Cable Management

Plan, document and check connections

A clear view of the physical network layer. With Pathfinder, you have cabling and passive technologies sustainably and securely under control.

Smart patching

Pathfinder supports IT and network admins especially in the area of cable management. Complex cable connections are mapped quickly and easily. With Pathfinder, you can conveniently plan tasks and connection areas in advance and check for inconsistencies. Users can also use the tool to fully document switch and distribution panel layouts.

Documentation “on the side”

As a cable management software, Pathfinder supports you effectively and quickly in all work steps that occur daily in the area of cable management. The tool enables documentation intuitively and “on the side”, i.e. alongside your actual day-to-day business.

Cable sharing with Pathfinder

Pathfinder offers the user various ways to map the used and unused wires of a network cable for any number of network connection. Cable sharing is mapped via inlets (AMP connectors), T/Y adapters, RJ21 cables, port splitters and more.
