[liberationtech] Censorship hardware - BLUECOAT IN SYIA

About the photo: is there any idea where that photo was taken, and what date? Is it possible to get photos of the back of the rack?

To me the location for that kit looks strange. The surrounding look like an office, however that equipment would not be suitable for general office surroundings.

That is indeed an SG9000.

This is purely personal opinion and I could be mistaken but the equipment in the rack beside the 9000 has some physical features of some ZTE kit.

Based on searches ZTE have in the past hired for telecoms engineers and account managers for clients in Damascus.
