I am currently in the process of wiring my house so I can tell you what I am using and you can always tweak that to fit your needs. The reseller I used, Graybar Electric "http://www.graybar.com
", is located in San Jose, California. The following is a list of the items and the current prices for each.
35 units of Z6A-02 (RJ45 JACK) = .026 / lb. each = $10.15 each; 35 = $355.25
1 of MX-PNL-48 (PATCH PANEL) = .9 / lb. each = $45.13 each; 1 = $45.13
5 of MX-FP-S-02-02 (2 PORT FACE PLATES) = .064 / lb. each = $2.26 each; 5 = $11.30
5 of MX-FP-S-03-02 (3 PORT FACEPLATES) = .062 / lb. each = $2.37 each; 5 = $11.85
7 of MX-FP-S-04-02 (4 PORT FACEPLATES) = .064 / lb. each = $2.26 each; 7 = $15.82
1000FT OF CAT6 CABLE, 9C6R4-E4-02-RBA = 28 lbs. each = considered as quantity of 1 = $349.38
1000FT OF CAT6A Z-MAX, 9C6R4-A5-06-R1A. = considered as quantity of 1 = $509.68
, weight for 1 reel is 48 lbs.
I am wiring my house for 10g in my attempt to future proof my home the best I can. I even built a media server for whole house media distribution that I have in a standard 19in rack and so forth. I am using Siemon Z-Max (Cat 6A) cable for the network, Siemon Cat 6 for everything else (telephones, RS-232 over Cat, and PoE for cameras), and Belden 4Ghz sat cable for my DirecTV runs. For today;s standards it is a bit overkill, but I'd rather have more than I need in terms of cable performance, and still have plenty of overhead for multiple concurrent network users, HD Video streaming, Lossless Audio Streaming, and Home Controls (automation, security, and PoE Cameras). In my particular case I find it easier to upgrade hardware that has easy access then to upgrade all the wiring in my home to take advantage of some new piece of hardware that is useless without the proper wiring.
I hope this helps, and if you need any more information just let me know.
