In the context of triple play, home network wiring has become more and more complicated. After an optical fiber enters the home, it not only carries Internet services, but also IPTV and telephone services. So, how to design a more practical network cabling scheme and avoid some pits in the network cabling after the optical fiber goes into the home?
Before carrying out network wiring, you must first make a home network plan according to the needs of your home. For example, which room needs to use the pull network cable, which room needs to use the IPTV service. Then make a comprehensive plan according to the needs, and then carry out the network wiring construction.
It is important to do a good job of network planning
At present, home broadband basically includes two services: Internet access and IPTV, and some families will also apply for landlines. A number of businesses are destined to be professional and forward-looking in network cabling planning. After all, network cabling is a hidden project.
Many people are used to placing optical modems, routers and other equipment in the weak current box, which is a very unreasonable and unprofessional plan. In the case of taking into account both beauty and practicality, the weak current box is only suitable for placing a light cat, and the wireless router is best placed in the living room. Then, all the network cables converge to the living room and connect to the wireless router.
Taking into account the expansion of network services in the future, it is best to lay three network cables in the living room. One network cable carries the Internet service, and the other one carries the IPTV service. Another network cable is spare. If you need to install a landline phone, it is recommended to add another network cable to carry the data transmission of the landline phone.
Network cable specification selection and construction
Considering that the broadband has started at 200 megabits, although the super five network cable can also run gigabit, but the stability is not as good as the six cable. In addition, the broadband speed of the three major operators is still continuing, and gigabit broadband is the trend. The author strongly recommends choosing a Category 6 network cable, and you can use a Category 6 network cable if conditions permit.
The wireless router is placed in the living room, and then the network cable is separately connected to each room from the living room. If the water heater or washing machine in the bathroom also needs a Wi-Fi network, consider pulling a network cable to the bathroom and deploy a Wi-Fi network for smart home appliances.
When wiring the home network, from the living room to each room, it is recommended to lay 2 network cables, one for Internet access and the other for backup. For the sake of appearance, it is recommended to use the 86-type network panel, and use the Gigabit network module.
The network cable must be threaded into the duct. Because the Category 6 cable is relatively thick, it is strongly recommended to wear one network cable per duct.
In short, home network cable wiring should be planned well in the early stage, and it must be very forward-looking. More importantly, it is better to lay one more network cable than to save network wiring in order to save money. Once a renovation is complete, rewiring is very expensive and destroys home renovations.
