New York Day 2

Started the day off at 32 AofA this morning. The observatory rack has power to it, but the electricians ran out of cable for the T640 rack. We did a little work and headed back over to 111 8th Ave to tie up some loose ends. We noticed yesterday that our multifunction panel was mounted in the wrong rack, so we moved it over. That required finding an 8-foot ladder in Manhattan. Then, once you get a ladder, you have to go in the loading dock, which requires some amount of clearance or social engineering of the dock manager. Lots of fun!

The rest of the day was spent back at 32AofA mounting our equipment and getting the power as done as we could get it without house power.

We're having a bit of trouble locating one side of the Level3 metro fiber in the 32AofA FMMR. Level is going to send a tech out in the morning. After that, we can work on getting the Infinera ring up.

Here are some photos.
