How do I patch and where should I patch to?

Step 1:

To patch a cable, release the cable stopper (learn here how to release the cable stopper). Do not pull a cable if the cable stopper is still locked.

Step 2:

We recommend keeping the distance between the PATCHBOX and your switch short. Best case: The PATCHBOX is right above/below the switch.


Step 3:

Patch your cable (within the specified range of rack units of your Cassette), then guide the cable to the Patchcatch in the same rack unit as the hardware you have patched to, then guide the cables to the Patchcatch in the same rack unit as your PATCHBOX – and don’t forget to lock the cable stopper at the end. If the switch is right above or below your PATCHBOX, you can skip the Patchcatch due to the short distance covered. And as you are using the Patchcatch you do not need any further cable managers. We highly recommend not using any cable management other than the Patchcatch – this likely will result in cable spaghetti and bad maintainability.
