No data center is complete without cable ties. Cable ties keep thousands of strands of cables neat, organized, and easily accessible. They also prevent damage due to excessive bending or flexing. Many data center managers don’t know it’s possible to purchase the wrong cable ties for an application. Inappropriate cable ties can hurt more than they help, leading to pinched cables, slippage, and poor network performance. Learning the types of cable ties is important for the overall functionality of your data center.
