This Cisco 3702i was spotted peeking out from behind the curtain in a conference room at a hotel. Peekaboo What’s odd to me is that the whole conference level was already blanketed in WiFi. Why the lone AP casually left on the floor? Also, does anyone else immediately wonder what they would get access to if they plugged their own equipment into a public network port like this?

Man, LAX is pretty gnarly. Between taking photos of planes and APs, it's amazing I didn't miss a flight. First off, pretty obvious–at least in Terminal 2– that they're an all-Cisco shop. No shortage of 3702i APs anywhere. Curiously, they also had a healthy amount of 3802e APs (“e” denotes a model with external antennas). I'd love to know why they mixed models like this. They even had the two models fairly well intermixed; a specific model was not just in a specific area.

Yes, even in a crowded club with music, food, drinks, and entertainment, I still keep a watchful eye open for them weefees. This Cisco 3802i AP is mounted on the (low) ceiling as you enter the main room of the Hakkasan Nightclub at the MGM Grand Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. Hakkasan at CLUS 2017

Spruce Meadows is an equestrian facility in Calgary, Alberta which hosts multiple well-known horse jumping events throughout the summer. There’s lots to see there, but of course I had one eye peeled for technology ?. I spotted this Cisco 1532I access point at a distance of a few meters. At that distance, I almost mistook it for a speaker because it’s so small! I guess I’m used-to the larger-sized 1552s. The grey color also didn’t help in identifying it.

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.

Usually you’d expect to find an industrial, IP67-rated access point such as the Cisco IW3702 in a harsh location such as in a manufacturing plant, on mining equipment, or mounted on a pole somewhere outside. But this unit is located at Calgary International Airport (YYC) in the “A” wing of the Domestic Terminal Building. Specifically, it’s in the long, ground-level hall where passengers board the small, regional WestJet planes. Cisco IW3702 at YYC in 'A' Hall

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 folks that organize and run the network at Cisco Live do an awesome job of making sure there's Wi-Fi throughout the entire conference location. They also do not skimp out on the number of APs they deploy. It only happened one time where I was in a room that didn't have an AP (but there was an AP right outside the door). Every other room had at least one AP.

Cisco Live US 2016 was held in Las Vegas this year which meant the Customer Appreciation Event was held in the brand new T-Mobile Arena. This arena has Cisco Stadium Vision which basically means it's tricked out with Cisco-powered digital signs and TVs and of course, pervasive Wi-Fi. At first I couldn't spot any of the APs or antennas! But then I realized they were carefully installed so as to blend into building.

The Target department store in Kalispell, MT has a unique flush mount being used in their hanging ceiling. Guessing those are Cisco 1700 or 2700 series APs? I need to get better at identifying these.

The Fairmont Palliser in Calgary has Meru APs in the lobby. And then in the guest room I found a little AP under the desk with a wired port off it. Curious why this and not APs in the hallway like most hotels.
