| Rack Cabling|
|I have been tasked to find an industry standard that covers cable organization within an equipment rack between devices. We have a large server floor and racks of "rats nest" cabling. I am hoping for specifics on how to standardize power, data (copper and fiber), and K/V/M cables. I have found standards that cover closet, plenum, and everything in between, but no standards on rack cabling. Any suggestions would be appreciated.|

I do not know of any standards on this but many of the manufacturers of this equipment will be glad to help you out. There is a standard being developed for Data Centers which may include a section on cable management within a rack.
