net4801 lite is here!

Now available in red or black

Our cut down case for the net4801 has finally arrived, and it looks great.

With an SMA punchout, space for a hard drive and one serial port, the net4801 lite has all the same features of the net4801, except there’s no space for a PCI card or DIN rail clips.

And there’s a wide range of options to choose from too – case colour, memory, CF card, operating system, miniPCI card, pigtail, antenna, power supply and hard drive mounting bracket.

You can have a look at the net4801 lite in more detail in the online shop or on our case info page.

Melbourne Wireless node upgrade

Upgrading the Mount Dandenong node (Node GHO)

Our featured case study this month is from the Melbourne Wireless community network in Victoria.

Recently, Melbourne Wireless upgraded their premier network node on Mount Dandenong (Node GHO) using Voyage Linux on a couple of our WRAP 1-1 boxes.

Despite being hampered by our lovely Melbourne weather, the upgrade was a success, and they are now achieving greater throughput and distance, and are using minimal power.

Read more about it on our case studies page.

Product changes

We’ve made our Yawarra black case, with two serial ports, the default for the net4801 box. So the list price is now $495, but you can still choose the Soekris green or Yawarra blue case from the product options, the same as before.

We’ve also decided to discontinue our silver WRAP 1 cases, so hopefully you silver case fans out there (wherever you are) can find another colour from our rainbow of choice that will satisfy.

Extra bits

net5501 coming soon

The net5501 will be coming soon, we promise! With 4 network ports, a faster processor (433 or 500MHz) and more memory (256 or 512MB), this one will be worth waiting for.

We’re currently having compliance testing done on it, and hope to have something for you by August. We’ll initially offer the net5501 in the standard Soekris green case, as well as in our groovy dual rack mount case.
