The Central Distribution Panel:
The Central Distribution Panel is the control hub of the system where all outside services enter the home...including, telephone, cable TV or off-air antenna, DSS satellite, internet services, etc.
Unlike conventional wiring schemes which utilize a single large loop from room to room, the Central Distribution Center, acting as a "hub", provides direct runs to each location for phone, coaxial cable, etc. much in the same way the main electrical panel distributes power throughout the home. The end result is a much neater, more efficient system which can be easily and simply accessed for future upgrades or changes.
High Performance Cable and Connections
Certain devices, such as digital satellite, high-speed Internet and digital TV require high performance cables to allow full access throughout the home. Most structured wiring systems include RG-6 (Quad-Shield) coaxial cable and Cagtegory 5 (4-pair | 4-line capable) high-speed phone wire. Fiber optic cable can also be included to provide for tomorrow's technology, today.
Multi-Use Wall Outlets
The outlets installed at each room location will determine which services are available at that particular site. Structured wiring systems use
"modular" fixtures that can be configured in various ways. Choices vary from single service fixtures (such as telephone), multiple service fixtures (such as, telephone and coaxial) to outlets providing ALL services within the home
to a single location. The combinations available are limited only by the imagination.
