I wonder if the other side is just as pretty?

Looks pretty but will it work? Ty-raps with long parallel runs and trying to patch all that to switches will be a nightmare.

If it was built in the last 10 years don't expect it to work right.

I guess if I had 120 hours just to dress and terminate some drops I could do it real pretty, too. Three whole weeks! Three whole DAYS is what I'm normally budgeted, possible or not. .Most of the time, my dispatcher is banging on me halfway through for a completion time so I can start the next job.

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

So... what happens in a few years, when all that's in use, and they decide to wire in that last bit at the bottom? setting the next guy up for failure, there...

It's an absolutely beautiful install and should not be criticized. The cost of the install is more than offset by the positive publicity.

I must be the only one that thinks it NOT a good install.

We NEVER use zip-ties on anything above Cat5e, because it's not the zip ties that are bad for the cable but the cinching can cause damage.

I agree with Sam. This installation is absolutely stunning, even if it was nine years ago. Yes, adding cables later will likely destroy what was otherwise a beautiful installation. As for the cable tie debate: They don't appear to be overly tight and besides that's the least of their worries here. What goes on in front is where the real debacle begins.

I have to agree. Reminds me of the old Bell System days when installers and techs took pride in their work.

I have seen pictures like that for a number of years. I wonder how far back, along the bundle, does the installer go, to get the cables in the correct orientation? The part we see looks perfect, but that perfection cannot possible go all the way to the other end, can it?

Is it a case of the cables having been terminated at this end, randomly? And then labelled at the far end? How could one possibly get them to look that good, and also be in the correct order?

Inquiring (but not OCD) minds want to know.

I did think it strange that there are no labels on those cables.
