    Not on that scale but I've had the "pleasure" of rewiring two wiring closet at SMBs that had switch racks that looked like that. Have some people never heard of cable mgmt.?

    This is caused by bad execs and CTOs that want things done "now" instead of done right. Of course the techies have their own hand in this, but I always blame management.

    This follows on from that 2 minute fixer thread really. You have to get it right the minute something enters the rack. Once equipment gets plugged in and turned on then its too late to fix it. Do you want to be the person that tells management that you're going to have a couple of hours downtime whilst you recable and move things around...

    I've been in a lot of different server rooms before but have NEVER seen anything like this before!! Whoever is responsible for this should be tried and convicted and given 25 to life in prison for this!! icon_lol.gif

    haha, thats what our comms room looks like except its along a single wall and not running in tandem with other cabs. Seriously, if someone has to repatch something down there - its that bad that most ppl just leave the previous cable and add a new one into the current mesh of cables haha.

    I really hate overhead cabling ducts. They look bloody awful. What's wrong with putting those cable trays under the floor where they should be ?

    As for that guy sitting at a desk around all those cabs, I hope he one day sues for tinitus.

    Good thing about cat 6, it isn't that bendy. Electrical wiring is more flexible. That rigidness will necesitate good wiring practises hopefully.

    I hate cable ties, Imagine having to physically trace a cable [you should not need to do that because every thing is labeled], or replace a or move a cable or 2..

    you will have to cut all those cable ties make a cable the exact length between the two ports and re-do the cable ties..

    I ordered a massive roll of velcro when I redid some of the cabling at work.

    It's often more efficient from an air-con/cooling POV. Many cooling models for DC's has the cold air originating from under the floor and being drawn up through the racks or grids in the floor. The problem you get with shoving cables under the floor, is that if you dont leave a sufficient air space between the 'real floor' and the one the racks sit on is that the bundles of cables/trayworks can stuff up the air flow/pressure and ruin the cooling model completely.

    Not quite the same scale as mine but it is a jungle. Whoever originally wired never realized what the cable management compartments were for
