Cable Management

Cables can easily become tangled, making them difficult to work with, sometimes resulting in devices accidentally becoming unplugged as one attempts to move a cable. Such cases are known as "cable spaghetti". Cable management is important in many fields, such as IT, communications, power distribution, facility wiring, local area networks, etc.

Cable Management for rack-mount system

The trend in Enterprise-Class Level data centers is to implement high-density systems that make the most of available facility space. Of high importance with Enterprise-Class Level systems are reliability and availability-issues that are addressed with the use of redundant components and cabling. These strategies result in highly populated equipment racks with an abundance of power and data cables.

As the component density of a rack increases, so does the need to manage associated cables effectively. Mismanaged or un-managed cables can result in several types of issues:

Reduced performance due to signal crosstalk and interference across adjacent cables
Difficulty maintenance because components are blocked by cables
Hazardous situations of damaged cables due to unchecked or unprotected movement
Cooling issues due to poor or restricted airflow around active components


Any of the above situations can require unscheduled downtime to correct, and for Enterprise-Class Level systems that is very costly and unacceptable. Effective management of power and data cabling of a rack can help achieve important overall goals of the IT infrastructure. This is where we come in. At ACM, we offer structured cabling network services in Singapore, thus helping you to efficiently manage cables. We offer:

Stable, reliable performance through reduced or eliminated crosstalk and interference
Ease of serviceability and maintenance through better and safer access to individual components
Thermal efficiency through maximum air flow for cost-efficient equipment cooling
