Re: Before and After Pictures

Nice job @PhilipDAth, did the colour coded cabling mean anything or did they just like having a rainbow coloured cabinet?

Re: Before and After Pictures

The colours meant nothing.  Just different people patching at different times with whatever was lying around.

I think this is where it usually goes wrong untill someone takes the time to clean up.

Re: Before and After Pictures

I used coloured cables for different networks i.e. Security, VOIP, Wireless, printers, servers etc.

 

We have a strict policy use the right colour cable and if we dont have one in the right size use a beige cable it and label the cable until the right size cables arrives.

Re: Before and After Pictures

First two pictures are some work I did at a family members apartment, to clean up a terrible pre-installation. Ethernet cables ran through the apartment which was awesome, they just never bothered to terminate them lol. The after photo gives you the general final product of what I ended up with.

As for the office, I don't have a before photo, so you'll have to just image a big cable nest of chaos. This photo here is how I standardize things at work for all the IDF locations.

This is the cleanest solution and I hate doing it any other way  😃

Thanks guys  ^_^


I actually have a better before and after photo below.

 

 

Here is the before.

Here is the after. It's a little hard to install, but it really helps with the cable management and dust collection.
