Implementing extensive WiFi coverage in a basketball arena - Looking for leading practices
********** Participation and subscription information for this EDUCAUSE Constituent Group discussion list can be found at http://www.educause.edu/discuss.
We are exploring various models and practices for implementing extensive WiFi coverage in our 14,000 seat arena. We have limited coverage currently but are getting a good bit of pressure to expand it.
Aside from internally funding and implementing a solution, we would appreciate learning about any external partnerships that substantially reduced or eliminated direct investment by the university.
Has your athletics department worked any sponsorship deals that included an independent WiFi implementation?
Have you had success using a commercially-supported provider?
If you have implemented an internally-supported solution, did you find an affordable balance between cost and QOS coverage?
