Cisco Catalyst 3750G stack for GigE transport services, uplinked with 4x SMF-LR SFPs with 5x copper GigE downlinks. A tasty 3750G-12S underneath it sitting unused with an equally tasty SMF long haul SFP.

Some ADC fiber cross-connect cabinets and the fiber patching...

Some rare ONI Systems Online2500 gear for carrier ethernet transport along with a WRN VLX2020 for OC-192/STM-64 SONET services.

A lonely but tricked out Catalyst 5505 with a never-before-seen SMF-LR GigE uplink card in the supervisor and a few lonely fast ethernet drops.

I've seen some pictures of 60 Hudson's hallways and heard about the absolute wiring mess that is/was in that building.

In that case, yes, this is a suite at 60 Hudson.

Damn! 2004? I was like what... 15 or 16 years old then.

Guess you can say that I'm all about the 3rd floor at 60 Hudson.

Did you guys rack those Absolyte battery jars? Those things SUCK.

I spent a week unloading, transporting, and then reloading jars last summer in the desert heat while we built four new cell sites and it was miserable.

Oh, suck it up, ladies... The Absolytes aren't that bad...

We just did a rack of flooded cells at 680# a jar... About 17,000 pounds for the string and racking. Or, roughly twice the weight of the one's pictured here.

I am a little surprised at the Cat5500 - they were MD'd several years ago, and many companies have removed them from service...

Overall, pretty nice work!

The Catalyst 5500 is from an inter-floor cross-connect company that pretty much places one of those bad boys on every floor, in every suite.

Basically if you want 100mbit ethernet from Suite X on Floor 4 to Suite Y on Floor 8, they tell you "plug into port 5/3 on the 4th floor and it will be trunked to port 6/1 on the 8th floor"

I guess it works..

One of the offices I maintain has 9 sets of flooded cells... Just shy of 110,000#. On the 3rd floor.

Ain't being a power guy fun???

Yeah. I have to admit I wish I worked around it more often. Most of the time I am just designing additional equipment spots or more racks with Newmar GMT fuse panels. Rarely do I get to help out the techs with site construction.
