The cost is not to make the initial distribution.
Its the ongoing maintenance of it, and not getting improvements made by a name brand vendor. And its the cost in disruption to your business when, your contractor no longer has time to maintain, and you have to start from scratch with someone new.

Just use MT!  Mikrotik and OSPF.  Forget about these automated meshing
systems, which require one vendor, etc. Plus, I know what that is going to do vs some unknown algorithm doing something unforeseen. Really, other than
rapid STP, what else can these things do!

Download the MIT roofnet project files , then select an SOC hardware
platform and
several of you get together hire a linux systems architect on contract
and have him
re-compile to your chosen platform.

Or you could beat the distro (forge it) into submission on the SOC
platform chosen yourselves,
albeit, I think you'll find it is not that expensive to contract it.
