Built a rack cabinet in the computer room where the communication devices are located and where I can keep the more noisy servers. For the moment this is still under construction.
The goal is to have a soundproofed cabinet where I can place various servers and devices which do not require direct access. The cabinet should have an adequate filtered ventilation sucking from the footing and blowing out at the top above the inner room. I was initially hoping to have enough space to host fullsize rack cases but since these beasts are a) very noisy b) expensive, I resigned and installed only a small rack for the network devices.
Two prefabricated cupboards were originally embedded in the wall. I had also requested that additional cabling was to be drawn to this point from various locations elsewhere in the apartment and the original switchboard for both data and phone is located behind the wall to the right.
The door is now installed as well as the filtering and ventilation. All that remains are some door handles, locks and additional fans to push the air through the whole contraption.
