Continuing on with this mini series on Wi-Fi at airports, here’s a couple of shots from O’Hare (ORD). ORD seems to be in the middle of either an evaluation/bake-off or a transition between vendors because I saw a healthy amount of Aruba and Cisco in the terminal (I don’t remember which terminal this was in).
Aruba at ORD
This looks like an Aruba AP-228 which, if I’ve identified this correctly, does make some sense because I spotted this unit in the jet bridge getting onto the plane and if you’ve ever walked on/off a plane somewhere in Canada in the dead of winter, you KNOW those things do not have very good temperature control.
Hey Bob, we ran out of mounting brackets.
No problem Jim, I’ve got an idea…
I was in a concert hall yesterday and spied two APs in the ceiling, practically on top of each other.
On the left is an Aruba AP from TELUS (their TELUS Direct WiFi) and on the right is a Cisco AP from Shaw (their ShawOpen WiFi).
Anyone want to bet they totally worked together to avoid co-channel interference? 🙄
