I recently implemented Cisco switches with PoE. As a result, my cabinet depth was barely enough to accommodate the longer switch. With regular 24awg patch cables, I couldn't even close the door! Replacing them with the thinner 28awg saved me from having to purchase a new cabinet, and they look great!
