Charleston, South Carolina

Charleston had Wi-Fi all over the place (at least down town, in the market/tourist-y district). They appeared to be using Meraki MR74 or MR84 APs for their city/open Wi-Fi.

The city’s Wi-Fi network was open for anyone to use (I think? I don’t recall if there was a captive portal). Only real complaint is the side of the broadcast domain 😉.

Charleston, SC, free Wi-Fi

Apart from the city’s Wi-Fi, I noticed that the city and/or police appeared to be using Ubiquity to service cameras around the downtown area.

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.

UBNT and Cisco at Fairmont Hotsprings

How horrible would camping be without WiFi?? 😜 There are a few APs scattered around the campground at Fairmont Hotsprings in British Columbia, Canada.

First are some Ubiquity units which I assume are owned by the campground since they are mounted on campground buildings and poles.

Next, Shaw Cable has deployed Cisco 1552C outdoor APs with an integrated cable modem to cover the campground with their Shaw Go WiFi.

The box with the 3 nubs on the bottom is the AP; the box on the right closest to the pole is a Motorola fiber node. I don’t actually know what the middle box is. Anyone know?

At Duke University

I went to Duke University!

As a visitor 😁 And naturally I kept an eye out for wireless gear.

One obvious place I found some: at one of the libraries.

Looks like they’re a Cisco shop on campus.

An unexpected place I saw WiFi was at the Duke Chapel.

I did a quick scan with my iPhone but there were no SSIDs being broadcast inside the chapel. It’s times like this I REALLY WISH Apple allowed better access to the radio in the iPhone so proper WiFi survey apps could come to the device.

One more of Duke University because it was so awesome:

UBNT in Jamaica

Courtesy of the folks at NOBLE WiFi, here are some pics of their Ubiquity installation at the Cliff Hotel and Spa in Negril.

NOBLE provides WiFi to the hotel’s guests, both inside the hotel (common spaces and rooms) and the outside area (like the pool, as shown above).
