Hi guys

I had a question about EOR type design.

Do I have to have a dedicated rack just for my EOR switches (2), or can I place them in a rack that already has servers in it.

My worry is structured cabling design will get in the way of having both servers and EOR in one rack

Your question is really more about physical logistics and how much space you want to leave or expansion.

Assuming you cable everything 100% from day 1 then you don't really need to worry about expansion.

You need to look at the rack and determine how you are going to organize it. Are you going to use stackables and place the switches between the patch panels? Are you going to use a chassis switch and then order different length cables to connect the panels to the switch?

I personally do TOR (Top of Rack) switching with large fiber cores or fiber distribution switches.

Good Luck!
