Wireless LAN for 4 000 clients in small area of 65m x 120m

I are planning to make a wireless network for 4000 PDAs (802.11g) in a trade fair has dimension of 65m (width) x 120m (long) x 11m (height). Accesspoints is placed near the ceiling (10m heigth).

I have search on the internet, but there are no way to do this (in my opinion).

I am a newbie in wireless.

Why doy think there is no way? Split clients over channels 3 or 4 channels and you should have no issue.

I agree with Paolo. If there's a will, there's a way.

Firstly, how many AP's are you planning to deploy?

Are you using Cisco's Wireless APs, WLC and WCS?

To manage that large amount of APs, a Wireless LAN Controller and Wireless Controller System combination will provide network managers a true plug-n-play wireless experience. Just do the configure ONCE.

Hope this helps.

I could see where it might be very difficult, especially if the PDAs need to roam within the trade fair and limited to 802.11g. Perhaps somthing like Xirrus's Wi-Fi Array might help.

You might repost the question in the "Wireless - Mobility" forum.
