Re: open-mesh in a school?
If you are looking for a school solution - with lots of large groups of users, and you don't want to worry about channel planning - you should look at Meru Networks. Meru doesn't use a mesh, but offers single channel, high density, flexible re-configuration options. If you have more questions, we'd be glad to answer them or get you a demo, contact available at ovationnetworks.com
As far as Meraki/Open-Mesh - we're not aware of anyone who's tested such a dense environment - we also have not tested the load balancing capability, however we are working on a solution using them, and may have some test results once that is complete. Its a great, cost effective solution - however I am not expecting to see the same performance (throughput, density, seamless roaming, and load balancing) that we get from our Meru based networks.
