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.
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?
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!
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?
Before: 6 old unstacked Netgear switches:
