there is no specific Calculator tool or software called "Fortiplanner" associated with Fortinet or any widely known networking company. However, Fortinet does offer a range of networking and security products, including wireless access points (APs)

In general, the height calculation for installing an AP is based on factors like the coverage area, signal propagation, interference, and the intended use case. To determine the ideal height for installing an AP, you typically consider the following:

  1. Coverage Area: The size of the area you want to cover with Wi-Fi. Larger areas might require higher AP placement.

  2. Signal Propagation: The signal strength and coverage area of the AP depend on its height. Higher installations may provide broader coverage.

  3. Interference: Analyzing potential sources of interference (walls, obstacles, other electronic devices) can help in determining the optimal AP height.

  4. Use Case: Different use cases may require different AP placements. For example, in a warehouse, you might place APs higher for better coverage, while in an office, you might place them lower to provide stronger signals at desk level.
