What Are Rack Cabinets Useful For?
Rack cabinets are metal structures that are used to accommodate inside, in an organized way, the main elements that make up the computer and communications network of a company.
These devices are switches, routers, patch panels, servers, UPS, video surveillance recorders, and the cables or patch cords to interconnect them.
The basic structure of a rack cabinet is made up of a base, ceiling and several internal metal profiles that allow the equipment they contain to be screwed together. They usually have a transparent glass door, so the status of the devices that are housed can be checked without having to open them, and they usually incorporate a lock with a key to prevent manipulation of said elements by unauthorized personnel.
There are small racks (up to 18U high), ideal for SMEs that do not require a large number of network devices, which can be installed fixed to the wall, and are known as wall mounted racks. Large rack cabinets (18U to 47U high) should not be fixed to the wall, for safety, and are called ground standing racks.
