each connected passenger. This prevents one passenger from hogging all the bandwidth while others struggle to have minimal service. It is also possible to locate user devices, without reducing network performance. Furthermore, our Cloud Manager application allows remote control as well as configuration, updates, monitoring, and troubleshooting of all our CHT access points.
