underground wifi


I would like to ask some information about wifi.

Has anybody got any experience about deploying wifi (aruba) underground? The plan is that the antenna will be drawn across the tube. Has any example for this? Which solution, which devices and which antenna type is the best for this?
I heard it had some problem with leaky cable souliton. And the very narrow 20-degree antenna is more prefered in the tunnel.
Can anybody explain which soulition is the best and why?

Thank you in advance for your help!

Re: underground wifi

802.11n and leaky cable are very difficult if not prohibitive to get working.  Please find an Aruba engineer locally to see if this is even feasible.
