IT Guys\Girls.. Why you should never have a electrician do any cabling.

New building at work, 5 floors.. all closets are the same.

We did a walk through today and found this gem..

Clicky for big.







I guess he thought the wire management was for decoration only. Looks like someone will be pulling and repatching soon.

As a bonus for viewing my rant, here are a few pics of the "snow storm" moving into the area from the 6th floor helo pad.

Holy crap was it cold and windy..

I'm hoping that at least they were labeled... Otherwise, they'll have to tone them out as well!

Personally, I don't care if they have to tone them out. It should have been done right the first time. The company has come back and said that they are punched down to code.

I'd like the know WHAT code. There isn't a city code... it's low voltage. the only standard that I follow is ETL.

FUBAR is how it's being described.

When my wife and I built our house in 2004, I ran CAT6e to a minimum of 2 drops per room, CAT 5e terminated to a block 66 using the unused pair, and RJ6 quad to each drop. It all goes back the a network panel in the utility room. Routing/switching is tunneled back to my office, all layer 3. Network traffic on the server is isolated to its own vLAN, Cisco 1231a/g handles the wireless on its own vLAN, and generic DHCP is again separated.

If I'm like this at home, guess how I am at work.

My kinda language.


Oh and if you saw some of my wiring closets in one of our buildings you'd crap. Our office moves people around CONSTANTLY so there is always someone from my team, or the few I allow to have closet keys on the desk side group patching cables. Too many hands in the pot and it's a friggin mess in a lot of them.
