802.11 Wireless Between Buildings on a Campus
Posted on 2014-01-16
Looking for a reliable solution for 802.11 networking between buildings on a small campus. One building will serve as the hub and I need to extend networking to up to 3 other buildings that are separated from the hub by somewhere between 200-400 feet. There will be between 2 and 4 users in each of the outlying buildings.
I've used Aruba/Azelia product for this before but that solution seems like overkill in this environment.
I intend to make a small hardwired ethernet / wireless network in each of the buildings but want to use wireless to get between them. I am not interested in "jury-rigging" things, I'm looking for hardware/vendor recommendations that can accomplish this as cleanly as possible.
Of course as with everything else, budget is an issue, but not to the point of sacrificing quality / reliability.
