The wirelesss network at the Superdome - 30,000 connections!
This is pretty interesting: »arstechnica.com/information-tech ··· devices/
It's about setting up the wireless network for the Superbowl. 600 AP's inside, 250 more to cover the parking lot. I'd like to see the post mortem to find out how well it all worked.
At least for 34 minutes or so!
Maybe the additional load of all those AP's was just enough to push a circuit breaker over the edge...
"The NFL manages to spread 60 minutes of clock time across three hours in a typical game. What with time running off the clock between plays and the typical play lasting about four seconds, an average game ends up with only 11 minutes of action."

Interesting technical read HarryH3
I wish there were more details. That's a LOT of RF to have reflecting off all the walls in a round building that is wide open.
With all that energy you didn't have to worry about your hot dog getting cold on the way back to your seat.
