Love it. That makes me want to go to the local thrift store and pick a couple more up. They are awesome with some DDWRT.

Other end of the apartment and without an attic to run the cable in, I would have run along the ceiling and it was just easier to bridge the switch/coax, disable routing/wireless and allow my router/ASA to pull the IP from Verizon.

Alright, thought I would finally get my lab up on this thread. Nothing special just small and effective!

1x 3560
3x3550
Old POS w/ Ubuntu server running Dynamips w/ 4x quad nics for breakout ports.
Dell T110 loaded (hidden in desk drawer) used for my ESXi server running 3 Junos Olives, a GNS3 server and my home file server.

Thanks!

You cant tell but the desk is falling apart. I dont think it will survive another move. Been chipping away at my wife to get a new desk and chair but money is focused in other areas right now.

Re: Official "post pics of your network" thread

Thu Feb 28, 2013 1:00 pm

When I ran a datacomm business back in the mid-90's, Cisco shunned us and Nortel embraced us, so we became a Nortel partner. The BN was our main router and we used ARNs at client sites, offering Managed WAN services. We kept a few devices as hot spares and these are still kicking around despite being out of service for 12 years. Personally, I find that having another vendor's product in the lab helps with understanding the overall technology, not just from one vendor's perspective. While Nortel's dead for all intents, the Accelar switch still gets fired up every once in a while. My VoIP environment is all CME on a 2821 ISR. I haven't used the Nortel routers since teaching a networking/routing course several years ago.

I don't usually associate Nortel and VoIP, but in a past life, I worked with Northern Telecom (Nortel) SL-1 PBXs. That had to be 1978 or so??

All in all, about $54,000 over 2 years. Mostly purchased through corporate lease returns. Disks were all new, though, and a good 10% of the cost. Part of that cost is now sitting on the floor - I have 2 servers and 3 storage shelves (2 SAN controllers and 1 expansion) that I replaced with larger servers and faster storage. I posted a "lab gear for sale" message in the forum lobby a couple of months back.

Any idea what kind of power consumption you have? Is it running all the time or do you shut down?

Sadly, I know all too well what the power consumption is! :(

For rate comparison, I live in the NYC metro area. My spring/fall electric bill (no heat, pool, or A/C) is about $130/month without the lab, and is about $470 with.. so about $340-350/month in electric to operate it. It does run full time, and I have remote access to it to do dev/test tasks during the day. It takes nearly 45 minutes to bring everything up from a cold start, so I don't do that very often.. maybe once or twice a year for hardware or electrical maintenance.

The bill was higher until recently - I've consolidated my primary storage into a single SAN shelf and shut down 1 of the 3 VM hosts. This saves about $90/month. I only turn those extra devices up for specific tests or projects. There's also infrastructure costs like MSDN llicensing (~$2600/year), VMware partner licensing, and such.

Since migrating to VM 5.1 I have been thinking about renting virtualized servers for lab and development to put a dent in the operational costs. I recently hosted a development project for about 6 months which went pretty well.

My network covers 8 states in the NE region. We have about 140 2811 routers over a MPLS cloud using BGP, iEIGRP, and SIP. T1's going to all the stores. Some of which have 2-3 bonded via mlppp. ;)

I finally put a lab together to prepare for the CCNA.
I've pieced the Cisco equipment together over the past 4 months or so.
Packet Tracer and GNS3 are great but I like the feel of actual hardware.
The 2811 has IOS 15.0(1) and the 1760s have 12.4-15(T14)
Currently planning to test near the end of July.
