Rhodes' Network Layout
The map below provides a high-level overview of network distribution at Rhodes, showing the various sectors that make up the network, and the location of the distribution routers for those sectors.
As a general design rule, network problems at Rhodes should be isolated to one of the sectors below; it is unusual for problems to span more than one sector. In addition, the well defined boundaries of these sectors make it easy for people to determine the impact of planned work (be it IT or electrical).

Distribution routers flagged with a star are connected to standby generators. All other distribution routers have battery backup lasting about two hours.
