I initially started designing a hilt with the Plecter CF-LS in mind but it seems a bit unclear when the new version will ever come out. I was originally wanting to do a string blade but now I'm leaning towards Neopixels.
I discovered the Proffieboard and was really impressed with the SmoothSwing feature. The wiring diagrams look like it can two multiple Neopixel strips.
Is the Proffieboard basically a newer version of the Teensy board? Also, if I were to do multiple LED strips in the blade, is it capable of still driving some accent lighting for a button and some LEDs for a crystal chamber? The little configurator tool on the site looked like two strips might prevent doing much else in regards to lighting.
So something I've been noticing a lot when attempting to troubleshoot clients through Prime Infrastructure... a lot of wireless clients seem to disassociate fairly frequently and then immediate associate again... usually to a different AP. The association history in Prime for the client ends up looking like a repeating wave between three APs. The durations between association times usually seem to always be around an a factor of 5 minutes... so 15 min 14 sec, 10 min 14 sec, 25 min 39 sec, 1 hr 10 min 55 sec, etc.
I've been wondering what this is about and how it probably affects the end-user experience. My assumption is it is disruptive due to the client having to move between APs... so anything real-time and/or latency sensitive like video chat or online gaming might be affected. I figured at first it may be due to a system default of 5 minutes on the User Session Idle but I adjusted it up to an hour and didn't see a noticeable difference. DCA is currently set on an interval of 10 minutes and I have EDRRM on so it seems like it wouldn't always happen in a factor of 5 between changes.
I can see a ton of RRM events for 2.4ghz, so many so that Prime is saying there are to many unique events per device, so I think I may need to tweak 2.4ghz RRM sensitivity down but the clients I'm seeing are also 5ghz which doesn't have nearly as much of an interference or co-channel utilization issue at our location and no where near the number of events.
Anyone have any thoughts or experience with this or is this just normal?

Curious what people's target max clients per AP are for moderate to heavy use areas? Not so much client density but application usage such as gaming, video/voice communication, streaming, etc?
Most of the AP documentation (Cisco) I'm looking at talks about maximum clients but a lot of it either seems to be in the context of actual max the hardware could handle or number of clients doing light web surfing it can handle.
I'm wanting to re-evaluate our residence hall wifi deployment to see if I need to write up a proposal to beef it up. I'm also considering proposing replacement of APs with Wave 2 capable units as I think MU-MIMO capability may help improve things as well.

*edit* Downvotes for some reason.. just to be clear, while I reference ArcMaps a lot in this, I'm not necessarily looking for specific software support unless someone happens to have some experience with it for telecom mapping. Any suggestions on other solutions would still be greatly appreciated. I know this isn't as sexy as a routing problem or something but it's still network documentation... unless there is a better subreddit I should be using?
So I've got a project involving future planning for conduit/vault/box and fiber locations and paths. To plan for the future, I figured it would be best to also show what we already have so I spent a few days in Google Earth and came up with something useable that has groups that can kind of act like layers to show or hide things. It isn't 100% accurate and I eyeballed everything instead of using GPS coordinates for the first pass but it was a decent proof of concept.
My boss liked the output but would like to find something a bit more maintainable and cross platform than just leaving the file up on Dropbox. He recommended ArcGIS since we apparently have some licenses from another department on campus.
I found this on their website and really liked it:
Things I like about this particular example:
So I spun up ArcMap and try to follow the "tutorial":
I've come to the conclusion that ArcMaps is the most un-intuitive piece of software I've ever used (congrats Blender, you're #2 now). After finally figuring out how to get coordinates to line up between the basemap layer and other layers I then started beating my head against the desk trying to figure out how to "Add the network map service to the map" like it says in the tutorial. I think I finally figured out how to do it, only to find out that the layers are all locked and it really just seems to dump the data from the sample application in.
I don't mind a challenge and I think the software looks incredibly powerful but I'm not sure I have time right now to design and program a custom ArcMap from scratch instead of just working with a template.
Anyone know of any good solutions to do this kind of thing or have experience with ArcMaps and know of some good resources that might make this easier?
