At last, come some job that I wish, wireless broadband installation on tanjong bungah beach hotel. This project suppose to be start on September, but due to a lot delay from other non related job, now only started, and the time frame is very short, kinda rush & I have to fully live the wireless system within a week period.
Dell Server, Dlink Access Point, Antenna, Switches arrive
Dell Server was arrive month ago already, I was planning to install freebsd or SUSE 10, but due to my company lack of man power, I have to attend a lot non IT related job, and totally no time to test the server’s performance.
36 Dlink access point (AP), model 3200 have arrive my company last week, I manage to arrange 1 days to configure it, including the IP address, SSID, admin login password and label all the AP.
Also 72 Dlink 7dbi antenna, unlike the previous wifi installation on my Ex-company just use 6dbi antenna only, but the picture in my old post only 2dbi. Below are the outlook of 6dbi antenna and 7dbi antenna.
Soon when I manage to settle all my job, I plan to make a comparison on different antenna, jog down the performance between 2dbi, 6dbi and 7dbi. so stay tune!
First of all, I require to separate all the AP, label it, and wait for configure.
Separate the power cord, adapter, patch cord, poe injector and other accessories accordingly, this is to ensure we easily carry to client side with minimum packages.
We are using Power Over Ethernet for current wireless broadband installation, the above picture are the POE injector.
Regarding Power over Ethernet injector, do you know which pair on the UTP cable supplier power to the network device? I have gather some information on it, but require to make a life experience and make experiment on it, want to know more? stay tune!
Oh ya, regarding the server, this is not a normal bulky server, we call this as 1U server, it seen like very thin, for end user/newbie, some ask does the hard disk, ram, processor, fan able to fit in?
I am going to open the server, and show you guys how the arrangement of hard disk, ram, processor, fan and others… stay tune!
