Hello,
I have used 1800nos. AP to cover my plant. Can you suggest what major effected parameter for seamless connectivity? I have dense trees, tall buildings, RCC structure etc in this area. Waiting for your reply.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I have a background in military communications, and, using an Omni-directional antenna, especially with all of those obstacles just will not do it.  You will need to set up rely point throughout your plant. 

Use a WIFI finder, a smartphone will do, and find the strong and weak points in your structure.  Pinpoint them on a diagram of the plant and from there, setup your relay equipment to cover the weak points. 

Did this many times setting up retrains sites in the field.  Need to cover everything, even if it means getting more equipment.  An Omni-directional antenna was never that good of an antenna.

    Major effected parameters for seamless connectivity? Could be dense trees, tall buildings, RCC structures or other things. If those are all elements of your site that need attention, then there will be likely problems.

    Harisheldon's answer is on the mark.
