Hi Folks,

More so to make support easier we have standardized on the following in 
support of InfoAge:

  * Core Switch:  Cisco 4900M with CISCO X2-10GB-LR optics
  * Edge Switches: CISCO WS-C3750E-48PD-SF
    (c3750e-universalk9-mz.152-3.E1 firmware) and CISCO X2-10GB-LR optics
  * IP phones:  Poly VVX410 and VVX300 sets.  The older Cisco phones
    such as the 7900 series only  support SCCP, not SIP.
  * Access Points: Ubiquiti Networks UniFi UAP-AC-PRO

Lastly, Neil is dead on re the non-working kit.  We can only take so 
much per month as e-waste and stay off the radar....
