I tried those 1' patch cords. They suck, especially when you need to pull the patch panel out to add more drops! What, maybe $19 (tops) for cable management? Still looks better than the rat's next on the top. Oh wait, those are swell drip loops.

We have moved almost entirely to unpopulated patch panels. To help with the add wires later issue.

The conversation about this picture is happening in the photo forum.

Trying to move it here, is this cabling CPE or just poor LEC cable management? ponder

Looks like a combination of both. I have a couple customer sites that looked like that until we cleaned them up. A job like this is where patience is learned.


Sometimes the thoughts in my head get so bored, they go for a stroll through my mouth. This is rarely a good thing.

Are these blocks intended to be touched by CPE vendors? I've been under the impression that the LEC would cross-connect from here to blocks that run to other locations (risers) and CPE vendors would take it from there. ponder

The wide blocks with 6 posts across are for CPE.

All the customer wires should be punched down on them once and never touched again unless there was a problem on the block itself.

The LEC leaves jumpers with a tag on them, or terminates onto a special 66 block with a LEC cover on it.

This arrangement is almost never followed, lots of LEC techs dont know how to 66 block, and I swear even more customer techs dont know either.

The big black cable on the left going to blocks makes me think this is a big east coast city. The midwest and west coast are way too uptight about lightning/high voltage to allow unprotected pairs like that.
