The home communications closet

with one comment

Because I am slowly ripping the house apart, it makes sense to add some CAT5e at the same time. Structured cables require a central location where you can patch them together, and at home I don’t want to dedicate a load of space to a server room. I spent some quality time with the hall cupboard and some MDF.

The "After shot"

I mounted the patch panel vertically so all the back-end CAT5 will be hidden. Power is fed to everything from behind the panel (held in with magnetic clips) to keep things tidy.
