Does anyone have any recommendations for AP/antenna locations to provide coverage in elevators and stairwells? Buildings are no more than 5 stories. I've heard of using a directional antenna at the top of an elevator shaft, but that WCS apparently doesn't like that (although I'm not exactly sure how I would place an AP on a map if it was located on top of the elevator car either????). Any suggestions would be appreciated!
The lobby approach may work. I suppose a DAS (leaky coax in the shaft) might also. That's probably more complicated than its worth. How about a dual-radio wireless bridge in the car with a directional backhaul radio/antenna pointing to the top of the shaft (law permitting), and another radio downward into the car itself and you may have something. Power feed will have to come through existing capacity or elevator conduit. A new breed of wireless squatter is born.
Ewww.. every time I see leaky coax in a sentence I throw up in my mouth a little. How is it that a pipe with holes in it can have the same signal at the beginning as at the end? are the holes smaller in the beginning and larger at the end to compensate for attenuation? Sir, if you or anyone else knows this, I would be most grateful.
I like the dual radio bridge idea - but if you could do that you could stick a yagi antenna at the top of the shaft and shine down all that RF love on the unsuspecting occupants below it. At some point customer expectations have to be set or rules have to be bent, I usually let them decide.
