Learning Network Cable Management - A Small Business Open Frame Rack Build

In this video I build an open frame network rack from scratch, explaining along the way the each step and the reason I am doing it the way that I am. This is intended for a small business network, not a home residence. I made this video for first time builders, so I try not to assume that you have built a lot of these and that you are looking for some general guidance. With an open frame rack, taking control of the giant pile of wires you end up with is more important than ever - both on the front of the rack and the rear where the cables are entering.

Below are the items I used in this video - these are Amazon links that help me out, but of course you don't have to use them.
