While MDF/IDF closets take on all shapes and sizes, they are an essential arm of the data center. They play a critical role in networking for all mission-critical environments. Also, they connect all IT data to end users. Some best practices include: Rack layouts (2 post/full enclosures) properly sized for future growth, cable management deployment, cabling (color code your cables including labeling), spec out correct size of UPS, power to your MDF and/or IDF (size power for future growth and allow for true A & B use), in-rack PDUs, rack/room security (including surveillance), environmental monitoring, ventilation/cooling and cleanliness.
