The placement of the units, i started small with that to keep initial costs down and see the network not go through many problems initially to keep the service looking reputable. I started with the 2 cafe's in town and added in kiosks. It's simple to set up a wifi rule on the machine using netsh and providing a limited account to keep maintenance down. I then approached the municipality with a proposal to utilize their bandwidth and wireless backbone (im their tech so that probably helped some) to give me the capability to deploy anywhere in town; as well as drop and deploy solutions where no services may be accessible. With this infrastructure in place expansion becomes easy and painless.
All antennas are omnidirectional high gain antennas to help facilitate the original goal of this project, creating a low cost scalable mesh network with a low infrastructure cost.
I've enclosed a couple pictures of device types im using in addition to the 546 units I'm phasing out due to performance reasons. For confidential reason as my points mostly reside @ people businesses in hidden places and municipal government buildings and tower sites i cannot post pictures of those. This has been a transition from a self owned/hosted NOC over to hotspotsystem and so far it's been near flawless and the new system is running great. The few odd issues I've had the staff were great about helping and doing what they can to accommodate any situations. Cant wait to get the rest of the devices over as the town has agreed to allow another few locations including municipal campground and what we call tent city here for a yearly event called the Canadian Death Race
