Q: What are the benefits of using a patch panel?
A: Patch panels will allow testing routing and maintenance of network cables connected to your network. With a patch panel this is quickly done just by making changes to cables on the patch panel itself. Patch panels also allow for easier cable management and identification of cable routing.
Q: What is a rack unit?
A: A rack unit U or RU is a unit of measure that describes the height of equipment designed to mount in a rack. A rack unit is 1.75 inches. Typically one rack unit will take three vertical screw holes on each side of a standard rack.
Q: What are the advantages of using a wall mounting bracket instead of a full-size rack?
A: A wall mounting bracket is a great alternative when minimum space is required for your set-up or if you need to save space. They are efficient and still allow you to get to your equipment for easy cable management.
Q: How do I know that my patch panel will fit into the rack before I buy it?
A: Most patch panels are 19 inches in length and most rackmount equipment is built to fit those standard patch panels. If you are still unsure the measurements for each mounting bracket are listed on the description tab as well as the specs tab.
