Cabinet Rationalisation


Cabinet Rationalisation is key to maximise efficiency of your network infrastructure

Businesses rely on their communications equipment to run their operation and often waste lots of time dealing with faulty wires and cabling.

Network cabinets over time can become untidy and disorganised, this can make fault finding and emergency works take longer than usual. Our team will re-organise untidy cabinets, strip out old systems and re-patch current systems so that your core communication services are able to underpin your business.

Every business is unique, meaning every business has different requirements. Remark take pride in every Cabinet Rationalisation project, so you can be assured that your project will be bespoke to your requirements.

Cabinet Tidy Up

As your business grows and expands I.T cabinets, Telephone closets, Distribution Frames, and Data centres can become disorganised and unmanageable.

Cabinet Rationalisation is a service offered by Remark Group that strips and then re-builds the cabinet to a showroom condition. All patch cords would be replaced with the correct sizing’s and any colour scheme could be introduced according to client specifications.

The introduction of correct cable management systems and routing would make for easy identification and tracing of faults. This would include side management within the cabinet to allow access from top to bottom.

Remark tailors network maintenance and service agreements to the unique needs of each customer, offering a range of scheduled services and response-led support through our mobile engineering teams, Helpdesk and remote diagnostics.
