A company I work for recently paid "a professional" to wire an office with Cat6 cable including terminating the RJ45 jacks in a patch panel.
When I looked at the patch panel I saw that the wires had not been terminated in the patch panel in accordance with the instructions (way to much exposed cable, and not routed out the side of the panel using the cable brackets), or what I perceive to be best practices. My primary concern is the length of exposed cable.
Here is a picture of the patch panel/wiring -
I am aware of the existence of the TIA/EIA 568a/b wiring codes, but have been unable to find any statement in them about exposed wiring. I've also heard conflicting information about the requirement to limit the exposed wiring. So my questions -
Is there anything from the picture which speaks to whether the job was done to professional standards or not - particularly does the wiring in the image below accord with best practices and is it TIA/EIA 568 compliant.
If not, what is the likely consequence of the cables not having been crimped according to the instructions ?
