Need Advice for Multiple Public WAPs

By jdobbs ·
I've been tasked with purchasing and installing multiple wireless access points in a building which will be be used by the public for free. I've decided to go with Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) WAPs due to lack of power outlets near WAP locations. I've never been down this road before so I'm hoping someone can help with a few following questions!

1. I'm looking for PoE WAP and injector which are stable, easy to setup, yet doesn't cost several hundred dollars for each (In the end there is the possiblity of 48+ WAPs).

2. I'd like the WAP to support a short omni antenna or a flat antenna as these will be mounted to a low ceiling and there could be clearance issues.

3. Last if anyone has tackled a project like this I'd like to hear from them about possible issues or other items which could be notable.

Thanks for the help!
