theb businessb canb dob tob ensureb theb safetyb ofb personalb informationb aboutb theb companyb isb

LAPAC1200Cb Dual-Bandb Cloudb Wirelessb Accessb Pointb allowsb youb tob remotelyb manageb
multipleb networks,b accessb points,b andb clientsb underb oneb centralizedb andb easy-to-useb

itemb Isb inb theb priceb rangeb ofb $85.b Butb I’mb prettyb sureb youb canb findb itb ab littleb bitb cheaper.b Theb
POE150Sb Injectorb fullyb compliesb withb IEEEb 802.3afb standardb andb canb workb withb allb IEEEb

withb theb APb thatb Ib chose.b Itb supportsb PoE,b PoE+,b andb Ultrab PoE.b Theb APb isb ab PoE+.b Ib alsob
choseb theb 200b ftb plenumb cableb becauseb withb theb buildingb beingb olderb theb plenumb cableb isb
saferb thanb theb PVCb cable.b Againb itb isn'tb costb efficientb butb itb doesn'tb releaseb toxicb fumesb ifb itb
wereb tob catchb fire.b Theb totalb costb forb theb hotspotb isb aroundb $626.b Theb wirelessb accessb pointb
thatb Ib decidedb tob chooseb isb theb Ubiquitib UniFib Nanob HDb forb ab fewb reasons.b Oneb ofb themb
beingb itb hasb ab longb rangeb withb supportb ofb upb tob 200b simultaneousb usersb asb wellb asb itb canb beb
mountedb tob anyb orientationb youb wantb tob install.b Theb biggestb reasonb isb itb comesb withb ethernetb
switchesb thatb alsob assistb inb itsb supportb forb 802.3afb PoEb compatibilityb withb ab priceb ofb aroundb
$160b forb theb accessb pointb itself.b Ib thenb choseb ab PoEb Texasb splitterb asb itb hasb manyb optionsb forb
whichb everb connectionsb youb decideb tob chooseb forb theb setb up,b andb isb compatibleb withb theb
accessb pointb thatb Ib chose,b whichb onlyb startsb atb theb costb ofb 20b dollars.b Nextb forb ab powerb
injectorb Ib decidedb tob chooseb Ubiquitib Networksb 48/24wb powerb injectorb asb Itb isb fullyb
compatibleb withb theb accessb point,b andb hasb easeb ofb useb withb itb dueb tob theb bothb productsb beingb
madeb byb theb sameb manufacturer.b Finally,b forb theb cablingb tob helpb finishb theb wholeb system,b Ib
wentb withb theb Plenumb Cat6a.b Theb reasoningb beingb isb evenb thoughb itb isb moreb expensiveb
almostb byb doubleb theb cost,b youb getb significantlyb moreb speedb throughb theb Ethernetb viab
plenumb whichb isb aboutb $100.
Overall,b theb costb ofb theb setb upb willb beb betweenb $450b tob aroundb $500b dependingb onb whatb youb
getb withinb theb selectedb purchasesb asb thereb areb manyb optionsb givenb withb each.
Thisb questionb threwb meb forb ab loopb ab littleb becauseb ofb theb olderb buildingb withb lowerb power.b
Fromb myb understandingb historicalb buildingsb needb tob hitb similarb electricalb requirementsb asb
nonb historical.b Thisb isb mainlyb basedb offb safetyb butb certainb typesb ofb wiringb thatb areb notb
installedb todayb areb stillb acceptable.b Forb instanceb knobb andb tubeb wiringb isb veryb unsafeb butb
providesb theb sameb powerb asb ab newb installedb 100b ampb box.b Ifb theb buildingb doesb notb meetb
codeb itb wouldb beb requiredb tob beb upgradedb orb condemnedb andb oftenb timesb insuranceb
companiesb coverb someb orb allb ofb theb buildingb ordnanceb orb lawb forb thisb requiredb change.b
Assumingb thatb theb buildingb doesb meetb theseb requiredb codeb requirementsb andb theb powerb isb
lowerb thanb expectedb thenb Ib wouldb recommendb theb Linksysb AC1750b forb theb Wi-fib Adapter.b Itb
hasb optionsb forb bothb POEb andb Plugb power;b Additionally,b itb hasb ab largerb maximumb
throughputb comparedb tob theb otherb optionb listedb belowb andb canb beb mounterb onb ab wallb orb

andb Polyb Powerb Kitb willb helpb increaseb theb throughputb tob theb Wifib adapterb andb splitb bothb theb
powerb andb datab tob separateb cables.b Thisb willb requireb CAT6ab Cablingb comingb inb atb $58.84b forb
200b feetb orb Plenumb CAT6ab Cablingb comingb inb atb $93.49b forb 200b feet.b Theb totalb costsb ofb thisb
jobb willb beb betweenb 300b -b 350.
Ib understandb myb limitation;b whenb itb comesb tob measuringb wattsb andb makingb sureb Ib haveb theb
rightb amountb ofb powerb isb somethingb Ib amb notb goodb with.b Ib likeb tob stickb tob whatb Ib kindb ofb
understandb andb learnb more.b Ib choseb tob gob withb ab wi-fib wirelessb accessb PoEb powerb overb

Dealingb withb buildingb codesb canb addb timeb restrictsb andb addb cost.b Whenb dealingb withb
