    $1,100,000 Cisco VoIP/Switch Upgrade

I've used some Avaya IP phones and they were disgusting. The handset feels like a piece of plastic crap and the buttons feel like...

    It's a Cisco CSS11000 SCA, basically acts as a front-end for an HTTP server farm. All the servers can be running HTTP without SSL, this box emulates each server and encrypts the data and makes it HTTPS.

    I'm in the process of moving off of a single-core LAN/WAN topology to a seperate core for the WAN and one for the LAN. Since I consider the PtP microwave link to be part of the WAN group, it will be connected to the 3750G switches.

    It's a Cisco ONS15454 MSTP. Long Island Fiber Exchange is delivering their data services to me via Verizon. Verizon installed that box and L.I.F.E. have an Alcatel-Lucent switch connected it to it with 2x GiGE SMF connections. I don't know much more than that, it's not COAM.

    Different locations. The C5500 is used by a network transport company for inter-floor connectivity. They drop one of these off in pretty much every suite in the building, allowing you to cross-connect suite-to-suite or floor-to-floor.
