Welcome to Panama's ERate section. We have links to WAN documents and other location documents. Vendor questions along with responses will also be posted here as they become available. Check back often.
What is the 7,000 feet of cabling for? We have 45 flat panels currently on WiFi and we want cable installed for each of them. The cable will run from the main switch to each flat panel. Additionally, cables need to be ran from the Upper Elementary main switch to the classrooms at each end of the building (at least two per room). Some of our APs throughout the district need cables ran from the main switch to the AP. Total drops are LE-21, UE-18, MS-5, HS-22. Total drops is 66.
Do you just want Ubiquiti Lites on APs? Two of the APs going in the Event Center must be capable of pairing up to support at least 400 simultaneous connections. We prefer UniFi nanoHD Access Points for event center but will consider other options. The rest of the APs can be Ubiquiti Lites.
What size UPS? We need the UPS to support our switches in each building. We prefer rack mount for ease of installation and maintenance.
