Replacing a Network Cable

Replacing a Network Cable

This section describes the procedure for replacing a network cable.


Before replacing a network cable note the following:

  • When network cables are replaced, services are interrupted temporarily.

  • Replace network cables during a time when the network is not busy, for example, between 00:00 am and 06:00 am.


Before replacing a network cable, you need the following tools:

  • Cutter

  • Cable ties

  • ESD wrist strap or ESD gloves

  • Cable tester

  • Crimper


  1. Check the location and cabling of the network cable to be replaced.
  2. Prepare a new network cable that of the same type as old network cable. After a new network cable is made, test its connectivity with a cable tester.
  3. Put on the ESD gloves or wrist strap and connect the grounding terminal to the ESD jack on the rack.
  4. Lay out the new network cable according to the original cabling mode.

    If you need to replace more than one network cable at a time and label the new network cables so that you can distinguish between them. The new network cables must be numbered consistently with the network cables to be replaced.

  5. Remove the old network cable and record the location where it is installed.
    1. Remove the network cable connectors.
    2. Cut the cable tie with a cutter and remove the network cable.
  6. Insert the new network cable connector into the network interface at the reported location. If you hear a click, the connector is fully inserted. If the indicator of the network interface is steady green, the link is Up.
  7. Label the new network cable, as shown in Figure 3-42.

  8. Bind the cable with a cable tie and cut off any extra lengths of tie.
  9. Run the ping command to check the connection between both ends of the new network cable. If both ends fail to communicate normally, check whether the network cable is damaged or connectors are secure.

Follow-up Procedure

  • Gather up and store the tools and the old cable.
  • Separate the old and new cables to avoid confusion.
