Components of a Home Structured Wiring System
The Distribution Panel Usually located in one of the closets or the attic of your home, the distribution panel does two things: 1) terminates all of the service provider services: telephone, DSL, Cable TV, Cable Modem, Security to this central location within the house and 2) Distributes those signals to locations throughout the house. Audio/Video/Security Camera sources from within your home can also be delivered to this central location for distribution throughout the house. Various active/passive modular units installed within the distibution panel allow for the distribution of the signal to locations throughout the house. Control devices in the distribution panels also allow home automation capabilities. An electrical power source in the distribution panel provides power to various powered devices installed in the panel. More about home structured wiring distribution panels and components
