So you want to buy a node ?

So you've read over the prerequisite material (in particular the SoYouWantToBeANodeOwner page) and you are ready to plunk down the plastic and buy some kit. Alright!

This page covers the specifics of what to purchase in various deployment models. Please keep in mind this is only a base set of requirements, based on several existing deployments. Site specific variables will certainly apply. All the bottom line numbers below are rounded up to the nearest $100.00 and another $200.00 added on for wiggle room. Often times, you may only get one shot at funding a deployment, best to ask for more and be able to come in under budget. All prices below DO NOT include toolkit or consumables. FNF certified installers (from our MESHWORKS division) will work out a detailed quote for the installation (labor) and any consumables (staples, zip ties, screws, nails) etc with you before work begins (following the procedure outlined here: SoYouWantToBeANodeInstaller. Of course, you can also perform the installation yourself, but any work not performed by certified installers will receive no support from the FNF.
