You will find that partnering with a quality manufacturer always lower the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) of a Wireless Project. Installers often only look at the upfront cost saving when using a cheaper “cost effective” solution. TCO is calculated over the overall duration of a contract, including the cost of support and maintenance during the warranty period. What are the “hidden” costs that you incur installing a cheap solution? This might be 2nd or 3rd call-outs to problem sites, which means overtime, transportation etc. More damaging is the impact on your reputation and loss of future business.
