    being picky as I am I'd say you shouldn't use cable ties in case you damage the cable from over tightening or removing the cable tie. I use THESE now and they are great. I think the PatchSee light up leads are a good idea but a bit more pricey than a standard wire!

    I'd recommend RapidNet for fast and tidy installs. We use it in the patch panels between our servers/switches. It's easy to install and very tidy.

    Very neat; but a mare if you need to change something, or fix it.

    I'm convinced there are two types of install, the neat, and the workable, with very little in between.

    In my last job the NM always seemed to use 5m cables when .5m would have been more than long enough. You would have to wade through a multi-coloured "spaghetti screen" to get to the hubs (yes, I mean hubs!) and the telephone patching panels.

    If you draw the Venn diagram, the (very small) bit where neat and workable overlap is what I was referring to, everything outside both the circles could be what you found; neither neat, nor workable!

    Those original pictures are amazing... Fantasy Cabling!

    I know, I'm sad... but no worse than the rest of you.

    It doesn't matter how tidy I leave it, the resident ghost seems to do macrame with my cabling

Not saying that all those are examples of best practice, in some the terminated cables appear to be supported by nothing more than being tightly bound together with cable ties, and then bound again to the racks with cable ties. not sure about that one. One picture shows the use of rear brackets which are imo a better example of supporting the cable that terminates into the rear of the patch panel. Also, in one picture you see the use of the older style telco vertical cable sections, vertical sections with 'fingers' might be a better method of routing and supporting cables to be terminated. otherwise much of the support comes from cable just being tightly bundled together, rather than individual support of cables.

    But i know there are data center install professionals who prefer not to install cable mgmt arms at all for things like servers....

    For actual patching, having things like vertical cabling sections and the horizontal cable managers [like the panduit one in the example of the 'blue' patch cables] for the front of the rack, make a big difference. I quite like the look of that patchsee product aswell, although in small installations you can certainly manage without, the product could be useful from an accuracy and minimal disruption point of view when undertaking any add, move or change.

    it's definitely worth putting a lot of thought into product purchases if ever people intend to reinstall or start afresh.
