Due to continued expansion, Origo Services asked Computer Relocations to assist with their move to the prestigious Lochside View Business Park in Edinburgh. Having previously used CRL for hardware relocation, on this occasion Origo took advantage of some of the new services we had recently introduced.
Following an initial site survey to identify current hardware, our cable auditor spent three days tracing every cable and recording each connection. Once collated, the information was used to create a patch and port diagram which acted as the template for cabling Origo’s new facility. An updated version of this document was presented to the customer to be used as an aid for future support.
Prior to the move date, to minimise downtime, our rack wiremen produced looms of patch cables for each rack. Then length of cables had been calculated using the rack diagrams created during the audit. Each connection was pre-labelled and ready to be connected once the hardware relocation was complete. As the client had purchased new racks, we were in a position to pre-install some of the looms and await the arrival of the hardware.
