4 to 600 people connecting to wifi

Need 400 to 600 people to be able to access wifi. I was going to use ubiquiti access points but I understand each unit can handle about 40 connections. How do I accomplish this?

The unifi access points have a hard limit of 127 users but recommend no more than 40. So I would need more than 10 access points to balance the load for 600.

That is the nature of the beast you need many access points to handle the load

So I am correct in my thinking?

What about IP address? A typical DHCP server will issue about 245 IP address right?

400-600 concurrent?
What bandwidth requirements per client?
How big is the space?
5GHz only or do you need 2.4GHz too?

Craig, im sure not everyone will be using their phones all at the same time, but they all need to have access to the internet via wifi. The building is big enough to house 4 to 600 people. Im not worried about 5GHZ, I was thinking 2.4 would be my priority because it has better range.

Noci, im not sure what you mean by
