You can achieve it, but you will need a large number of APs at well 
choosen locations. You may want to look at equipment that can handle the 
802.11b/g/n separately instead of degrading everyone to 802.11b. You may 
need to split the location into separate VLANs to prevent overload from 
broadcasts. I'ld say the software is probably the simplest part of such 
a setup.
