Add Cable ID field when we link network ports

It will be nice to add a field named Cable ID when we link to network ports together. This is nice to have because in Datacenter cables management best practices, we need to identify each connected cables with a unique ID to help DC tech (remote hands) to spot the right cable.


This is exactly what we found missing in Glpi. In our datacenters, all cables have unique tags (this is not limited to network patch cables but also power cables, usb cables, ...)

It would be perfect if every connection could be given a "name tag".
