Re: Good Stuff [was] Re: shameful-cabling gallery of infamy - does anybody know where it went?
Most good cabling jobs require one thing- dedication.Does anyone know if any good resources on best-practices at this sort of thing? I'm pretty sure that others must've already figured out the trickier stuff that I've thought about.
If you are willing to put in the time and effort, you can do a good cabling job the first time. Think about how the cables will get used, what might change in the future, and then lay them out so as to minimize problems when things need to be moved or upgraded.
Then again, sometimes it requires a whole lot more dedication. In our case the racks we inherited were installed wrong (no space between them for vertical cable management). Getting our cabling organized meant welding our own cable management brackets that we could bolt onto the front of the racks.
I'll post some pictures when I get a chance.
