Cleaning up spaghetti

Spaghetti (noun):  technical term for the mess that exists in most computer wiring closets, which is a location in your building where all the computer cabling leads to.

This summer, we had plans to update/refresh much of the equipment in our elementary school wiring closets – which meant it was the right time to clean up the “spaghetti”.  In order to accomplish this, they removed all the existing patch cables and equipment, then added restructured the closets with the new gear  – and then used 6 inch cables for the final product. Kudos to our two district technicians, Spencer Van Haaften and Bryan Gray who updated all the elementary school wiring closets. The results not only look great, it will save future time when trouble shooting problems!
