WE HAZ NET!

08 Apr 2017, by from Tech:Net

It’s Saturday. On Wednesday 5000 people storm the fort. Or in our case, the Viking Ship.

And the good news is, I can now sit in the NOC and enjoy moving pictures of cute animals.

On a slightly more serious note:

We’ve got the internet uplink up (a week ago).

We’ve got net in the NOC.

The ring is up.

We’re setting up a distro-switch to test a potential issue we might have to work around.

Distro testing...

Our server rack is mostly up.

A couple of servers

And we’ve delivered the first few access nets to the various crews that need it to get work done.

We still have quite a bit of stuff to do, but we’re (slightly) ahead of schedule. To get an idea of what’s left, here are some (!) of our access switches, still in their boxes.

A few meters worth of fiber cable.

And with one last image, I’m signing off and going back to my cat picture. I mean back to work.

See you soon!
