I collected my package last Thursday at KLIA's Custom complex after receiving confirmation that everything has been cleared. I had the option to just wait for the package to be delivered by Saturday, but I felt like going as I thought I could learn few things along the way (which I really did, and is very thankful that I made that choice).
These are the items that were packed into the box;
Here's one of the 2 PoE (Power ove Ethernet) sets. The cable that came with it couldn't be fitted into our local power socket. It took me hours to actually find the right replacement cable, and it costed me RM25 each!
I placed order for 3 high powered mini-pci radio
and it's the Ubuquiti's XR5, running at 600mW average, and 1000mW peak; the highest I could find.
The order also included 2 units of Gateworks GW2358-SP185.
It's a single board computer with Intel IXP 435 processor running at 667MHz, and comes with 128MB RAM, 32MB flash memory, 2 ethernet port, 2 USB port, 4 mini-pci port, 2 RS232 ports
and it also has 1 CF card slot at the back.
2 units of minibox's outdoor enclosure were also ordered. It came with 4 pigtails, a cooling fan, a heatsink, and complete mounting kits.
I also order the development kits to yes, do some development with the board.
Which the kits consist of another GW2358-SP185, some development manuals, and related tools (hardware and software). It'll be used to install operating systems and doing proper configuration to the boards. Yes, it's Linux based.
I'm sure some would argue; Why custom build, while there are many off the shelf solutions availaible, and some are much cheaper than what I currently build? Well, I have my (good) reasons, and will probably share it during the testing
