I think it’s safe to say that in most data centers or server rooms, cable clutter is an annoying issue that’s hard to ignore. In recent years, more and more data centers and server rooms feature high density and large capacity, usually accompanied by a large number of copper cables or fiber optic patch cables to connect the entire network. If you want to ensure the performance of the entire network, then there is no doubt that links to patch cable cannot be wrong. Any incorrect cable management will directly lead to cable damage and network failure, resulting in data transmission errors, performance problems, and system downtime. Today, our topic is the cable management bar, a super important tool in rack cable management.
Rack Cable Management
What Is Cable Management Bar
Advantages of Cable Management Bar
- First, if we use the cable management bar to manage patch cables, we can save a lot of space. Because it uses less than 1U of space. Or if installed in front of or behind a rack, cable management bar does not take up any space. Therefore, we can save valuable space for installing other network devices.
- Secondly, using a cable management bar can reduce the strain of the cable. When users install large amounts of cables in the rack, cable stress will increase accordingly. Using the bars can relieve cable stress and avoid pulling cables when routing them from one side of a rack to the other. This plays an important role in the high-density cabling network.
- Third, the cable management bar can promote the bending radius of patch cables, thereby reducing or even avoiding risks such as slower data transmission rates or damaged patch cables.
