Join Ed Liberman for an in-depth discussion in this video Cable management, part of CompTIA Server+ (SK0-004) Cert Prep: 5 Networking.

So let's talk a little bit about how this is done.…The first item that I want to talk to you about…is something called a cable channel.…This is…a form of housing, if you want to call it that,…which is used to specifically route your cables…along floors, up walls, under desks,…or anywhere else you could think of…that you need to run a cable,…and you want to have some kind of protective housing.…
