We Must Be Flexible To Manage The Inline Closure


With more and more applications of the Internet, the amount of data that needs to be processed is increasing, and the equipment required by the computer room is also increasing. However, the area of the equipment room is fixed. With the continuous increase of cables, many network administrators are faced with dense inline closures and limited space in the equipment room. How can the machine room be neat and the inline closure be well-organized?

The original room wiring used traditional inline closures. It was difficult to see where to start and replace the traditional distribution frames. The traditional distribution frame has many shortcomings, it is inconvenient to maintain, and it will bring security risks. Here are some points:

Not intuitive. Most of the traditional patch panels are paper, and the quality of the paper is uneven. Labels are handwritten and organic; colored, black and white; need to open the cabinet close to see clearly. If the time is long, due to the environmental reasons of the engine room, such as artificial wear, air humidity and other factors will make the label become more difficult to identify, causing inconvenience to managers.

Inconvenient maintenance. All the patch panel ports need to be tagged and the workload is high. Second, in the maintenance, it is inconvenient to find and change. If you want to jump, first check the file, find the port to jump, that is, a row, a column on the corresponding cabinet. Also, label stickers are easy to drop, dirty, and old, leading to inconvenient search and wasting a lot of time and manpower.

More security risks. The cables are complex and lack of planning, which can easily block the hot and cold channels and seriously affect the cooling and cooling of the equipment room. There is no safe and reliable implementation of cabling wiring, increasing the possibility of faults and downtime.
