It’s probably been some time since your team first moved into your present office suite. Back then, everything was shiny and new, organized, and running smoothly. However, as time goes by and changes are made, things may not look as polished and perfect as they once did. Especially the IDF room. Data cables are everywhere. It looks like a team of octopuses have wrapped themselves around the patch panels. They should be organized and clearly labeled with little or no kinks and bends. If the IDF room resembles your teenager’s messy room… It’s time to give it a little love.
Many of these connections link to dead ends. It’s hard to find the fiber from CAT 6 cable. There doesn’t seem to be organization or understanding of design. Can you imagine the frustration any tech would feel walking into a closet with this much chaos? How can they do their job without fear of making things worse?
A project like this is too big to handle for the internal IT team during normal everyday operations. You’ll need a professional Structured Cabling installation group to take on a project like this.
Below is the SAME closet that got just a little attention. In just a day or so, the closet became a dream IT environment. Functionality in speed and performance was increased by 50%. Staff no longer felt defeated, and the investment paid for itself quickly. This new closet now represents the company’s core values: Clear Vision, Integrity, and Performance.
So, as you come back to the office this holiday season, take a look at your IT IDF room. What state is it in? Could your closet use a clean-up in Q1 2022
