Right. Mirapoints are that way too (at least in our configuration). And yes,
we'll probably have to buy a 5th Mirapoint and/or upgrade our current 4 sooner
because of it - but the incremental cost for that is *still* lower than the
cost of replacing them with another vendor's gear....
Now how do you explain to the CFO that in order to get around a $50K upgrade
to the current gear, you want to spend $200K to bring in another vendor? :)
