    Cabling an HP Procurve 5412zl tidily?

    I'm thinking about the future here, and at some point we may well buy an HP 5412zl with 11 24port modules and 1 10Gbit module.

    The problem there is that you end up with 264 cat5 cables going into one switch, with no cable tidies horizontally to tidy it up.

    The usual way I'd do it with 1U switches is

    Patch panel
    Cable tidy
    patch panel
    cable tidy
    etc

    then
    cable tidy
    switch
    cable tidy
    switch

    etc

    Meaning you can keep all the cables tidy without hassle.

    So, if anyone has a 5412zl, how do you cable it?

    You need to have some cable managent that is attached to the side rails of the rack really.

    I've got some pictures of my rack with a couple of 4108GL's in it I can dig out to show you.

    I've got one of those as my core switch, but currently not using that many ports (just servers and fibre uplinks at the moment).

    You need cable management at the side though... cunning pokey-through cable management (I believe that's the technical term for it) - and I also use some velcro wrappy things to keep the cables in nice tidy bundles.

    I hope that makes sense. I've not had any coffee yet so I'm not really 'alive' yet.
