Keep those cables under control

Cable management is critical to the performance of the network and should be part of every system design. This applies to all areas
of the network, including cables that are supported by ladder racks. Consider situations where vertical supports are added to both sides of the ladder rack to allow layers of cable. The resulting degradation of the
cable performance, as it is pulled tightly over the sharp edge of a ladder stringer, can be significant. The same is true of cable that passes over a ladder rung that supports all of the weight from multiple cable layers above. Although often overlooked, cables supported by ladder rack are a large part of the cabling infrastructure, and should conform to relevant standards for cable management.
