Coordinator Sebastian
Location everywhere
Phone DECT:6664

The task of the cable team is to find the best route for network cables considering the following options:

  • shortest path
  • safest path
  • least amount of effort :)

while ofcourse still following the network plan :)

This can involve: tree climbing, digging, finding ways to pull fibre through and over existing constructions. While ofcourse keeping the fibre intact :)

So if you want help out, add your name here. and if you arrive early, the better :) (laying cables when the camp has already started is a bit late :)

If you want to join when you're on site. please come look for Sebastian or call 6664, he'll there from the evening of 02-08-07.

[edit] Tasks

[edit] Buildup

The cabling tasks can be roughly divided in four parts:

  • The uplink from Berlin to the campsite. A sponsor has been found for this
  • this will largely be taken care of, except for a ' last mile' (which is less then a mile :)
  • Big links between the NOC and a few distribution points. This will be a pretty sturdy outdoor fiber with several strands that still needs to be cut to length and have SC/PC connectors attached
  • Links from these sites to various Datenklos out in the fields. This may be more vulnerable fiber but also copper, depending on the situation
  • Links from the edge switches to visitors' tents. Copper as well, so bring a crimptool!
  • Participants will take care of this temselves.

[edit] Teardown

Basically the previous, only in reverse order. Roll all the fiber neatly back on the rolls it came from, put the caps back on the connectors.
