It's an MR820TR. It's been in continuous service with me personally for over
20 years, and is of course even older than that. The thing just doesn't die.
I also have one of the slightly later variant that displays "network load" as
a spare, but it has never needed to be put in service.

There's also a whole mess of the 210T transceivers here that breed furiously
in drawers like hamsters.

On the whole I like(d) Allied Telesyn gear.
