Philex 24-port unpopulated Keystone Patch Panel is a networking component used to organize and manage network cables in a structured cabling system. It provides a framework for mounting and connecting keystone jacks, which are modular connectors used for various types of network connections, such as Ethernet, phone, or multimedia.
The term "unpopulated" means that the patch panel does not come pre-installed with keystone jacks. Instead, it provides empty ports where you can insert keystone jacks of your choice based on your specific networking requirements. This flexibility allows you to customize the patch panel according to your needs, as different keystone jacks can be used for different types of network connections.
With 24 ports, this patch panel can accommodate up to 24 keystone jacks. The keystone jacks can be easily snapped into the ports, providing a secure and organized connection point for your network cables. Once the keystone jacks are installed, you can then connect your network devices, such as computers, switches, or routers, to the patch panel using patch cables.
The patch panel itself is typically mounted on a rack or enclosure, providing a central location for cable termination and making it easier to manage and troubleshoot network connections. It helps to maintain a neat and organized cabling infrastructure, reducing cable clutter and making it simpler to trace and reconfigure network connections when necessary.
In summary, a 24-port unpopulated Keystone Patch Panel is a versatile networking component that allows you to customize your cabling infrastructure by selecting and installing keystone jacks according to your specific network requirements.
