SAN Switches placement is patch panel environment



Need some suggestion. 


In our LAB we have FC patch panel casste for evry server Rack, and we have many SAN switches which are 24-port/48-port/96-port 4GB/8GB/16GB  for connectivity. 


In this scenario, is it a good idea to place all SAN switches in a single RACK since every server RACK already have a patch panel casste? Or it is better to place SAN switches in Server RACKs along with casste?


Can someone please clarify my doubt. 


Thanks & Regards,

Shashi Kanth.
