DataCenter color-coding cabling schema

I'm not sure I'm keen on a colour standard - especially given our recent difficulties
sourcing cabling to our spec in certain colours...or lengths!    however, what we do - and others
do based on this thread - is have our own internal colour scheme for purposes/systems/customers.

fibre is far more difficult for this - coloured labels (and a decent labelling regime in the first place)
win in that arena.  (obviously the copper plant has labelling too but the choice of colours means
that function/purpose is already known from many metres away ;-) )
