Improvement of Ethernet reliability

The installation of an Ethernet repeater at the telescope improved the reliability of the computer network. In the past the network sometimes went down due to connector problems, cable problems, observers disconnecting devices...etc.

The repeater divides the Ethernet into several subnets (computer, control room, receivers, lab, backup). The failure of one subnet does not affect the other branches.
