WAD-120 server can wirelessly distribute the audio of up to 40 TV channels in mono or 20 TV channels in stereo. Please note that the number of TVs can be far more than the number of channels, as some TVs may show the same channels.
The number of customers who can login and enjoy the audio is unlimited. Using a single access point, such as Ruckus Zoneeflex 7372, the WAD-120 server can service approximately 500 customers. Then using multiple access points with a network switch or hub, the WAD-120 server can distribute the TV audio to the multiples of 500 customers, as many as needed without losing the service quality.

The WAD-120 server requires an wireless router or access point to distribute the digital audio to smartphones and tablets. The required speed of the router or access point is 802.11n.
The decision to use a router or an access point depends on whether to use the WAD-120 server with its internal DHCP server enabled or disabled. The default setting is enabled, and thus requiring an access point.
At times when the WAD-120 server must connect to an exiting network in a location, the existing network is likely to have its own router, thus its own DHCP server enabled.
It is then necessary to disable the internal DHCP server of the WAD-120 server and you can do so following the instruction at
How to connect a WAD server to an existing network
The choice of a router or an access point matters significantly on the quality of the TV audio received by the customers. It determines how stable the transmission is as well as how easily the customers can connect. The three main features of a router or an access point that we recommend are
802.11n Dual bands (2.4Ghz and 5Ghz) Gigabit LAN port
A larger bandwidth of a router or an access point is often advertised as a selling point in the market. It is also essential to the WAD-120 server as it roughly determines how many customers can login at any one time. Note however that the number of customers that can connect and listen to the TV audio can be increased by using a multiple of the routers or the access points. Connecting a number of the rounters or the access points using a network switch or a hub, the number of the customers listening can increase without limit and without losing the quality of the TV audio or latency.
Here are some of the routers and access points that are currently used with the WAD-120 server.
