I have never seen a real college campus served by a Cisco 3945.

I have seen plenty of branch offices and banks with using Cisco 3800 series devices, the 3945 predecessors.

Whether or not the device was overpaid for is a different question - I wouldn't be surprised if they used some 8A competition limiting factors that jacked up prices, or, if it included the actual installation and smartnet maintenance costs.

Comment Transfer it to NOAA? (Score 1) 71

Why not transfer it to NOAA's Satellite Service (NESDIS)?

NOAA's Office of Satellite and Product Operations ( ) in NESDIS is fully capable and staffed for performing 24/7 satellite operations of production systems, or older NASA research satellites. Unlike a private initiative, OSPO is already paid for by the american people, and makes the data available to everyone.
