If you want to set up a wired network that includes multiple wall ports in various rooms, a patch panel in a central location can provide a simple, neat and easy-to-manage solution. So what is a patch panel you ask? A patch panel is essentially an array of ports on one panel. Each port connects, via a patch cable, to another port located elsewhere in your building.
Troubleshooting problems are simplified with patch panels since they provide a single location for all input jacks They’re frequently used in industries that require extensive sound equipment because they work well for connecting a variety of devices.
Patch panels bundle multiple network ports together to connect incoming and outgoing lines — including those for local area networks, electronics, electrical systems and communications.
