A cable manager, also known as a cable management panel or cable organizer, is a device used in structured cabling systems to organize and manage cables for improved aesthetics, functionality, and maintenance. It is designed to prevent cable clutter, reduce cable stress, and facilitate easier identification, tracing, and maintenance of network cables.
The primary purpose of a cable manager is to ensure the proper routing, separation, and organization of cables within a network infrastructure. By providing designated pathways and compartments, it helps to keep cables neatly arranged, preventing them from becoming tangled or obstructing airflow. This not only improves the overall appearance of the cabling system but also enhances the efficiency and performance of the network.
Cable managers come in various forms, including horizontal cable managers and vertical cable managers, to suit different installation requirements. Horizontal cable managers are typically installed within racks or cabinets, running horizontally along the front or rear side, while vertical cable managers are mounted vertically along the side of the racks or cabinets.
