Today is officially the start of the Christmas Holiday shutdown here down under and one of the things I wanted to accomplish during this period is to revisit my home lab, shake off the dust and repurpose them to something more useful.
In this post I will provide an overview of my home lab to get started with the reorg. This will serve as an inventory of some sort as well. :-)

At the edge of the network, there is a Huawei B315s-607 LTE home gateway supplied by vividwireless. I was planning to use my Linksys E4200 (which I brought when we moved here from Singapore) as my primary wifi router but it doesn’t appear that the Huawei router has a bridge mode to offload the wifi function so I’ll be stuck with this setup for now.
Also, I am planning to deploy the OpenFaaS serverless framework on the RPi k8s cluster and turn it to something more useful. I am going to try to publish a post and share the experience.
That’s all there is right now regarding my home lab. Please feel free to comment below if you have any questions.
