Outdoor ap's for public hotspot, wAPac?

Mon May 17, 2021 12:50 pm

I cant determine what's the best choice for a public wifi setup.
I have to build a public wifi on a public square with 15 ap's, some of the ap's can have a concentration of 50/80 devices connected simultaneously, can the wAPac RBwAPG-5HacD2HnD handle this kind of concentration.

Is this kind of AP the right one for this low/mid concentration of devices (50/80 clients)?

Thanks

In my field testing, 50-80 on a wap ac is no go.
Not bad AP's, but I wouldn't load more than maybe 10-15 clients max.

I'd recommend Ruckus/Extreme/Aruba/Cambium for those kinda client numbers.

We are doing all public wifi with cambium and we are very happy with them, specially with poe out on eth2 where we can power up another ap when there is one utp cable outside
