Hi,

 

Looking for ideas for a small comms cabinet to go freestanding beside my working from home desk to house things like some Raspberry Pis, Philips Hue Bridge etc, just small things I want to house and tidy up. Main requirements would be skinny so it fits into a particular gap, few shelves and options for cable management/cable ties etc.

 

I'm not looking for a comms cabinet to rack mount things, just a wooden style cabinet, similar to the one in the pic below I found online.

For my daughter, I just screwed a couple of plastic wire spice-jar racks on cupboard wall ... held modem, router, power adapters and and external drive.

 

About $10 each from Storage Box I recall.

Random pic from amazon (unfortunately here in Germany).

 

I often use cheap metal letter trays (i.e. from ikea, but far too expensive in NZ compared to here and the shelves need to be turned upside down, front handles can be used for labeling or swapped to the rear) for simple, compact setups for my customers who appreciate it (not everybody uses/wants 19“-Racks). The FritzBox router is always placed on top because of the unobstructed WiFi radiation. And you have to come up with something for the network cable routing (i.e. cut through the back and line with scouring tape).

CDLNZ make some reasonable 10" wide data cabinets    

 

R10WM9D is the model we use. They also have a range of accessories for them like shelves, patch panels etc.
