Structured Wiring and Networking Panels
Structured wiring is a general term that refers to a whole-house network of audio, video, data, telephone, television, home automation or security signals. Structured wiring begins with a structured networking panel (SNP), which accepts cables from outside providers and distributes the signals directly to each room in your home. These direct lines are called “home runs” and they ensure the strongest possible connection and signal to each of your electronic devices.
Structured wiring can be installed while a home is under construction, retrofitted during a remodel or added on its own. This buying guide will explain what to look for in structured wiring systems and networking panels, so you can feel confident you’ll receive the highest level of performance from your electronics.
