Outdoor Access Point/AP reference

Wed Dec 09, 2020 3:36 am

Dear Team,

We would like to enquire if you know of any product that can be suitable for our
specific use case and scenario.

We cover an area about 6km square foot, with our fiber optic network installation, however we intend to build a wireless mesh network on top this fiber infrastructure, and also provide VOIP solutions over this wireless network.
To this end we need the following specifications for the hotspot wifi outdoor antenna/Access Point

1. Outdoor antenna SOURCE OF THE INTERNET IS THE FIBER BROADBAND, either through fast ethernet port as uplink

2. MIMO to handle massive request (about 500,000 concurrent users/connections)

3. PoE (so that it can be powered by the fiber modem).

4. Range: at least 1.2km directional or omni directional.

Kindly confirm if you have available any product that can be used to this end.

What cell phone or ipad or any device has a wifi range of 1KM ??
MIMO is not designed to handle 500,000 concurrent users.
IS this a serious question or a homework question.

Just kidding, this kind of large area sq footage coverage is already accomplished by using
the MT satellite wifi repeater. They just have to wait for the next SpaceX launch
to get the satellite into orbit.
I'd rather manage rats than software. Follow my advice at your own risk! (Sob & mkx forced me to write that!)
