You know, fibre optic patch panel can use fiber optic patch cables to cross-connect, connected to fiber optic communication equipment or test the individual fibers in the fiber optic cables. A fiber patch panel usually is composed of two parts, the compartment that contains Fiber Optic Adapter (bulkhead receptacles), and the compartment that contains fiber optic splice trays and excess fiber cables.
And how does it work? Fiber patch panels provide a convenient way to rearrange fiber cable connections and circuits. A simple patch panel from Fiberstore is a metal frame containing bushings in which fiber optic patch cord connectors plug in on either side. One side of the panel is usually fixed, meaning that the fiber cables are not intended to be disconnected. On the other side of the panel, fiber cables can be connected and disconnected to arrange the circuits as required.
Installation of a server room in a building to send and receive signal from workstation and to the internet is a tricky part. A server room to premises is just as brain to a body. We know that the transmission of data has been properly dealt by nerves and each nerve sends or receives signal to or from the brain regularly. The same with the cables management works with Fiber Adapter Plates in LAN.
However, the optic fiber cables need to be properly and neatly installed in the fiber patch panels so that can distinguish which cable is coming from which port and would going to which port. This part of task in installing cables through patch panels requires skill and meticulousness.
Therefore, it is utmost necessary that whatever the size of organization and the building; this network must be installed according to a map charted as per layout of the building so as to establish exactly how to connect the main server room to each and every workstation through patch panels, such as Corning CCH panels, on each floor or particular spots.
So, when it comes to organize server room, we must begin with the design of the building. If it is under construction stage, the fiber patch panels can be easily designed and allocated in the building plan just like electricity or plumbing plan. In case the building is already complete then appropriate patch panels and colored cables can be arranged and fitted at required intervals to ease smooth running of data to and from server as well as to easily sort out any difficulty arising at a later stage hindering the data transmission.
Nowadays, the manufacturers of cabling and networking accessories have produced several type of patch panels (both for fiber optic cables and copper cables); all kinds of cables for data transmissions in different colors to distinguish at a glance which cable is meant for what purpose and racks system; all of them to facilitate an easy to manage networking throughout the premises.
Moreover, the cables need to be properly tagged at both ends, that is user’s end and panel’s end so as to remove or replace only the faulty one without disturbing other users, server or discontinuation of networking service. It would be in fitness of things if proper cable management is established at the onset to have an ease of satisfaction throughout the life span of networking.Well, those are what advice I can provide, if you have better thoughts, welcome to communicate with me.
