Should I use individual power supplies for all 22 modems or get SMPS-based consolidated power supplies? I hear that data center experts are recommending the SMPS-based supply.
We definitely need custom-made PDUs to connect these 22 adapters in rack.
I would also suggest that you pursue dual power cording for both the server and the modem power supplies if you are set up to provide dual power feeds to your equipment. Incidentally, there are Wiremold plug strips as well as more sophisticated cabinet power strips that are designed with transformer spacing. It should not be necessary to purchase custom devices if you choose to stay with transformers.
