UBNT at the Wynn Casino Las Vegas

It’s not uncommon to see APs in the casinos in Las Vegas, however this one at the Wynn is a little odd in that it’s a) installed on the casino level in plain site, with no attempt to conceal it or blend it in and b) it’s installed just a few inches above the floor.

I have no idea what it’s wired into amongst all those plants.

Outdoor Meraki at Golden Spike Casino

The Golden Spike Casino in Las Vegas has a cool outdoor area with lots of games. They’re covering the area with Wi-Fi via Meraki MR66s.

What’s interesting is the way they’ve mounted these APs on the pole. There’s three of them mounted around the pole in a way that appears they want to use them almost like sector antennas. I imagine the metal pole sitting behind each AP doesn’t help the RF. Hopefully they’re allowing the Meraki cloud to do automatic channel assignment. 😊

Up on the wall there’s another MR66 (I’m quite certain it’s not an MR62 which only has two antennas).

The question I had here was: did they remove two of the antennas for RF reasons (doubtful) or because they mounted it too close to the panel antenna right above? 😁 Or worse, is the panel antenna plumbed into the AP?? I could’t tell in the dark.

Dusty AP at Four Queens Casino

Is dust transparent to RF? 😁

This AP is hanging in the Four Queens Casino on Freemont Street in Las Vegas. It’s obviously been there for a while because you can literally see the dust hanging off the antennas and power cord.

The best part is what you can’t see though: this thing is 802.11b only. Which means it tops at 11Mbps. And uses 2.4Ghz exclusively. I suppose they’re not counting on a lot of Wi-Fi users 🙄

Looks like this AP is an AP4131 made by a company called Symbol (now part of Morotola? So now part of Google??).
