Outdoor WiFi is simply where WiFi access is provided outside of a building. Outdoor WiFi is usually used as an extension of the internal wireless LAN network of an organisation, to give users a continuous WiFi service. Typically scenarios for outdoor WiFi include the outdoor areas of a school, college, university, holiday park, hospital, hotel or shopping centre.
Distances, Throughputs and Frequencies of Outdoor WiFi
Outdoor WiFi operates in the 2.4 or 5GHz frequency and can achieve theoretical throughputs of up to 1.7Gbps – true throughputs depend mainly on client devices and the quality of the wireless access point. Outdoor APs are often deployed with “sectored antennas” focusing the wireless coverage onto a specific area thus providing a stronger and faster WiFi connection.
