Description

We have a mission: to make technology an added value for your company. Palazzo Caracciolo was built in 1584 in Naples (Italy) on the site of a Castle donated by Roberto d'Angiò to Landolfo Caracciolo and of which some vestiges can still be seen. It is a majestic, imposing building, whose severe facade hides a beautiful cloister, today covered by an original impluvium and a lovely garden. Given the age and prestige of the structure we had to solve some issues concerning the coverage of the signal and the passage of cables mainly due to the thickness of the walls of the building. After careful evaluations and measurements we have created one of the most beautiful and performing plants in an extraordinary location.

The plant was built using Ubiquiti UniFi equipment, in detail 45 UAP-AC-LR Access Points to cover the hotel's rooms and the interior of the structure, 5 UAP-AC-Mesh for the cloister and outdoor spaces , 2 UAP-AC-PRO for conference and meeting rooms, 1 24-port PoE switch, 2 16-port PoE switches, 1 8-port switch, 1 Security  Gateway.The work lasted 3 months from design to implementation.

Why not go full unifi switches? seems strange to not go all the way. But still nice install and location.

1 24-port PoE switch,

2 16-port PoE switches,

1 8-port switch

 

those look to be UniFi switches . . . as shown in the pictures of the products used at the head of the article.

@Uberseehandel, look at the topology diagram + count the total number of ports and aps i get 1 port too little.

@florisvdk I count 57 usable device ports and 50 AP ports unless I'm missing something simple?

@AdrianLevi Look at the topology map included in the post. And i forgot about the sfp ports on the switches.

Nice job.

 

The UFO-Style UniFI AP's are designed to be mounted on the ceiling, that's where you get the best speed and coverage out of it.

According to the pictures, some of the AP AC LR / Pro could be easily mounted to the ceiling.

Bel lavoro Ragazzi ! @Mtksrl

 

@cempa: Unfortunately, you should understand that the palace were they installed the system is under Superintendence of Cultural Heritage, make some kind of restrictions about strange body added to the project approved. Also, I'm pretty sure that was really hard to deploy cat cable into the electrical pipes Icon Rolleyes
