Disapprove. There is no need to purchase this equipment at this price. There are plenty of other solutions that are better and cost less (my own company's, for example). Cisco's equipment, even at the "discounted" $700 is absolutely the most expensive and lowest performance that you can buy.

Subject: [802SEC] +++EC Email Ballot+++ Allocation of Funds for the Acquisition of Wireless Access Points for Plenary Meeting Network Support
Dear EC Members,
This is a 10 day email ballot to make a determination on the below motion to allocate additional funds for equipment purchase.
The ballot opens 8PM EDT 5May 2004 and closes 8PM EDT 15May 2004.
Whereas the 802 EC had approved $7,500 for acquisition of 44 Wireless Access Points (WAPs) at the closing EC meeting in Orlando; and
Whereas Cisco Systems has now generously agreed to provide 24 of those WAPs to IEEE 802 for a substantially discounted net value of $3500; and
Whereas that leaves us with the need to acquire 20 additional WAPs on the retail market at an estimated $700 each (total = $14K); and
Whereas we therefore need to allocate an additional $10K to complete the acquisition of the needed equipment in time for our Portland plenary session;
Therefore be it resolved that: the IEEE 802 Executive Committee approves expenditure of up to an additional $10K for Acquisition of Wireless Access Points for Plenary Meeting Network Support (total of $17,500 for the 44 WAPs).
