HAI ALL;


I HAVE BEEN REQUESTED TO MAKE A PALACE UNDER WIRELESS NETWORK COVERAGE. THIS PALACE COMES AROUND 3000 SQ.METERS. ONE HALL OF THE PALACE IS HAVING BROADBAND CONNECTIVITY ON WHICH WE CAN CONNECT A WIRELESS ROUTER. THE PRINCE WILL NOT ALLOW TO USE NETWORK CABLES. SO IS THERE ANY POSSIBILITY  TO MAKE THE PALACE UNDER WIRELESS COVERAGE, WITH OUT USING ANY CABLES. WHICH WIRELESS ROUTER OR ACCESS POINT CAN COVER AT LEAST 1000 SQUER METERS.


REGARD AND THANKS IN ADVANCE

ACCESS POINT CAN COVER AT LEAST 1000 SQUER METERS.

This doesn't help.  What's the shape of the building?  How high is the ceiling?  How do you expect to install the APs?   How thick are the walls?



NOT ALLOW TO USE NETWORK CABLES

How do you install the APs?


I think you need to fly me over there so I can make some recommendations.     He he he ...

BUILDING IS IN A ROUND SHAPE. WALLS ARE THICK AROUND 20 CM. WE CAN CONNECT ONLY ONE AP TO THE ROUTER WHICH IS ALREADY CONNECTED, OR WE CAN CONNECT ANY WIRELESS ROUTER ITSELF ON THE PLACE OF EXISTING ROUTER. IF MORE THAN ONE AP IS NECESSARY, THEN I THINK WIRELESS BRIDGING OR WIRELESS MESH MAY HELP. BUT I DONT KNOW WHICH ALL DEVICES CAN BE USED FOR THIS. COULD U PLEASE GIVE ME A SUGGESTION ...........?

You definitely need a WLC/WiSM, that's for certain.  Your WLC/WiSM needs to run Mesh IOS/Firmware.

How do you plan to power up the APs?


Next tricky part is what type of Mesh WAP are needed.


You need 1500 Mesh AP.
