The IETF Meeting Network has become integral to the success of any physical IETF meeting. Building such a network, which provides service to thousands of heavy users and their multitude of devices, spread throughout the event venue, with very little time for setup and testing is a challenge. This document provides a set of requirements, derived from hard won experience, as an aid to anyone involved in designing and deploying such future networks.
