Consider repositioning equipment to accommodate for better cable organization . The worst network closets get that way because the switches are too far from the patch panels , requiring long , messy cables . Moving this equipment will allow you to have shorter cables and make space for a cable organizer :
CLUTTERED ORGANIZATION
IDEAL ORGANIZATION

4Determine the ideal cable lengths and colors needed and keep them in stock . If you rearrange your equipment

the right way , the average cable lengths you will need will be two to three feet . Store enough of the appropriate color and size cables to make your job easier along the way , and then keep them in stock to ensure that once you organize , it stays organized . To be precise in your cable measurements , you can look at your server rack and measure how many U ’ s there are between your patch panels and your switches . For every four U ’ s , you ’ ll need approximately two feet of cable using a cable management system such as Neat Patch .
