Growth in an IT environment is certain, planning ahead for addition cabinets, servers, storage and networking components and the Cable Management Solution supporting the growth infrastructure is essential. It is easier to integrate racks and components that have already been planned for, rather than reactional which normally results in a poor performing networking and downtime
New trends and technologies are being developed every day; high density servers, converged infrastructure IoT are examples of this which all result in higher levels or performance and data. So it is imperative that at design stage, future proofing the network and infrastructure is considered.
Development of higher speed technology has resulted in the development of greater diameter cabling, resulting in larger cabling being deployed within cabling system than previously used – future proofing ensures industry trends are anticipated.
It is complicating adding or removing cables connected directly or indirectly to the network solution, with both Unistruts Cable Management solution and a designed structured cabling it reduce deployment risk on future hardware as it offers easier access and management to the networking components.
Unistruts Cable Management Solutions is designed with future proofing in mind:-
- Improved maintenance and serviceability
- Ensure the durability of the infrastructure
- Reduce the chance of human error when changes are required
- Improve labour time and costs from the initial install to upgrading the network
- Reduce installation and maintenance downtime, both scheduled and unscheduled
To support the growth of the infrastructure, downtime is inevitable but good Cable Management will help reduce downtime for networking upgrades or change-outs, it will also reduce the risk of human error when unplugging networked devices as it is simpler to identity the required cables to move.
DP Building Systems and Unistrut design and build for stability and future infrastructure ensuring a scalable infrastructure but optimise space as growth and increased demand will happen.
Unistrut Cable Management Solutions provide the ability to adapt and scale to changes and developments within the IT infrastructure while minimizing downtime and cost impact.
