STRUCTURED CABLING SOLUTIONS
You're ready to take your technology applications to the next level. But the speeds required will tax the capabilities of your cabling infrastructure. Are you finding cable management issues in your data center? Do you have trouble tracing cables from one piece of equipment to another? Do you have unused fiber cables running underfloor and/or overhead that are congesting pathways, blocking airflow and making a huge mess? Most of these issues are due to utilizing a point-to-point cabling infrastructure instead of an organized, structured cabling infrastructure. For many years data centers were cabled using the point-to-point system. A point-to-point infrastructure is when standard duplex fiber jumpers are used to directly connect equipment. This almost always leads to a cabling system that is very difficult to manage. Most data centers were built before there were any standards or guidance on this topic so many of today’s infrastructure professionals have inherited the issues that come with point-to-point cabling.
