Not only is a neat, organized server rack aesthetically pleasing, but it allows for quick access to network hardware and easy troubleshooting operation. Along with proper cable management, a well-organized equipment rack allows for maximum airflow to the organization’s mission-critical network and server hardware. Although cable management may seem like a hassle, hiring the team of professionals at Layer One Technologies can make it simple and stress-free. Layer One Technologies provides services in Charlotte, NC and the entire Southeast.
Benefits of Hiring Professionals
Imagine you had to show your network server racks to your company’s president or to any of your top customers. What impression would it make? Would it reveal that your IT Personnel are organized with an attention to detail and forethought for avoiding premature failure of important equipment? Would it show that your IT Personnel planned for troubleshooting that goes beyond just verifying if it’s plugged in? Or would it reveal the overuse of temporary fixes such as: “This will do for now,” “We’ll fix this later,” or “This 25 ft patch cord is all I could find”?
With networks and servers being important to ensuring business can be conducted, professionals who understand the proper installation and management of server racks is a necessary expense. Hiring experts in the field of network server racks will show company presidents, higher-ups, and customers that you plan for the future.
Customer-Focused Rack Clean Up Process
Layer One Technologies can help bring chaos into order. We’ve been helping customers with server rack cable management for over ten years. Our rack systems are works of art, and thorough management is necessary to maintain the integrity of the equipment.
The clean-up process begins with a brief assessment of our customers’ goals. With those in mind, we then discuss port-specific patching requirements (VLANs, etc.), color coding options, labeling requirements, standard patch cords vs. premium 28AWG “thin” cords, scheduling requirements, and equipment prioritization.
After we have an understanding of our customers’ specific requirements, an implementation plan is created and our skilled technicians begin work with the customers’ future server rack cable management needs in mind. Our trusted technicians move network hardware and add new wire management for our customers. In addition, they take on the complicated task of installing the correct length of patch cords from equipment to patch panels. Once this is completed, the area around the server rack is cleaned of any debris created during the installation process and a surplus of patch cords of various lengths are supplied so additions and changes are easily accomplished post-cutover.
By beginning the process properly, we aim to make any future network rack management steps easy and stress-free. Our customers’ ability to continue business-as-usual is our number one priority.
