Patch panel is the equipment mainly used for the office terminal modular management of the front-end information point. It is a very important part of the integrated cabling management subsystem. Whether it is now or in the future, the network integrated cabling of the data center will always need an infrastructure that can expand and manage cables. And among all the available tools, patch panel, which possesses the functions of expansibility and management, can perfectly meet the high-density and high-efficiency requirements of the network integrated cabling.
No matter what the patch panel types are, there are two connection methods for it. One is direct connection, and the other is cross connection.
(1) Straight line connection
Straight line connection (also called mutual connection) refers to connecting one end of a horizontal cable (network cable) to the patch panel in the workshop, and connecting the other end to the patch panel in the distribution room.
(2) Cross connection
Cross connection method refers to installing two patch panels in the horizontal link. One end of the two patch panels in the horizontal link is connected by network cables, and the other end of the two patch panels in the horizontal link is respectively connected to the patch panel in the workshop and the patch panel in the distribution room through network cables.
Both of the above two connection methods of patch panels can locate the communication line to different locations of the building. Therefore, they are both convenient for us not only to manage the communication line but also to (un)plug the mobile terminals.
