Don’t Forget Cable Management

Unless all of your equipment is wireless, your workstation likely has a lot of cables to reckon with; over time and with frequent use, those cat 5e or cat 6 cables can get tangled, disorganized and just plain frustrating.

Is your desk home to a wild tangle of cables? If you’re nodding your head, you aren’t alone; cases of disorganized cables manifest themselves in every office, not just yours. And just like any other office, disorganization can impact the way your business runs, from office moves to simple, day-to-day tasks.

Proper cable management isn’t just a pipe dream; it just takes a little effort and the right cable management equipment. Whether you’re tackling the setup in your cubicle or making sure all of the cables in your server room are squared away, taking a little time to check the connections and organize the cables neatly can go a long way toward preventing headaches later. Using cable managers for your network patch cords, cable ties or velcro wraps not only will keep your cable organized but help identify your equipment wiring when it is time to service or upgrade your system preventing unnecessary outages.
