WiFi in Marquees

I have been asked to provice WiFi in 3 marquees which will be used for an exhibition with many stands. 

I need to design the layout number of the access points before they marquees are erected.

 

Marquee Details:
 
15m x 39m Aluminium Framed – Wooden base floor, canvas sides and roof structure (Clear Span)
10m x 35m Framed Structure – Wooden base floor, canvas sides and roof structure (Clear Span)
12m x 42m Framed Structure – Wooden base floor, canvas sides and roof structure (Clear Span)

 

 

I will be using Aruba 215 or 225 Access Points

Thank you for any help

Re: WiFi in Marquees

How many simultaneous clients do you think you will be serving?

What are your mounting options?

How many access points do you curently have?

Are these controller-based or instant APs?

Re: WiFi in Marquees

Hi,

 

There will be approx 3,000 attendees visiting during a 6 hour period and up to 200 exhibitors. The marquees will be in a line (narrow sides butting onto each other) and the students encouraged to 'flow' through the space. Therefore I see mainly casual use of the wifi, facebook, web browsing etc. The exhibitors ahven't been offered wifi as a service, so I don't expect many to turn up with requirements to stream off the Internet.

 

Mounting options - we are thinking of attaching to the marquee structure, probably using many tie wraps/velcro etc.

 

They are controller based APs. I have Aruba 215 and 225 available.

 

I am thinking of  cabling them all back to one switch.

I would take a look at our High Density VRD here:  http://community.arubanetworks.com/t5/Validated-Reference-Design/High-Density-Wireless-Networks-for-Auditoriums/ta-p/155578 to get some specific ideas about planning and configuration.
