Not sure how many wifi access points your facility needs? Here is some information that can help!
There’s both art and science involved in determining the number of access points required for a given area. The idea is to have most visitors within 30 to 60 feet of an access point. This equates to one access point every 3,000 to 11,000 square feet. The right quantity depends on the number of walls, electronic interference, etc. In general, it is best to over-compensate. Here are two examples:
- Put at least one on each floor a typical fast-food outlet would be one per floor.
Amusement / Arcade Park :
- Put one in each major zone – there are generally more wireless transmissions and electrical interference so we would increase the density.
*If you are still unsure then we recommend starting with the basic quantity of two and updating them as needed!
