Here are some of my favorite shots from the CMTS lab yesterday. (Click thumbnails for a larger view) In order, there’s a photo of fiber nodes, racks upon racks of cable modems, a cable modem close-up, a mess of wires (far worse than my own home entertainment system…) and a BSR 64000 (CMTS) with one 2×8 card halfway removed. See the bracelet attached to the hand in the last shot? Everyone touching one of the BSRs has to wear one to avoid static electricity build-up.
