Around 2000 the lab I worked in Middletown started rethinking our
layout. We had some 40+ rows of racks of various test beds (Managed
Network Services). Seems we didn't have the budget to properly replace
the aging cable (it's was only about 10 years old ???). Anyway we
started adding 37xx switches to each row and each row would have a few
37xx. Eventually we built a nice cross switched network layout for our
test equipment (Ixia, Smartbits and a bunch of BBB Linux servers). It
wasn't hard to have everything we needed in each test bed. I was
surplused when VM just started. That would have been fun and the new
SDN/SVN/NVF take that to an entirely new level. I really miss playing
in the labs.

PS: BBB = Boring Beige Box
