What is a patch panel? Think of it as an old fashioned switchboard. A place where network connections are made and often rearranged, which guide the information to the correct destination, each and every time. The RJ45 CAT 5e patch panel is 19 inch rack mountable and supports both 568A and 568B installations. Compatible with 110 punchdown tools, this Patch Panel's front-loading modular design makes termination, upgrading and trouble-shooting easy at any location and any position.
