Home Network

My home network is a BEAST, with a setup that wouldn’t be out of place in a corporate environment it was one of my favourite home improvement projects to date.

The core of my network is built into the top of an airing cupboard which was left empty following a boiler upgrade.

A custom built rack houses some neat bits of Unifi kit, along with NVR’s and a patch panel and some other bits. To the left you’ll find a HP microserver, on top of that a 4G router, and behind, a UPS.

There is an air intake on the right side behind the rack which flows into flat ducting at the front left of the rack – temps are low, always about 20’c!

Don’t worry I will be re-cabling to make things neater, it’s just a struggle finding the time at the moment!
