Proper Cabling
There is nothing quite like walking into a new office and seeing a giant mess of different colored, different styled, and different length cables all over. It’s a chaotic scene takes makes you pause and go, “oh my goodness.” There are so many things you can do to ensure proper cabling happens, one of the better options is to use a rack for your servers, panels, and switches, that way all of the cables will come in and out of one hole. The other major suggestion is to use cable ties to bind all of them into one neat and tidy bundle. While you are reorganizing your cable nightmare, take some time to label where cables go. Labelling a cable was, Switch, Application Server, or even FrontDesk-PC will make life much easier in the future. The sky is the limit when it comes to organizing cables, but if you do not, it makes life so much harder later on.
