Patch Panel/ Wire Management

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Does anyone have any good recommendations for a patch/termination panel. I would like to have a panel where I can terminate everything right into keystones. That way I can just use short wires/cords from keystone connections to outlets. Thanks.

i have that and also bought the 4ft relay rack and a couple shelves for the fios router and the home server, they also sell gigabit switches now, but i had a coupon code for newegg and got a much better deal on a switch..

also if plan on streaming movies from a home server or would just like have a faster network or at least one that you can grow into i would think about running cat6 cable...

I got the Cat6 patch panel from MP, like what vanice posted.
Also got the Cables To Go blank keystone patch panel from Amzn - here.

To hold both of those, I picked up a Tripp Lite 4U hinged patch panel bracket, also from Amzn (they love me). Here is a link.

The trip lite will go directly on the wall, high up in the equipment closet, where everything will terminate. The hinge is nice to be able to get to the rear of the patch panel if needed in the future.

If you are doing a whole house setup, you'll definitely need something larger.

I fourth the Monoprice panel. I'm using the 12 port cat6 one and a bunch of their keystones with no issues.

I used two of these and they worked out really, really well. I have them connected to two routers and we're in business!
