When it comes to food, we all love a big plate of spaghetti, but when it comes to IT, everybody hates when network or data center cabling becomes so tangled that it looks like spaghetti. Preventing your network from being confused with spaghetti takes careful planning and maintenance. Spaghetti cabling is one of the major problems that we have solved for many businesses and organizations across Saudi Arabia. Here are the top reasons why every IT administrator should avoid the cable spaghetti problem:
Spaghetti cabling is an accident waiting to happen, whether it’s from power generator parts or your datacenter server cabinets. The sudden pull of a plug is not just a danger to your assets and cable racks; it could potentially cause serious damage to your valuable IT assets, which results in costly downtime. Tripping over cables can result in significant harm that could have easily been prevented by cable or wire concealers. Your first move to avoid cable spaghetti should be to use the correct length of cable, which will make it more secure and easier to manage.
The fact that your congested cables cannot be easily traced will dramatically complicate and slow down the upgrade, movement and troubleshooting process of any of your datacentre components. Consider the time you would waste to untangle cables and find the ones you need. Do you have those hours, even days, to spare? Working efficiently is your goal, but you’re just wasting time and money if you can’t easily access your technologies because of cable issues. Cable ties, for example, are a viable solution as they can be used for any application where you’re structuring a cable network. They organize cables by bundling and fastening them together.
When cables are left unsecured and unsupported, they can be easily damaged. Network cables have delicate components, and when left hanging on the floor or stretched too far, they are going to get damaged and end up costing you. When this happens, you’re looking at significant downtime. Employees are unable to work and the person who needs to track down the broken cables is caught up in one big tangle, and that’s before you even get to the costs of repairing or replacing those cables. A good quality network rack and cable management system can prevent a lot of potential cabling problems.
