Today we planned and installed a point to point link. It is only a short one, but from the planning stage, we wanted stability over speed, so only went with 40Mhz channel width, which would reduce throughput from 600Mbps+ down to 300Mbps. This speed would be ample for the required application.
Upon installation, we hit the expected speeds with only minor tweaks. A consistent 300Mbps capacity up/down over the link.
So this week we have been working on deploying more meeting rooms in One Canada Square, Canary Wharf, London UK, for a client. This is the first site where we have agreed to set static IP’s on the Intel NUC’s and the Yealink CP960’s.
To speed up the deployment I put together a short Powershell script to set a few bits out of the box.
All the NUC’s come to us with English US defaults for the region, local, etc. We are in the UK so we want en-GB so we use:
And while we are there we may aswell set the time correctly:
set-date -date “25/10/2019 14:53”
This has reduced the deployment time of each NUC, as the script saves multiple clicks. Next week I will do the last 2 steps which are activation of Windows 10 and pushing out an MSI installer for the Yealink Zoom rooms plugin.
