One -To - One Switch Patching

One of the mysteries I have always wondered about was why did Ethernet switch manufactures label their 48 ports and larger switches vertically and patch panel manufactures label their ports horizontally? When trying to match up cabling the patch panels to the switch numerically it was kind of challenging to arrange the patch cords neatly. Usually all the excess is shoved into a vertical or horizontal wire manager in order to keep the install from looking like a rats nest. Panduit recently came out with a patch panel kit that kind of fixed this problem and makes for a much neater and simpler install. The kit even comes with special small diameter 8 inch patch cords for tight space considerations.  Click here for the product bulletin: Have you seen some other ideas that are unique?
