The Story Behind PATCH MANAGER

Are you curious where the PATCH MANAGER name came from? Connectivity is at the heart of what we do, and cables are our #1 passion. In 2002, the founders realized that there was no software available to meet the standard required for accurate management of the physical layer infrastructure: its cabling, connectivity, and fundamentally its patch cabling!
