Patch Panel

It is used as connection and is placed between the end points of the network cable and network equipment (hub, router ...). Patch panel is rectangular and there is a specified number of network ports on it. For example, 24 ports, 48 ports and will be placed in any part of the building in several network sockets that may be currently unused and any users are not connected to the network by them, but it may be considered to the socket would be entered to the network of circuit while the users are increasing and that’s why cabling experts use of patch panel to solve the problem. It means that all cables that are connected to the socket will be collected at one point that is the center of the rack. They would be numbered and entered into the patch panel. If necessary, each socket can be connected to switch with a small cable of network. Patch panels are divided into two types: Loaded and unloaded.
patch panel Loaded patch panels: patch panels are placed into the rack in structured cabling, and all network cables are connected to this patch panel. One end of all the network cables would be connected into the outlet network and the other end would be connected to the patch panel. Non-modular/loaded patch panel is produced in types of Cat5 و Cat6 and the number of ports 16, 24, 36 and 48 in various colors and black and with angles of 180 ° and 45 °. Usually in large networks that can be extended, you had better use unloaded/modular patch panel.
Unloaded patch panels: The unloaded/modular patch panels can be placed next to each other, for example, several port Cat5, Cat6, Cat7 and even types of multi-mode and single-mode optical fiber port. If the port is gotten into any trouble, the Keystone is only replaced and it is not necessary to replace the whole patch panel. These patch panels are made in types of 12, 16, 24, 32, 36 and...
