Wirewerks MINUS1U Patch Panel
The NextSTEP MINUS1U Patch Panel consolidates fiber-cable-management and active equipment in the same 1RU of rack space. This panel divides 1RU of rack space into a NextSTEP chassis on one side along with a reserved space on the other side to receive active network equipment including hubs, routers, and switches.
Judge’s comment: “This well-thought-out innovation is a particularly valuable find for a technician who has run out of rack space. It also makes for smoother project administration in cases when scheduling and managing the cabling and networking trades poses a challenge.”
