For outdoor, you need a Cisco Aironet 1500 Lightweight Outdoor Mesh Access Point (http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/ps6548/index.html).

For indoors, you can use ... ALOT! For indoor use with alot of corners, use the latest model that also comes with Draft N 2.0, the 1140 (http://www.cisco.com/en/US/prod/collateral/wireless/ps5678/ps10092/datasheet_c78-502793.html).

Before you go and make a decision, make sure you have a Wireless Site Survey conducted. This will enable you and your company deploy the right amount AP at the right location and eliminating un-necessary guess work.

Hope this helps.
