I have to cover a building of 35x60 meters in one floor, only with columns inside. I will have about 400 concurrent users there (ipads, iphones, BB, HTCs.. laptops..)
My problem is that interferences will be very high. The customer wants to rent the network for 4 days. All previous years, the network of the event died because the big number of users.. then, this year we want it running : D!
Ruckus is not an option due to the costs, and I will try to install 15 multiband APs, with 1x2.4 and 1x5ghz radio on each. It will be better to make it 802.11N with a 2.4 n-radio and 5ghz n-radio?
Anyone did a project like this? How many minutes will work the network properly? How many mobile users you had in 802.11g AP?
All the APs will validate users to a hotspot (RB1100AHx2).
