Shaw Cable runs a massive Wi-Fi network in Canada that provides hotspot service in every (?) market that Shaw has a presence. Cranbrook, BC is one of those markets and I could not believe how many APs Shaw has hanging on poles there. All up and down the main street you can see the Cisco 1552s hanging on the messenger wire between poles. Cisco 1552 broadcasting Shaw hotspot

When I was in Banff recently, I saw this AP at a construction site. The odd thing is I don’t recognize it and can’t find it on Any ideas?

I was in a concert hall yesterday and spied two APs in the ceiling, practically on top of each other. On the left is an Aruba AP from TELUS (their TELUS Direct WiFi) and on the right is a Cisco AP from Shaw (their ShawOpen WiFi). Anyone want to bet they totally worked together to avoid co-channel interference? 🙄

The Delta Banff Royal Canadian Lodge in Banff Alberta has UBNT everywhere. I like the simple look and lighting of these UniFi line of APs. They remind me of little flying saucers hovering near the ceiling. 👽

Cisco TACOPS has the NERV but also has some light duty vehicles that can supplement the NERV or be dispatched on their own. I took these photos of the vehicles parked on the Cisco campus in RTP, NC. Here’s a 1552E outdoor AP on the SUV.
