Without trying to be facetious, I don't think there is
anyone in the company who is "configuring" based on the parameters you
described. We certainly need someone. In the interim, I can
only guess that the real issue here is getting a few pieces of info such
1. Length of time of upload
2. Length of time to label card via printer (are you
using a self sticking label or old AV method)
3. Number of cards to do
4. Double the time you think it will take.
5. Decide how much time you actually have
6. Divide 5 into 4 and that will indicate number of
units required for time you have.
That's how I configured Alameda, but its all still just
theory. The idea of self sticking labels in the printer
is appealing, but do we have such a thing?
Let me know where you go with this.

Subject: Network Hub for
Downloading from GEMS to AVTS units
our current software GEMS 1.17.17, AVTS 4.1.6, and our TSText files with
audio; the only fast way of doing a download is via network. What would be the recommendation
for the size of Network Hub, (number of ports), to use. For instance, Johnson County
Kansas will have to download almost 900 AVTS units. In the state of Maryland, there
are two accounts that are just under 2000 AVTS units and the other over
2000 units. We need to
order the Network Hubs and cabling and get this installed and tested to
meet the RFP requirements.
