This is our new Patch solution – VisiPatch 360 by Systimax http://www.commscope.com/Product-Catalog/Enterprise/Brand/SYSTIMAX%C2%AE-Patching-Solutions/VisiPatch-360%C2%AE/
I spent half of a weekend setting this all up, but it’s a pretty awesome system. For us, we have it so the middle yellow area goes back to our switches, and the top/bottom blue parts go out to the floor outlets. We connect a yellow to the blue patch port we want to make active, and it’s done. It makes moves and changes really easy.
The metal doors open to both left or right, and come off completely – that’s where a lot of the cable mess hides, but there’s a lot of room and nothing really gets tanged.
I’d recommend having a look at a system like this if you’re building a new comms room, or redoing one from scratch.
