Server is a system that accepts and responds to the request made by client. As a newbie to the Networking and Server technology, I ‘ve just heard about the Server system. But while working with Avishkar Interiors, I came to know about the Networking is not only about the server installation. we have to start from the Scratch from laying the data and voice cables for Networking. Data cables, commonly used CAT-6 for networking must be laid in the Raceways and Cabletrays. So, there is a passive part and Active part of Networking.
A dedicated room for all the Data and voice is in server room, which is basically a heart of IT Companies and even most banks, corporate offices and companies. All the laid cables traverse through the flooring or ceiling and terminated in Server room. Considering the data points in total companies are laid upto server room. For Example, if there are 350 data points, then there must be 350 cables are laid upto server room. Now there is a bunching of cables and grouping of 24 cables. Cables will dressup properly on the rack and will get punched in a 24-port or 48-port patch panel.
As soon as Network Rack gets completed, with all the patch panels and Cables terminated on the server side as well as on the workstation side or user side. Network Racks are connected to server rack and as well as ISP Racks. Server Racks contains number of servers. I just had my first encounter with the Server.
