- If they're permanently running from, say, switch racks to patch panels in the same room with a fixed number of ports per U, I could sort of accept this. Perhaps a big stack of VOIP switches that are never touched? Rare circumstance.
Zip ties are evil. Not only do you have to try and cut them off without nicking the cables, slicing your fingers, or dropping bits on the floor, but you can't turn around and re-use them after getting at the one cable you needed. You can't loosen them if you need to slide stuff around, either. Velcro solves all of these problems.
I've also read that at least theoretically, constricting parallel cables hard enough can cause cross-talk.Jan 24, 2016
- often, in datacentres, this layout is fine. Because you don't need to change the cables, ever. You might have to pull out a box but then you unclick the cables, slide the box out from the other side and then slide the new one in. So the cables, once in place, are pretty much fixed for life.
You also don't really get cross talk on shielded, twisted pairs.Jan 24, 2016
- That makes sense; thanks.
My school has two server racks, two network racks, and one misc shelf-type rack in the server room. I bet most of the readers here, like me, are from smaller enterprises that tend to rearrange often.Jan 24, 2016
Nice. Don't you know you should have each one of them committed to memory?! :~Jan 25, 2016
