Design rationale

Using this Node Factory setup for building a network node it is very easy to setup and deploy wireless nodes, while ensuring a maximum of maintainability. The low-level configuration of each node is nearly identical and by using version control and the configuration database it is very easy to track down changes and keep these documented. A last important point is that using Open Source software the complete system will end up to be very cheap.
