Dear All

i have outdoor area (students waiting area) open area 50m*30 m

the nearest buliding from this area about 20-30 m ( i have wism in this buliding and Indoor AP)

# users from 50-70 at same time

open area mybe  affected by weather factors

what is good solution for this case


Hi Mohammed,

If you have 50 - 70 students and I suppose they are using normal web traffic, you would want to have a minimum of 4 access points (20 per). That still a bit high for my liking, I try to aim for 10 clients per ap for data only.

As for what solution, you could point directionals off the building, deploy mesh if you have power in the waiting area. I mean there are a number of options. You might want to speak to your local cisco se.
