The reason I am asking this is because I am an amateur, so if it is obvious to you, it's not to me, so please explain.
I saw this picture and I panicked a little bit,
First of all I know older patch panels had two sides one side that you punch the Ethernet in and the other side is where the actual feeder/port of the Ethernet is, these new models have port on both sides, so you don't have to punch things in, is that true?
where are the switches/routers in this picture? do they installed all the patch panels on one rack and switch/routers will be on the next rack?
can you help me figure where all those patch cables are going, that I marked up?, which one goes to the switches, which one goes to the building rooms?(ofc this is not your design, me neither, just make a guess, it helps me understand the typical pattern of these
