Using Keystone Wiring

There are many options when choosing network cables and accessories, that being said, using Keystone wiring and modules is common place when dealing with cat 5 cables.

Keystone produces modular jacks that are used in wall plates and punch-down racks. They are of very high quality. But you do have to know your network wiring schemes to be able to use Keystone wiring items. And you must have knowledge of terminating Max 5e, Max 6, and 10G 6 Max Keystone modules.

If you choose Keystone to fill your networking accessory needs, then you still have to be educated with a pair of punch-down tools. This is because most of the Keystone modules require a secure punch down in order to function properly without signal loss.
