plone conference [1] is coming up and due to sad circumstances we are
short of wifi equipment and solid knowledge about it. I talked to
rubin110 in #noisebridge who told me to write to you.

The conference will take place on the downtown SFSU campus, it'll be
around 300 people, over 2000 sqft, 8 rooms, all on one floor. We expect
a lot of connections per person as everybody will be waving their mobile
phones and run buildouts, that trigger many connections. Conclusion is
that consumer hardware won't cut it. Most users will be on Macs.

1st/2nd Nov there'll be tutorials, 3rd-6th conference,
7th/8th sprints.

Could you help us with with equipment?
Could you recommend us equipment to buy?
Could you help setting things up?

rubin110 recommended http://ubnt.com/unifi - thoughts about that?
