I guess bread ties are the new method of cable management?

"New??" Since nearly all fibers jumpers come with at least 3, they're just so darn convenient!

Serious money in boxes and the cabling is crap.

Caught some 6504s (what model SUPs?) and 3900 series, Aruba (wireless controller?), Juniper SSG-5s and 140s,
Bluecoats, EMCs... my inner geek heart's a-pitter patter.

...what's all this gear host, and are there any openings for personnel?

Regards

Its for an Insurance Compagny.. that hardware is hosting stuff for all of our offices..

the 1/2 of 1u, its a Fluke device.. i dont remember the name..

the cabling was not completed, that was during the install.. everything has been done better after.

All this stuff is in a Datacenter, in cages.

We also have EMC San

Exactly why I don't bother to post pictures of any of the 4 data centers I am in. I use a lot of lacing but there are wire ties and not every cable is text book perfect. It's neat and organized but the crowd that's quick to criticize but not post their own work will just piss me off.

What is the device below the 3800-series router in the pic 5th from the bottom?

Juniper SSG5 (assuming it's the pic 5th from the top). The other device is a network analyzer.

It's not too bad, I've seen far worse.

i agree battleop. I think it drives me nuts on other forums people want to critique what your cables should look like with no proof of their handy work.

My biggest gripe is that it just needs to be done such that it at least appears that someone made a good and reasonable attempt at it. Most of the time things are 180-degrees opposite of this.

That's where I start nit-picking.

Zip-ties, Velcro, or String, take your pick but at least TRY and do it right.

Agreed with AMD.

Honestly I couldn't care less about lacing/zipping/velcro/etc. But what I do care about is things done relatively neatly, and most importantly with the right amount of SLACK!

There's no excuse for fiber connectors and Cat5 connectors to be wrenched at a 90deg angle or pulling so hard they are coming out of the crimps. That's just sheer utter lazy stupidity.

I don't care how ya do it in the end, just do it where shit won't break or aren't stressed. There's a pile of connector/fiber stressing in the above pics. But being temporary I won't nitpick. We all know staging and testing is a complete mess at the best of times and that's different from operating in a live environment.

The other thing that annoys me as a semi-cable fanatic... Is idiots who spend 200K on a single box, but can't be fucked to spend 200$ on cabling to actually plug the damn box in. Just as idiotic as someone buying a million dollar car and bitching about 100$ worth of gas in the tank. Smarten the hell up!

That little guy looks like a Juniper SRX100.

Great little security box for small branch locations. Can do IPSEC tunnels as well as full intrusion detection.

Edit:
Nevermind - it is an SSG - SRX100 doesn't have console and AUX ports on the left (has console and USB instead).

My aplogies
