We're going to buy the following stuff. If anyone has any good ideas
on where we can get this stuff for cheaper, please let us know.
I think we should buy the following:
50 x Reliawave DT-ODE-8585 Outdoor Pole Mount Enclosure Kit
They will only change the location of the antenna hole for a
quantity of 100. Prices without shipping are $64.95 for one
unit. $55.20/each (15% off) for 50 units ($2760). $51.96/each (20%
off) for 100 units ($5190). They didn't specifically confirm that
this quote was for units without power injectors so we may get it
for a bit less.
50 x 3054 MP Aries 802.11g MiniPCI card
$89 from netgear.com ($4450)
$75 from hautespot.net ($3750)
40 x Soekris net4511-30
$149 from soekris.com ($7450)
10 x Soekris net4526-30
$152 from soekris.com ($1520)
The soekris boards drop a bit in price if we order 100.
40 x 64MB Compact Flash Cards
$18 from digi4me.com ($720)
This is a price from pricewatch.com. I'm not entirely confident
there isn't a catch. I just requested a quote.
$22.11 from Thenerds.net ($884.40)
50 x pigtails
I haven't gotten a quote back from rfparts.com. I will call them.
guess: $20 ($1000)
50 x 8 dBi antenna
I haven't gotten a quote back from netnimble.com yet. I will call them.
base price: $50 from netnimble.com. ($2500)
200 x RJ-45 connectors
10 x Butyl Mastic Tape and Electrical Tape
1 x Shielded Outdoor Cat5
$319 for 1000 feet. We may not need this now.
total: $20182.50 = ~ $403/node
Cat5 KVM Extender
Belkin OmniView CAT5 KVM Extender - $220.32 from Thenerds.net
3 x 1000VA Back-UPS RS
$185.92 each from Thenerds.net
Netopia 4652 SDSL Router
$315.66 from TheNerds.net
There's more infrastructure stuff but we should wait and buy it later.
