My Home network (work in progress)

Click for full size
Click for full size
The router is a 3745 w/ a NM-1GE and a NME-16ES-1G-P

the NM-1GE links to the Comcast SMC for internet

the NME-16ES-1G-P uses 1 100base-TX port to link to my 1242AP and the gig port to uplink to my 2960G 24port gig switch

its still a work in progress as I still need to get more cable managment for the back of the rack and mount my 2U HP server and get a 2nd shelf for my proliant 1600 server and UPS

thus why I only took a pic of the upper portion of the rack (theres 1 shelf in it holding my main computer

then some PDUs in the back that connect to some 1U PDUs at the bottom (the 2 1U PDU's each have 4 outlets but they're not the normal type of outlet and each outlet has its own on-off switch) so they're ment to be connected like this

btw the Rack is a 42U HP rack

you can't see it in the pics but theres a power injector thats in the rack to power the access point, but I plan on removing the need for that later by adding 2x PPWR-PS-360W to the 3745 (which will enable POE on the 16 10/100 ports of the NME-16ES-1G-P, and as the router has dual powersupplies this will also mean that there won't be just 1 ac adapter powering the AP anymore)

the back part of the PDU's have that odd plug thats similer but differant from a computer plug, IE the more squre with rotated blades

C19 outlet perhaps? See:
»www.stayonline.com/detail.aspx?ID=4480
Or one of these (C20 and up): »www.stayonline.com/reference-iec320.aspx

The bottom U1 PDUs have breaker switches, each one is rated for 15 amps, I would hazard a guess and say the far left switch/breaker cuts power to the entire PDU (while providing overload protection). What ever life this rack had in the past, it needed a good deal of power, maybe it held blade servers or a ton of u1 servers.

Why do you have so many PDUs?

If you don't need them at the moment, I would take them out to avoid cramping your cable arrangement when you add equipment later.

well with their design they won't cause any cramping

That 3745 is a big router.. Power hungry is it?

I have a 3725 at home and love it.

I haven't checked the power usage but I'll bet that the proliant 1600 uses more than the 3745

at some point I might try turning it all off and powering on just the router to see the power usage via my UPS.

Btw if you don't know the differance between the NM-16ESW and the NME-16ES

The NME-16ES is basicly a layer3 switch (the 1G is for if it has the gig port option)

the NM-16ESW just comes up as 16 switchports on the router

so the NME-16ES runs its own IOS thats updated any all independantly of the router and the link between the router and the module shows up as a single gig port (so the NME-16ES-1G appears to have 2 gig ports one thats internal and goes directly to the router and 1 that has a real port)

the NM-16ESW just adds 16 switch ports available directly in the router's config

with the NME-16ES-1G you can configure it a few ways, as far as the link between the router and the module it can be thought of asthough you had 2 gig ports and one is uplinked to the router and the other is available to plug something into

you can set it as a trunk port or as a flat port, and as the module is a layer 3 switch you can have it do all the vlan routing and then leave the router to do the WAN/LAN routing and NAT
