Recently I have ran into 2 different suggestions about how to deploy a wireless network in a stadium and which antennas to use. It appears that Aruba uses the Pico Cell layout by adding wireless patch antennas underneath the concrete seats and radiates frequency upwards.
Then I also watched another video about "Extreme Networks Stadium Wi Fi Tech Talk" which recommends the use of directional antennas for wireless stadium deployment. In this video they talk about using directional antennas to radiate frequency in sections for example the 1st seat of a section to the top seat of the same section. I'll add some pictures below which might help explain what I'm trying to ask.
Both theories seem that they work due to planning for capacity but I'm still questioning if other layouts exists for stadiums, which would work best, and what antennas are the best one's to use?
