Kart Racing Facility Improves Track with Wi-Fi Mesh

By Anuradha Shukla, TMCnet Contributing Editor

LeMans Karting in Fremont, Calif., is adding ArrowSpan’s Wi-Fi Mesh Access Points to its super fast track. With ArrowSpan’s MeshAP 1100 the racing facility can provide fast Internet access in addition to fast karts.

“ArrowSpan’s mesh access points provided our facility with much needed Wi-Fi Internet access, which is used by our employees and our customers, which can now book our corporate conference room and outdoor facilities for company events and functions,” said Rick Gaan, president of LeMans Karting in a press release.
He continued: “This is the fastest indoor karting facility in the Bay area, and ArrowSpan’s mesh nodes allow us to offer our customers and staff the fastest, most secure and scalable mesh network.”
LeMans Karting required only three MeshAP 1100 units to provide the 32,000 sq. ft. indoor facility and additional 20,000 sq. ft. outdoor event space with seamless Wi-Fi access. This European-style indoor kart-racing facility required the solution so that both the employees and customers can enjoy the freedom of going wireless.
Gaan plans to add wireless cameras in each of their karts, to capture and stream the thrill of racing from the drivers’ perspective.
The MeshAP 1100 from ArrowSpan is a full duplex access point which can reach signal strength of up to 182m (600ft) in open space. The dual radio design of the solution provides better wireless coverage and is compatible with third party Access Servers, IP devices and Network routers.
