For more than $3000, I do not see how this is worth the money. The centralized access would be nice, but I do not think we have a need at this point. Using each server's LOM works fine, particularly when this costs almost as much as a good server. [[User:Brandon Vargo|Brandon Vargo]] 14:09, 2 February 2008 (EST)

This is the Computer Systems Lab idea / wish list. Please place items here that might be useful for the CSL. Please include descriptions/explanations, prices, and links to be helpful.

Semi-discussed

Lab Wiring

  • Cat5e / Cat6 cable in 1000ft spools (in excess of 20,000 feet for all workstations)
  • New patch panel that is Cat5e / Cat6 compliant for >=96 ports
  • New drops along the glass wall?
  • Cable organizers?

New Linux Servers

  • One or Two new Linux servers, as the newest Linux servers are over 1.5 years old
  • Replace aging servers for production purposes (adelie and penguins)
  • More technical details after we have more budget details

Line Cards / Accessories for Cisco 4506 Switch

  • 48 port gigabit line card - WS-X4548-GB-RJ45 or WS-X4448-GB-RJ45 (older version)
  • 10GbE uplink to the main switch (if that gets 10GbE this year)?

Ideas

New Projector for Classroom Area

  • Main benefit would be a better resolution, as the current projector is only 1024x768

Sun Ray laptops

--wyang

  • Up to 10, depending on determined need/want and available budget at time of purchase
  • Would be used by student and staff IT as desired
  • Models being considered: General Dynamics/Tadpole Meteor, Naturetech Jasper 320, Accutech Gobi 7
  • Prices are not posted here since they were requested quotes. Let me know if you'd like to know what these are.
