Do I need BAM if I am running a third party billing software such as IP3. This is a third party solution that is on the canopy pages. We are looking at deploying this software with our small WISP. My question is, do i also need to spend the money on BAM, and why?

thanks for any help.

BAM is very usefull if you want to add securiry to your network, without BAM is easy to everyone with a SM and a sniffer to access your AP (even your network) without much effort.

Yeah, we are looking at purchasing BAM. I understand that this has to run on a Linux server. Not being a Linux guy, this may be a challenge for me. We are also going to run IP3 as our billing software. Any additional info you guys have on IP3 or the linux server setup would be helpful.

Thanks ahead of time.
