For us, for networking devices, we do a three letter code for building name,
then room number, then device type, then chassis number, separated by
IE: lib-169-a-1 - is in the library, room 169, it's an access chassis (d =
l3 distribution, p = policy enforcement, w = wireless distribution, etc.),
and it's switch 1 in the that IDR. We can dispatch FE&P for power quickly,
or find the closet in the event of a failure for those that don't work in
the closets on a daily basis.
