Structured Home Wiring

The home wiring system will use a structured wiring concept, providing a central location for all data communications cable runs (“Home Run” configuration). A central wiring panel (CWP) or hub shall be placed in the lower level storage room (dimensions of the CWP will probably be about 28"H x 14"W x 3"D). Cables (CAT-6e) will be run individually from CWP to required locations (no splices are to be used). Ethernet will be available in all rooms except the bathrooms, the mud room, and the utility room.
In addition to wired data communications, the home will be configured for wireless data comm, and will include multiple wireless access points (WAPs), as required.
Wall outlet plates in rooms will accommodate multiple data communications types, and be identified by room location at the CWP.
Cable will be identified as to function (D-data, T-telephone, V-video) and serviced location (great room – GR, kitchen – K, master bedroom – MBR, etc.). Bundles will be tied for ease of handling. Note: No staples will be used to secure cabling. The wires will be run in bundles containing all the types of wiring. Telephone lines shall NOT be run through the two unused pair of wires in the cable used for Ethernet data.

In-ceiling/wall speakers will be installed in the great room for 7.1 surround sound.

A pair of dual channel speakers with volume control will be installed on the deck.
Wiring (RG6/U quad shielded coax) will support high definition (HD) TV in all rooms where TV is located (RG59 can be used for short run, < 20’ wall outlet to the TV, DVR, and DVD).
Internet connection will be via a high speed cable modem. The ISP will be Charter and they will provide bundled Internet, cable TV, and telephone service.
Data distribution will be via a Linksys Wireless G broadband router.
