A rack diagram is a two-dimensional elevation drawing showing the organization of specific equipment on a rack. It is drawn to scale and may show the front and the rear elevation of the rack layout.
Rack diagrams can be extremely valuable when selecting equipment or racks to buy, since they are drawn to scale and can help determine what size to choose. In addition, a rack diagram allows for efficient organization prior to moving the actual equipment.
Installing equipment in a rack without planning in advance can create issues. You may not have adequate space for equipment, cables, and patch panels. Creating a rack diagram can help you plan and organize your equipment in an optimal fashion.
