ASR Aggregation Router 9000 Event
Besides all the hard work that we do, we also have a lot of fun in the field.
Let me share a recent ticket experience that we had!
The ASR Router weights about 100+ KG fully stocked, a heavy piece of amazing hardware! ASR 9000 Series to be precise.
We were 2 engineers and the assignment was to first move it from the entrance to the customer’s rack, and then install it. Easy, right?
We managed to lift 100+ KG onto a trolley and make our way through the DC to the correct area. Took some time but we got the job done.
To be able to move it into the rack, we got the brilliant idea to remove the blades. By that, we then cut the weight in half and managed to lift it into the rack! We also made sure that all diagrams received and the communications were spot on!
Then we made all interconnections from other racks and we could finally start the configuration!
So a typical instillation like this includes:
- Installing in rack
- Cleaning up
- Leaving site with happy customer
I believe this was one of the most fun tickets we have had so far even though rack related installations are something we do daily!
