Abstract: For cable management, a bi-stable liquid crystal display is positioned on an exterior segment of a communications cable. A display module that connects to the bi-stable liquid crystal display, connects to the communications cable with one or more pins, and receives the signal associated with one or more messages about the communications cable. The display module further causes the one or more messages to be shown on the bi-stable liquid crystal display in response to the display module receiving the signal. For cable management, a bi-stable liquid crystal display is positioned on an exterior segment of a communications cable. A display module that connects to the bi-stable liquid crystal display, connects to the communications cable with one or more pins, and receives the signal ...more ...less

Abstract: In one embodiment, a method for testing a cable includes receiving a read-signal profile read at a receiving-end of a cable upon an initial test signal being input to a sending end of the cable, calculating a cross-correlation function between the read-signal profile and a matched filter output, and determining a peak value of the cross-correlation function. In another embodiment, a system includes a device, the device including logic for receiving a read-signal profile read at a receiving-end of the cable upon an initial test signal being input to a sending end of the cable, logic for calculating a cross-correlation function between the read-signal profile and a matched filter output, logic for determining a peak value of the cross-correlation function, and logic for storing the peak value to a computer readable medium. Other methods, systems, and computer program products are also described according to various embodiments.

Abstract: An approach to cable management is presented. A bi-stable liquid crystal display that requires no power to maintain an image is attached to a communications cable. A bi-stable liquid crystal display may be attached to each end of the cable. The bi-stable liquid crystal displays may be built into the connectors. A display module connects to the bi-stable liquid crystal display and receives signals associated with a message about the communications cable. The display module causes messages to be shown on the bi-stable liquid crystal display in response to receiving the signal. The signal may be generated by a user with a hand held driver. The signal may also be generated automatically by computing devices (such as switches) that are attached to the communications cable. Users may easily determine information about the communications cable by looking at the messages on the bi-stable liquid crystal displays. An approach to cable management is presented.
