So after 4 years since we started looking for a plot of land, our 6 month house construction is now half-way through (3 months to go) and we're getting to the point of doing the cabling.
I've mapped out 32 data points and a handful of phone and antenna points - all of which will terminate in the garage (which is roughly central in the house) along with the NBN NTD box.
I was wondering, is it worth installing a cabinet in the garage with a rack-mounted patch panel and switch? Is this easy and/or worthwhile?
I'm of two minds whether to bother. It would be nice, or I was thinking of just putting in 3 of these: http://www.4cabling....atch-panel.html
Anyone got an opinion?
