Lake Argyle – Sat and SSN

A quick install of Satellite Communications, using the Telsta iterra network and SSN (Silver Springs Networks) Access Points in remote WA. One of a few AP’s that have to be Sat connected due to there being no 3/4G. Nevertheless it worked as expected. These SSN AP’s operate on both 900 MHz and 2.4 GHz which increases the capacity and reliability of the meshed network, ultimately providing access and supporting Smart Meters, out bush.

UCS-E160D and CIMC

As part of a vWAAS deployment on a 3945-ISR-G2, my objective was to access the UCS-E server, initially the CIMC interface for the install of ESXi and then vWAAS, via the /29 address i’d allocated.

Here’s a much nicer look at that configuration.
