Can full wireless coverage be created for large, high-density, outdoor events?

By Denise De Albuquerque

WiFi has become ubiquitous in recent years, with nearly everyone carrying a smartphone or WiFi-enabled devices. But when people get together for a concert, stadium game or social event, providing full coverage for a large crowd in outdoor scenarios can be challenging. There are several factors to consider, including the size and layout of the event space, the number of attendees and the available WiFi infrastructure. In addition, these outdoor activities may also experience interference from buildings or other obstacles.

Despite these challenges, providing full wireless coverage for high-density outdoor events is 100% possible. TP-Link’s Omada SDN offers the most reliable outdoor WiFi networking solutions designed to provide superior coverage and performance, even in the most challenging outdoor conditions. We offer a wide range of products to suit any outdoor WiFi need, from small home offices to large enterprise deployments.
