ULB "doesn't like it" if we start interfering with classes (in fact, they get
very upset) so there is a limit to what we can do in the morning.  In previous
years, we've mainly moved equipment in, and laid down the wired network trunks
running along the main corridors.  We can't get into the lecture rooms until
classes are over.  And we can't block any corridors in a way that interferes
with student traffic between classes.

Unfortunately, there is not much we can do about these constraints.  We do
have a schedule of the classes, so we can start setting up in the rooms as
soon as they are empty.

Do not underestimate the time it takes to move equipment into the building.
You may not be able to park in front of the building and have to ferry stuff
from the parking lot above.

Last year we had a gigabit uplink.  I haven't seen the paperwork from Belnet
yet, but 50Mbit should not be a problem.  I will prod the people who know
exactly what we get and report.
