Night Club for up to 2000users

Hello all

 

im fairly new to ubiquiti and im searching for a solution for a client that have a night club

 

The club at max can take up to 2000 ppl and its a single not so large space so its pretty dense space 

 

what im thinking is to use is 

 

2 x  Ubiquiti UWB-XG, UniFi BaseStation XG, 802.11ac Wave 2 Access Point

or 4 x UAP-AC-HD ?

1 x Ubiquiti Poe Switch (i want recomendations)

1 x Ubiquiti USG-PRO-4 UniFi Security Gateway PRO, 2x LAN, 2x Combo WAN

2 x 5/50mbits lines (yes i know its rediculus but its what we can have)

1 pc for running the controller (i want recommendations on  specs if posible)

 

what i want is from equipment wise to meet the client requirements which is a wifi network to be able to hold 2000 ppl at weekend peeks

 

you think this setup is ok for that  any thoughs and recommendations ? 

 

thank you in advance

Hello @dmit2018,

 

Do you have pictures of the area?

Do you have floorplans?

 

A Cloud Key G2 should be able to handle this.. but a old PC running Ubuntu is also possible Man Happy

How are you going to handle 2k users on on these internet lines?

Hi @dmit2018 

 

You shoudl consider a cloud controller so that you can manage remotely

 

You won't need the PC to host the controller locally

 

You can use AWS or here is a link for a free google hosting https://www.instructables.com/id/Unifi-Controller-on-Google-Cloud-Platform-GCP/

Re: Night Club for up to 2000users

A cloud controller isn't required to manage remotely. You can install the controller on a PC you have running all the time, such as a server you have there. If you don't have a server (which seems weird for a night club) then yes a cloud controller or Cloud Key would be recommended.

 

If you only need 8 or less network ports, the 8-150w will suffice. You may want to jump to the 16-150w for future expansion though.

 

I'm trying to picture 2000 people on a 5/50 line.

hello all and thank you for your fast replies

 

To answer your questions its pretty much a sigle space of 25m x 41m 

 

Questions!

 

1 )Should i go for 2 x  Ubiquiti UWB-XG, UniFi BaseStation XG, 802.11ac Wave 2 Access Point

or  4 x UAP-AC-HD ? my thinking is to install them on the middle of the space back to back or share them at 4 halfs of the space if it will be the UAP-AC-HD

 

2) an Ubiquiti UCK-G2-PLUS UniFi Cloud Key Gen2 Plus would be sufficient to handle the dhcp requests and posible rate limitings or qos rules for so many requests or should i go blindly for an I5 with 8GB ram ? im unable also to find its specs

 

3)an 8 port switch should be ok conserning the ports BUT should i go for bigger one since bigger switches are tend to be able to manage more bandwith with less effort?

 

yeap i know the lines suck but thats what i can get at the current time and we informed the client that when it will have a lot ppl internet would be pretty much non excistent 

 

what you think should be a sufice line for these numbers? we think a 200mbps up/down line should be sufice for these numbers keeping in mind that 2000 users is the max it can posibly go as far as ppl concern

 

thank you all in advance

Hello @dmit2018,

 

The UCK G2 don't handle DHCP... it's to configure the devices/host the guest portal.

We need floorplans/pictures of the place...

 

All UniFi Switches are rock solid, get one that fits your needs.

Hello @dmit2018,

 

It's just the controller device... It doesn't do DHCP at all... May I ask where you got that information from?
