The German city of Reutlingen is employing an RFID-based solution known as Future-Patch, provided by TKM, to detect any incorrect or missing patch cable connections, and to then inform users of the correct connection, thereby preventing problems within its IT network. Networks are composed of fiber-optic or copper cables connected to servers, with patch connectors between cables and receiving ports that carry data to a back-end system. If a cable becomes unplugged or is connected to the wrong port, network performance can be affected, and finding the source of the problem—when there may be tens of thousands of servers and cables involved—can be very time-consuming (see Future-Patch Technology Tracks Cable and Port Connections).
