    Are 96-port Patch Panels Too Dense??

    Do those poe injectors go pop often? If you don't want to invest in a PoE switch (not worth it for that many ports) a PoE midspan can be useful, especially if its managed to remotely cycle things.

    I know it is DOCSIS 3.0 but on the hardware side they are using 4/5 channels for downstream and only 2 upstream so presumably a symmetrical connection isn't actually possible in that configuration? Don't get me started on their traffic management, use your full speed for more than an hour and...

    Building a cluster computer?

    You're over thinking the problem as far as I can tell, a real cluster would be beowulf (architectures need to match but not precise hardware afaik); but you're only really needing to offset processing? Most 3d rendering software suites have a remote rendering feature which you can install on...

    Share internet bandwidth from HQ to branch?

    If there is compression (and uncompression) along the 10mbit line you could potentially see a performance increase, the 10mbit connection is probably not symmetrical however so you could see your upload filling up which will hamstring any downstream gains.

    Quiet 48-port switch?

    What level of management? The only truly quiet switches are fanless IMO and they only come in 24 port flavours afaik

    They aren't an 'ISP' ... my comment is basically saying there is no chance in them dealing with you ... if they did it would cost loads or you would have to offer them peering to somewhere they don't already have .. etc.
