Cisco equipment testing - Day 1 (06.03.2013)

07 Mar 2013, by Marius Hole from Tech:Net

We in :Net had a testing session at Atea where we unwrapped all the equipment and tested it. This is of course necessary to check whether something was DOA and had to be replaced before TG. We are talking about days (http://tiny.cc/TG13-Countdown) before we have to travel up to Vikingskipet to start configuring the network. :)

The unwrapping of the equipment calls for some MacGyver skills;

And after unwrapping, we ended up with a hallway full of wrapping stuffs oO
