Another long day doing another Cisco Meraki deployment.
Before hand with 10 network devices.
Replaced with 5 new Meraki devices.
Nice job @PhilipDAth, did the colour coded cabling mean anything or did they just like having a rainbow coloured cabinet?
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.
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.
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.
24 port patch panel
48 port switch
48 port patch panel
This is the cleanest solution and I hate doing it any other way 😃
