Before and after images of a network cabinet after it has been stripped down and tidied up

Andy’s IT Cabinet Makeover #48

Here we have another successful cabinet make-over by our man, Mr. Aldridge.

We start with the fit-to-burst, unmanageable wall-cabinet that is a complete business liability. After several hours of hard toil (out of business hours, of course), the cabinet is transformed into a beautiful, organised communications rack that is simple for any technician to look after. In this example, the cabinet was too small to fit all of the equipment and a second one was installed beneath it.

Nice job, Andy.

Maintaining a network cabinet in a neat and serviceable condition is paramount. It no only lends itself to simpler changes and adjustments, such as patching in new devices, but also improves air flow through the space - something that is important for electrical devices. Also in the event of a fault or service disruption, it is much quicker and easier to resolve when the cabinet isn't a total mess!

This is just another example of the Managed Networks that we provide and how we can incorporate all aspects of a business' IT infrastructure into a managed agreement.
