Lighting Up the Largest RV Park

Outside Tampa is the largest RV Dealer and Park in the US. Lazy-Days. Don Wallace (the owner and Tampa socialite) has had a bad year, so he decided to light it up with wireless Internet Access.

The network provides coverage over the entire 126-acre RV destination complex ... The complex includes an 86,600 square foot main building, 273 services bays, 300 RV campsites, more than 1,000 RV’s on display, and an RV service and collision center. There’s also a Camping World store, Cracker Barrel restaurant and Flying J RV Travel Plaza. The network covers both indoor and outdoor facilities, providing free high-speed wireless Internet access to customers and visitors. It also allows RV sales consultant, on-site factory sales representatives and services personnel to have instant access over the network through laptops, handhelds and other devices for interaction between sales representatives, service advisors, management and other personnel" [TBBJ]

I have to say, I didn't know Strix was still in business. Go figure. And why didn't Wallace go with a local company like Rapid Systems?
