Keeping Your Cables Organized

Keeping Your Cables Organized

Understanding cable management is essential to any network installation, no matter how big or small the project is. In this process, there are some necessary tools to make the organization of your cables simple and problem-free.

Essentially, there are two ways of going about managing your category cable. One is to plug your solid conductor category cable directly from the wall into an ethernet switch, which is a device used to network multiple computers together. However, more often times than not, this configuration can make you server room look messy and clunky.

Patch Panels

There is a number one solution to this problem- Known as a patch panel. Patch panels make networking easy. With numbered ports, one can easily trace their way back to each wall plate where devices plug into. Patch panels also help to avoid tangled messes in the server room and work to protect against damaging solid ethernet cables.

Since it is not necessary to plug directly into switches, patch cords can be plugged into the patch panel and into your devices. In fact, the stranded cable in patch cables is far more flexible and better suited for shorter distance runs.

Furthermore, patch cords can also withstand the rearrangement and re-configuring of expansion, unlike solid cables that are usually installed once and left alone. Organize your project with our collection of patch panels today!

Server Racks

Now that you’ve got the patch panels figured out, you can finish your assembly with a Primus Cable server rack, such as the PP6-317/2U Network Rack- Swing-Out Wall Mount Bracket. With this hinged-type network rack, you can mount your patch panels directly to a wall, saving time, space and money installing a big cabinet in your server room.
