    Welcome to the world of cabinet switching. We've already swapped 1 cabinet and are swapping 3 more this summer for these giant switches. But then, it is worth it!

    Prism make nice cabs. Give www.wadsworth.co.uk a go as they're a Prism reseller. I've just used them for a load of gear and am happy.

    You can buy direct from Prism but you need a credit card for their website. Wadsworth will set you up an account so you can use purchase orders.

    ...also if you're ordering a big'un, make sure it's flat pack. I won't make that mistake again. 8O

    I use www.netbituk.co.uk - cabinets are fairly cheap and decent quality.

    I used Comms Express for the first time this year for 2 server cabs.

    Very quick delivery and reasonable prices.

    Leon - have you, or anyone else, put any HP 2626/2650s in Prisms? If so, what is the least depth you can get away with?

    Thanks

    Re: HP 2650

    Funny you should ask ;-).

    My Procurves should be here within the hour, flooding down south delayed 'em. When they arrive, I'll try one and post. From the measurements given, they should fit fine. I ordered the 600 series 6U wall boxes. Can't fault the build quality, and they have adjustable inner struts which can be moved forward for extra room.

    *crosses fingers*

    Btw it was Prism who recommended Wadsworth to me.

    Re: HP 2650

    I have my 2848s in the Prism 9U Two Section Wall Mounted Cabinet PI Range 600mm Wide x 550mm Deep. Its still a really tight fit and the rails have to be adjusted. I have to swing the cabinet open to plug in the serial cable if I need to use it! (At least I don't have to take the switch out though). Most of the HP range are similar depth.

    Re: HP 2650

    Right the 2626s fit fine (and the 2650s are the same dimensions). There's not a tremendous amount of room once installed. With the rail in it's default position (if there is such a thing) there's:

    2.5cm-ish gap at the rear.
    6.0cm-ish gap at the front.

    Not sure if I'll need to adjust these yet as the switches come with right-angled kettle leads, so the profile at the rear can remain shorter. One thing worth noting is the kettle leads here have come with euro plugs.

    EDIT:
    Woo! Out with the old crappy infrastructure!
