Hi Everyone

 

Just joined Geekzone.  I'm the guy to contact about anything related to Sky Tower.  Posts are emailed to me automatically.  Sky Tower has an extensive data centre and most (if not all) of the major players have a presence there.  If you have any queries just post a comment or email me at warren@jda.co.nz 

 

Cheers

 

Warren Harding

I'd be interested to know how much physical space is left (and how congested the RF is) for putting up p2p wireless links?

Hi Zeon

 

There are 10 telecommunication levels on Sky Tower plus the mast.  The two glass clad levels (where the Internet people are) are about 90% full but that's still quite a bit of available space. Of course many users use the 2.4 GHz and 5.7 GHz bands there.  If you use a WiFi scanner up there it looks pretty busy!  But I think the main issue with regards to interference is likely to be signals aimed back at the Tower not signals originating from it because those signals head out and down with very little reflection.  I don't get many comments from people saying congestion is causing problems which I have to admit is a bit surprising.

Very cool, and welcome aboard!
