The network server room is what makes good communication possible. However, problems may arise when a business needs to move their server room. There can be many reasons for moving a server room. Perhaps the business has simply outgrown the room where the server is currently located. No matter the reason, moving the server room can be a very complicated procedure. Over time, many types of network cabling may have accumulated. Most people would be slow to take on the task of moving a server room, simply because of the confusion of multiple cables.
