RE: Operations: where are you going to sit?
Loss of signal in a data center is a good point. At a previous organization I was slaved to, we brought this up with Nextel sales people. After about a week or so they purposed a small in-line receiver for the various data centers, and a thin Kate Moss looking yagi for each roof. Also, I can't stress the importance of a basic two way mobile system. We use the Nextel i1000+ phones for our engineering staff and NOC. The internet access features on these bad boys has been VERY handy. The ability for a NOC member to check MRTG/Openview type information and IMAP/etc. email has been beneficial. Jade Jade E.
