Network is Go

Breaking news from the meeting of the Economising Committee… I can spend up to N$ 2410 (about £200) on the last few bits of network equipment to start installing wired ethernet.

Previous volunteers have managed to get a 16-port switch, 1000m of CAT5e cable, 50 RJ-45 ends, a crimping tool and trunking.

I have now got authorisation to buy a patch panel, a Krone tool and RJ-45 wall sockets. Also, being weak, I have included lots of 1m and 3m patch cables (making cables up… argh).

Structured cabling here we come! Now it’s just a matter of waiting for the purchase order to arrive and then to see what the supplier lead times are like.
