Building A Rack, How To?

Any good videos/tutorials on how to wire and set up a network rack?

Looking for principles of where different pieces should go, from switches to nvrs, and why.

How to plan it out so it looks good and makes sense and is accessible.

Ive done several small ones but I generally just wing it. They turn out ok but I am sure its not up to any sort of industry norm.

If theres nothing great out there, IPVM would probably be epic at making one.
