IBM Facilities Cabling Service - fiber transport system can streamline unmanageable clogs of under-floor cabling that contribute to excessive heat buildup. Moves, adds and changes can be more reliable, faster and less disruptive because IBM-tested, -qualified and -branded cabling systems are prefitted with connectors at the manufacturing stage. Direct-attach trunking eliminates long jumper cables, reducing under-floor congestion and enabling better airflow.
