I’ll guide you through the maze of shielded and unshielded cables, the difference between solid and stranded conductors, and the nuances of cable management that can significantly impact the performance and longevity of your networking equipment. Fresh from the NECA BICSI Summit in Denver, Colorado, I’m fired up to share my experiences and the wealth of knowledge I gained, including some fascinating insights on disruption, cybersecurity, and project management.
Imagine the power of understanding the intricate details of cable management. I’ll demystify the different types of wire managers and discuss the emerging trend of installing patch cords without horizontal wire managers. We’ll even delve into the capabilities of category six and higher-rated cables and the scenarios where they are your best bet.
Ready to boost your understanding of cabling and networking? We’ll wrap up the episode by exploring the best practices for testing and certifying cables, the essential requirements for a solid testing plan, and the importance of a robust documentation process. Plus, I’m throwing open an invitation to join me on the show for discussions on topics like bonding and grounding, server room thermal scanning, and office locator kits.
