    Not exactly hardware pr0n, but let's just say that things look a lot less messy than before.
    Before/after pics here.

    The main difference between the mess before and the approximate order is that I ordered and installed rack blind panels (to force more air through the equipment), and the panel panel at the top. The patch panel is an el-cheapo DeLock keystone affair. Note that the messy SFP+ DACs coming in on the right of the switch will be swapped by optics (through the patch panel, just like the single pink MM LC duplex fiber that is currently there).

    Top to bottom:
    Next steps will be to put wire management brackets in the back of the rack, and, as stated, to replace the DACs with optics.

    That's a Cloud Key; effectively a PoE powered dedicated arm7 machinelet that runs the Unifi Controller for the "prod" network.
