When it comes to selecting a patch panel, there are two options: preloaded or traditional (a.k.a. modular). Preloaded patch panels feature pre-installed connectors; traditional (unloaded) patch panels typically have empty holes where connectors can be installed prior to or during deployment.
So when should you choose a preloaded patch panel over an unloaded one? Below, we list the top three reasons you may want to consider a preloaded patch panel for your next networking project.

We first told you about wideband multimode fiber (WBMMF) back in October 2016, right after the International Organization for Standardization/International Electrotechnical Commission (ISO/IEC) decided on the nomenclature for wideband multimode fiber cable: OM5. This new TIA development – ANSI/TIA-492AAAE – was approved for publication in June 2016. It helps data center managers deal with escalating data rates and the demand for higher bandwidth.

Remotely powered equipment is being deployed in enterprises every day – from wireless access points (WAPs) to IP cameras and phone systems. As these devices play their role in supporting digital building, factors such as centralized powering, power management and backup will become crucial. Based on the locations of these devices, however, providing a close source of local power may be difficult.

Because of their continued growth, the U.S. Office of Management and Budget (OMB) issued a mandate – known as the Data Center Optimization Initiative (DCOI) – to establish efficiency levels that federal data centers must meet by the end of FY2018. Power usage effectiveness (PUE) is one of the metrics that will be used to benchmark, measure and manage these performance levels.
