Proper Cable Management: The Foundation of Any Functioning Data Center
Earlier this month, DSI’s Business Administrator, Jon McSweeny, published a thought leadership piece for Facility Executive discussing the importance of proper Data Center cable management.
In the piece, Jon discusses how cables are the foundation of every Data Center and how important it is for a Data Center’s operational integrity. Additionally, proper cable management helps avoid needless headaches that chew up valuable time and resources for management.
Throughout the piece, Jon highlights a number of tips that Data Center managers can implement to ensure an efficient cable management set up. Jon also points readers to a number of best practices such as ANSI/TIA-942-B-2017, the Telecommunications Infrastructure Standard for Data Centers and BICSI 002-2019 Data Center Design Implementation & Best Practices.
Whether the cables in question are for power or data, failure to properly manage this critical part of Data Center infrastructure can cause serious issues, from increased operating costs to more expensive outages.
Cable management cannot be an afterthought!
