Ethernet cable management advice - Network Cables
In an article for Processor, Robyn Weisman discusses the issue with a number of experts from the industry and finds that it is best to "isolate and consolidate" sources of cables.
Furthermore, it is suggested by product specialist Christina Hansen that ethernet cables should be labelled and colour-coded in order to easily identify where they lead to and for what function.
Server room managers are also reminded that poor organisation and distribution of cables can lead to problems with heating and access to equipment.
Nick Schmidt, senior manager of IT infrastructure at CDW, tells the news provider: "Mismanagement of cables can lead to significant lost revenue from unnecessary downtime.
"Cable management is the foundation for space maximisation, overall performance, safety, and cooling efficiency."
A number of server racks are available that can help with cable management by providing channels in which to pass them through.
