I've been trying to find out more about how local LANs around a VSAT might be set up and managed and found this page:

It is by Trapeze, so emphasises their merits and compares with Cisco and Aruba alternatives.

Quote "In the small business configuration comprising 10 access points and 250 users, the Yankee Group found that a WLAN built around the Trapeze Networks MX-8 controller provided the low TCO, with first year costs of $23,367 "

I guess most VSAT community networks might have rather less than this, with between 1 and 5 wireless access points and with 10 to 100 users.

If you have experience with any of these alternatives (or others) please say.

Cardiff University is implementing a Trapeze Ringmaster LAN with 1300 access points and 35000 PCs.  This is 200 - 1000 times the size of what we are looking for, but what lessons can we learn ?  ref:

Best regards, Eric.
