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.

haha, cats and IT gear. Somehow they are drawn to it...  

Kind of a big deal

Re: Before and After Pictures

Here is another before and after.  In this case, the customer said thay wanted to be able to "see" where the patched ports plugged into the switch, without having to riffle through the cabling.

Getting noticed

Re: Before and After Pictures

from what I understand about Data Centers is that they have a hot isle and a cold isle. It seems like not the best idea to put the MX and some MS behind other MSes. They are going to intake the hot air discharge from the switches in front of them. I'm sure in a climate controlled environment the equipment won't ever reach a temperature that it will matter but it's an inefficient rack design.

Some nice work!

 

I see a lot of these installs using what looks like slimline patch cables? Can anyone name a brand or provide a link to cabling they use that they would recommend to others?

 

Thanks

Re: Before and After Pictures

Found the last of the three cabs we did on that install 

 

It really shouldn't be. But tidying cabs is rather therapeutic I find!

Re: Before and After Pictures

We're seemingly on a roll here doing cabs at the moment so like a proud father I thought i'd throw up another

 

Still on the lookout for some slimline cat6a patch cabling if anyone knows of a good vendor?

Re: Before and After Pictures

@Nick I  buy my slimline cables from CDL - but I suspect they wont be in your bit of the world.  All the codes begin with PLS.  I mostly use yellow, and then begin with PLSY.

Re: Before and After Pictures

I love those slim cables!  They really help in cleaning up a rack.
