The customer needed to provide secure WiFi internet access across their golf course for and event where data would be captured by staff walking the fairway. They needed course wide battery powered WiFI infrastructure as well as dedicated high speed Internet connectivity. However locations to deploy WiFi on the course were strictly limited.
We deployed battery powered long range carrier grade WiFi infrastructure in all of the available identified locations, but the coverage from those APs wouldn’t reach the farthest corners of the course. To provide total coverage we built battery powered APs into custom backpacks to extend the WiFI network to where it was needed, and to guarantee coverage, we added cellular connectivity to each back pack too so that when it was out of range of the main infrastructure WiFi clients could still connect to the internet.
