I'm putting together a equipment rack at work and would like some input on the equipment that I've selected to buy. We have a few guys that we need to train in the direction of the CCNP.2 - 2950G-24-EI 1 - 3550-24-SMI or 3560-24PS-S 3 - 2801 router 2 - 2811 router 2 - 803 ISDN router
1 - Dell Poweredge 18501 - Dell 22U Rack 1 - Rackmount keyboard and monitor 1 - APC Smart-UPS 1500VA USB & Serial RM 2U 100V
1 - Adtran ATLAS 550 Base Unit1 - Adtran ATLAS 550 Quad BRI Module
Has anyone had experience with the Atlas 550. It seems to be a good choice in my mind, buy I would like opinions of some of you that have had hands on experience with this.
I also have 3 - 2501 routers on hand that are currently not in use, as well as 4 - 2924XLs. Are these units worth putting into a rack as well and letting the guys do some labs on?
Is all of this overkill, or ...the more the better?
