ich habe mal der Firma Meraki Networks geschrieben und angefragt, ob es da noch
Router fÃ¼r uns gÃ¤be. Heute kam auch eine Mail mit PDF Anhang, die ein Passwort
fÃ¼r den Shop beinhaltete. Nachdem ich mich dort eingeloggt hatte, bekam ich
erstmal einen dicken langen Vetragstext vorgesetzt, der es IMHO auch in sich hat.
Also der Meraki Router kostet im Beta Programm 49$ (Porto: keine Ahnung). Es
mÃ¼ssen mindestens 3 StÃ¼ck bestellt werden und die enthaltene Meshsoftware soll
fÃ¼r 3 Monate in Betrieb genommen werden.
Auf der Homepage tÃ¶nt es noch ganz toll: "Meraki's hardware platforms are open,
and we encourage others to modify and extend them." oder hier
http://meraki.net/openplatform.html. Aber im unten kopierten Vertragstext stehen
die Ã¼blichen VerdÃ¤chtigen: nix reingucken, nix verÃ¤ndern, nix Ã¼ber Performance
Und hier ein paar Fragen:
Ist der Meraki Router fÃ¼rs OLSR Experiment interessant genug?
WÃ¼rden sich noch zwei Abnehmer fÃ¼r die Meraki Router finden (inklusive
Einhaltung der Beta Richlinien?)
Und hier der Schrieb:
Meraki Networks, Inc.
