Server room cabling nightmare

What I started with

Although wireless technologies can reduce the cable clutter hidden behind many desks, server rooms remain a haven for power cords, network cables, and peripheral wiring. Unfortunately, many server rooms are built with little or no regard for cable organization. Such a lack of planning can quickly turn an orderly environment into a cabling nightmare.

Our Server room cabling nightmare gallery chronicles a project that brings order to cable chaos.

Just a complete mess of spaghetti.
