Setting up the new office network.

Rear of an Excel cat 5 socket Between customer jobs we've been busy setting up the new Ubertechs office and workshop. We have installed trunking around the room and fitted double sockets at each desk and workbench.  Most of the sockets we used were Excel cat 5E modular ones, they are great quality. However towards the end we had to nip to the local electrical wholesalers and had to make do with a couple of Newlec cat 5E ones. Rear of a Newlec cat 5 socket

We terminated the cabling on to a 24 port patch panel in the top of the rack. Below that you can see the 3Com switch. I have since patched the sockets in with 0.3m cables.

At the other end of the rack is the UPS, which we have installed 4 new batteries in recently and directly above that is a Dell Poweredge 2850 server.

Now that BT have managed to move the phone line we can start to think about getting a broadband connection working.
