Our new badminton center needs a LOT of networking for things like speakers, access to the building, and of course blazing fast internet speeds. But we also need to power all of this in the event of an outage, which is where EcoFlow comes in.

Throwing money at a problem is easy. I also found the crossover between a battery pack and computer networking is rather weird.

I'm a network engineer and I realize y'all are nerds but it continually impresses me how you guys get so much of my industry right without being specialized.  I know you probably have other people that are writing the script that have more knowledge than you and Jake, but it's still pretty nuts to me how much you get right.

 

...That being said I suspect those APs will be an issue for you.  I do wireless for warehouses a lot, and the way that APs decide how high to turn up the power is based on how strongly they hear their neighbors.  With the AP mounted at ceiling height, they will hear each other very loudly and turn down the power so they don't interfere, which will be a problem at floor level. 
The company I work for fixes this by putting them on pendants - essentially a long pole to bring them closer to the ground - and we use typically will use an AP that has external antennas so they can hear the clients better, because most handheld devices have small WIFI antennas and can only broadcast the signal so hard. 

I hope I'm wrong and it works out great for you, but if it doesn't maybe this will be a good reference to why.  
P.S. I hate wifi with all my being

Hey, Sound Engineer here that works doing systems integration for large venues.

Avoid the PoE Dante speakers. they never make sense from a cost perspective, and are pretty much always outperformed by cheaper 70/100v stuff.

 

stick with interleaved 70/100v stuff for the most part, use some nice boxed from d&b or Acoustic for the high value spaces (budget pending). Control it all with Qsys.

 

PoE speakers are pretty much a gimmick, and very rarely used in industry.

 

Feel free to ask questions 👍

I find it hilarious that with this huge cable it can do up to 4000w of charging. Any standard european power plug is rated for ~3800w.

Sorry, that I had to bring this up again 😂

Yeah cause batteries and networking gear never go hand in hand. Imagine you'd have batteries to keep networking gear running after a power outage. That'd be sooo stupid! Like who even does that?

 

🥲

Linus was uncomfortable with the height and yet was able to overcome it and go back up alone. 

Great lesson in action.

They didn't get into that much network detail really though. It was just basic surface stuff of switches, routers, and APs, most of which was just talking points on Unifi moreso than network engineering. I would have liked it if they talked about how they'd subnet the network, VLANs, network topology, Spanning Tree, VLSM, etc. I know they like Unifi but I think they should have looked at more solid enterprise solutions Cisco, Aruba, Meraki, Juniper, etc. Linus should look into getting an IT dept for his company to really help manage and maintain the infrastructure better though of course we wouldn't get fun content of them fixing all their janky builds and mistakes lol.  Fun video, can't wait to see how the center comes together.

Seeing Linus wear steel-toe boots was a hoot. Now he needs steel-toe sandals lol.

True - but I don't think networking is all that interesting to the average viewer.  Their high level overviews are usually on point and even if they over engineer most of their networking solutions to comical degrees, can't fault a nerd for wanting the best of the best when they can afford it.
