Do you have equipment installed already, or is this a planned install?

How large is the installation?

There are many solutions for enterprise WLAN, some are mesh-based solutions, and most enterprise solutions are based on Lightweight Access Points (LAPs) with a separate WLAN controller.

I've worked with some fairly large WLAN installs (50 APs in one warehouse).

There are ways, but...

You must understand that it's not easy to answer such an unspecific question.

The answer could be very different, depending on a whole bunch of parameters, for instance:
- How many users?
- Any guest accounts?
- How big area to cover?
- How secure does it need to be?
- What type of equipment would connect?
- What type of equipment do you already have in your network (AD, DNS...)
- Would you only serve your own equipment (i.e. from your own domain)?
- What capacity are you going to need?
And so on...

So, you'll have to spend time and money on searching, reading, consultants etc to find the answer for YOUR particular situation.
