I am in the understanding that we will be able to purchase licenses for Turbocell for some time but that support and upgrades will not be available. I will not make any statements as to how long this will last.
We currently put our CPE's together using ARC Wireless 19 dbi panels, WRAP Boards, POE, Power Supply, Hermes II mini-pci cards, 64 Mb Compact Flash, and a license (SV-4100-H) Total cost of these excluding labor is about $320. We are not building new Turbocell networks! We are only adding clients to existing Turbocell networks and continue to build out mini-cells with Star-OS and WRAP boards in a Hotspot format. I don't know that you have much choice for Turbocell CPE other than build your own.

I've heard alot about these WRAP boards. Is this something we would put together ourselves or are there products available. What are the costs like? I guess I'd really be interested in what I should be doing for CPE going on, assuming we can still get the Turbocell licenses (see post from Blair Davis re: Winncomm continuing to be able to sell Turbocell licenses).
