Just be careful with Xirrus. A little known secret is that only 3 of those radios can be running in the 2.4ghz band at any time.

That's a pretty neat product -- it seems like it takes care of
spectrally isolating clients by utilizing 4 - 8 radios per AP-box and
8 - 24 directional sector antennas.

I feel like this addresses the suggestions that I and others gave to
utilize more APs rather than a big central one, but it just packages
it all into one box with many antennas.
